Lena Dunham (over)shared a list of baby names she created with Jack Antonoff

Lena Dunham chats away outside of her hotel in Tribeca

Here are some pics of Lena Dunham a few weeks ago in New York. These photos just remind me of the fact that no matter how much weight Lena Dunham gains or loses, she’ll never know how to dress for her figure. Ever. Of course, I’ve always believed that Lena’s fashion sense is less about comfort or trends or even stuff she just genuinely likes. I’ve always believed that she dresses so horribly because she wants to be criticized, so she can assume a victimized posture and claim that we’re all terrible bullies for noticing that her clothes don’t fit and she looks like ten kinds of hell.

Anyway, because Lena needs attention and since we’re coming up to, like, the nine month or ten month anniversary of her split from Jack Antonoff, she thought it would be a good idea to overshare on social media. Because why not? Apparently, she just found a list of baby names she and Jack made in 2015, when they were together. She posted the list on Twitter:

It’s Peak… something. I was going to say Peak Hipster, but this isn’t hipster. It’s Peak Special Snowflake, really. That’s what Lena is – she thinks every single she does and says is brilliant and funny and notable and that’s why she shares this kind of thing. I mean, it would have been MAYBE cute and bittersweet to share this with an ex-boyfriend – if you were still on good terms – privately, and absolutely not on social media. But now all I can think about is how Jack Antonoff and Lena’s relationship fell apart when she was undergoing a hysterectomy, and this just feels emotionally manipulative. And again, why share it on Twitter?? (Also, most of the tweets at Lena on this tweet are variations of “leave that poor boy alone.”)

Also, the actual names… OZ. Na. Carrot. Shogo. RAH. Gracious. OMFG.

    Someone wants sooooo much attention.

  2. OSTONE says:

    I cringe every time I read something about this woman. She is so cringe worthy and embarrassing. A shame she is labeled as “the voice of our generation” heck no.

  3. TaniaOG says:

    She needs to go away and never come back. Not interested in anything she has to offer.

  4. Ides of March says:

    Much like the Markles, I can’t wait for this person to go away. You’re not cool, you’re not edgy and you’re not funny. Ugh. Jack dodged a bullet in this one.

  5. Deanne says:

    Good god, what is she wearing? She’s her own personal troll. She looks like she rolled out of bed and walked out the door. The baby name thing is just another example of her extreme thirst and the fact that she’ll never let her ex get on with his life. This is something you’d possible share privately, but of course she had to do it on social media. Imagine her antics when he actually get serious with someone else? I can’t stand either of them, but she’s never going to let the man move on and I find her pathetic.

    • Veronica S. says:

      I mean, honestly…I don’t think women have a responsibility to look any sort of way in public beyond basic hygiene and acceptable clothing. If people want to throw unflattering athletic wear and put their hair in a messy topknot, I could care less.

      The behavior, on the other hand, is what makes her a gross person.

      • Deanne says:

        I don’t expect her or anyone else to look glammed up for my approval, but she could easily wear looser, casual clothes and not always look completely dishevelled .For me it’s that she doesn’t even look comfortable in what she wears. Her clothes are always wrinkled, don’t fit and she’s always tugging and pulling at them while they ride up.I mean she’s pulling them out of her backside in some of the photos. It’s hot and humid all over right now so almost everyone I know, including mysel,f has been looking less than put together lately, but she always looks like that. Like basic hygiene is NOT a part of her daily routine. She just posted a bunch of nude photos online too on top of the baby names creepiness. She’s clearly wanting attention. I almost feel like she’s having some sort of mental breakdown. I don’t like her, but I hope she gets help if she needs it. She was in a relationship for a long time and breakups are hard. Especially if they are one sided.

  6. Queenb says:

    What is she digging for in that picture?

  7. onerous says:

    I feel the same way about her “outfits”
    Which are neither cool nor trendy and certainly look anything BUT comfortable. I think she wants to be criticized.

    I mean – we should all be free to dress how we want, but she’s got to be trolling hard core with her clothes. I mean – ill fitting polyester in the hottest summer known to man? That just isn’t a thing people do who are looking for comfort OR style.

  8. Digital Unicorn says:

    She really is the crazy ex who won’t go away. She can’t dress for sh!t.

  9. Sueñarita says:

    She always looks like she smells, even on the red carpet when you assume everyone’s well groomed.

  10. Pamm says:

    “I may not have a good body, personality or attitude but I can always find a boyfriend!!!” -Lena Dunham, August 15,2018.

  11. grabbyhands says:

    Honey, how can we miss you if you won’t go away? (No but srsly-leave and don’t come back).

    She definitely missed the chapter in the book of life titled “Some Things Should Be Kept Private”.

    Not only is it grossly obsessive and creepy and attention seeking, it feels like she is doing it as a form of public punishment to him “See?? I can’t have kids now, but remember when we talked about kids??? Remember? But you dumped me. But it’s totally okay!! ::insert crazy laughter:::Love U!!”. Like, how do you respond to that. He can’t, except with something that is the Twitter equivalent of a nervous laugh.

  12. Missy says:

    Cringe. Did her ex respond? This is so creepy

  13. Patricia says:

    Not only her clothes but her hygeine in general just doesn’t seem up to par. What is that nasty little top knot? Like come on, try a tiny bit. I manage to do better than this when I’m playing with my kids in the back yard ffs.

    And this tweet is so so embarrassing and so immature. It seems like a fourteen year old would do this.
    Does he have a current girlfriend? Because I’m sure she doesn’t appreciate Lena needing to randomly share pointless momentos of her former intimacy with Jack for the whole world to see and decipher.

  14. KNy says:

    She “found” it on her computer. Dude, she hunted for it. And then shared it publicly. For all her haphazard clothes and hair, her actions are nothing but calculated.

    I get that she’s probably still hurting over their break up. They were together for a long time. But she did this for a reaction.

  15. Karen says:

    She strikes me as the kind of girl who claims she’s “best friends” with her ex, when she’s really just desperate and jealous and manipulative. She has probably heard he’s dating someone new, and so she posts stuff like this. It’s a message to the new girl: you’re never going to replace me, I will always have the strongest bond with him even though we’re not a couple anymore, bla bla. Standard crazy ex behavior camouflaged as “friendship”.

    I bet Jack Antonoff don’t give a toss about Lena or the baby names they once wrote down, this is just cringe.

    • lucy2 says:

      Exactly. I’m imagining whatever relationship they still have is very one sided.
      Breakups can be hard, I get it, and they were together a long time, but that kind of manipulative nonsense is just bad for everyone. AND to make it public, knowing they’re both famous and it would go REALLY public???
      Holy hell, Lena, get thee to a therapist.

  16. Marty says:

    Just when I think she can’t get more annoying.

    Also, aren’t they both seeing different people now? What a shitty thing to do to everyone involved.

  17. GigiC says:

    Maybe just me …but this just screams emotional abuse to me. Whotf posts bs like this? Lena has always been annoying but now I’m starting to believe she’s an abusive, calculating narcissist. Emotionally healthy people don’t hold their loved ones hostage like she does.

  18. Miss Margo says:

    I could not be this person’s friend under any circumstance. What a mess.

  19. Toc says:

    She posted a nude pic to celebrate her surgery. She could at last comb her hair. She seems unkept. There is no reason for that.

  20. Lindy says:

    Oh my…. This is so, so, so cringey. Just the worst.

  21. Slowsnow says:

    It’s funny how everyone here is giving her what she wants:
    - saying nasty things about her appearance (seriously WTF?!)
    - calling out her borderline behaviour
    Thus giving this narcissist loads of attention and her own post.
    She clearly brings out the worst in us.
    PS: what is this obsession with hygiene based on appearance? Regularly, I read the most appalling comments about Stewart, Dunham, Norman Reedus… There are loads of people who do not care about our mainstream notion of “looking good” but still shower and smell good. I actually liked that about her (before I found out what she was). Obviously someone unfortunate looking can also tie a bun and leave the house with no make-up without offending anyone right? If his was Gigi she’d look gorgeous anyway… So we are basically saying here that less attractive people need to compliment the way we think humans should look or else… They’re not clean.
    I undertsand people not liking her but based on this Tweet she is far more eligible to be the object of pity than of contempt.

    • Kitten says:

      Eh…I get what you’re saying to a point. Is it a double standard that we have when it comes to the expectation that celebs should look good all the time? Maybe. But I’ve heard far worse said about Jen Garner’s appearance and that’s usually leveled at her when she’s running around with her three children, not sitting on a stoop chatting on the phone.

      I also think that as celebrities, they will ALWAYS be subject to a different standard in terms of how they present themselves to the public. That’s just an aspect of their job that they can’t change.
      Lena has a habit of choosing AWFUL outfits that don’t flatter her figure. Sure, that’s her personal style and choice but as someone in the public eye, she has to expect that when she’s on the red carpet, people will be looking at her and judging.

      And yes, if it was GiGi wearing that outfit, she would look gorgeous. But while Lena and the rest of us mere mortals -will never look like GiGi, most of us know how to dress in a comfortable and flattering way. *shrugs*

    • harpy says:

      I think there are legitimate critiques of Lena to be made but it’s kind of low to bring her appearance into it. I get this is a gossip site but I’ve seen others get criticized for dragging the way a popular celeb dresses while others are given a free pass based on how “problematic” they are.

      Just saying.

      • Carrie says:

        Yeah I’m reading here and learning about people and it’s now making sense how prevalent bullying is and why. Lena needs a good therapist and sane balanced kind fun friends. I don’t like her but I’d rather see constructive advice delivered with kindness than dump on her.

        I knew someone like her. Had to get away once I realized; too late but at least I’ve got safe distance. Think of Kathy Bates character in Misery… that’s where she could end up. If all she gets is hate, she won’t be able to improve and could end up hurting others worse than what she’s doing to her ex. Imho.

  22. Jess says:

    I don’t mind the way she dresses, maybe she’s comfortable with how she looks and doesn’t care to “dress for her body type”. I think the way she dresses is refreshing, and I enjoyed seeing her body on the show Girls, not many women her size are willing to strip down like that, even if it is attention seeking.

  23. Mia4s says:

    My sincere wish is that every woman (who is not incapable and/or an abuser) who wants a child is able to have one….I’m being tested here.

    So….ummmm…can I just say I hope she makes the very valid and reasonable personal decision not to have kids?

    Seriously…there’s something not right about her.

  24. Amelie says:

    It’s Peak Desperation.

    But genuine question: what clothes should Lena be wearing for her body type? I don’t know what kind of body she has (not familiar with those terms). I’m not sure if maybe Lena has trouble finding clothes that look good on her because the fashion industry doesn’t make enough clothes for people with her body type. What would look good her? I see people always criticizing what she wears but rarely offering any suggestions.

    • Kitten says:

      I’m gonna sound like a broken record here but what about midi-length tank dress? Simple and flattering on any body type.
      Pencil skirt and sleeveless blouse? A rayon wrap dress in a darker solid color? Hell, even just leggings and a loose, flowy tank top would be a better choice the crap she’s wearing here. For a pear-shape, lighter fabrics and V-neck, brighter tops are good and darker pants/skirts on the bottom half.

      I see women on a daily basis who have similarly-shaped bodies who knock it out of the ballpark with their clothing choices. I mean to the point where I sometimes stop them and ask them where they got their outfit. She doesn’t have to look like this, she CHOOSES too.

    • Veronica S. says:

      A lot of it is fit, tbh. Women who are larger or curvier (especially women with heavy busts) really benefit from properly tailored clothing, which she can definitely afford.

  25. Lala11_7 says:

    She will be DELIGHTED when her “Ex” names his first child off that list…ABSOLUTELY BESIDES HERSELF WITH INTENSE JOY!!!! #happenedtomeinreallife #keepyourbidnessoffthenet

    • Giddy says:

      If those were really his favorite names, LD has now made sure that he can’t use them. No woman wants to use a baby name from a list he made with an old girlfriend. To make matters worse, if he forgot and used a name from the list, she would be all over social media lamenting his use of “their “ names.

      • Kit says:

        I think that’s why she did it. Post hysterectomy depression is real. If she’s feeling things about a break up, about babies, about her ex having babies with someone else, maybe naming it something they chose together…. it’s a bit passive aggressive and cringeworthy but she’s making her point to him.
        Choose another vegetable, Jack!

    • harpy says:

      ah, yes, the coveted name “carrot”. but for real I cannot wait for this generation of hipster children to grow up and name all their kids jane.
      sorry your baby name got stolen, la la. that’s a d*** move.

  26. harpy says:

    Lena Dunham gives me so much secondhand embarrassment.

  27. harpy says:

    Update: I looked at her twitter.
    Lena…you have 5 million followers. Please talk to a friend or a therapist because you’re clearly in a hard place and boundaries are important.

  28. loveotterly says:

    In addition to this, she also posted a series of very bizarre completely nude selfies. I worry she is having some kind of breakdown.

  29. The Original G says:

    Antonoff about to announce he’s expecting a baby with someone else?

  30. Oliviajoy1995 says:

    Can’t stand this chic. Never have. She’s just too much. All the time. She must be exhausting to be friends or have a relationship with.

  31. Marjorie says:

    I think she’s losing it. Who would post those nude pictures?

  32. Sara says:

    I can’t with her she’s so annoying but I also I can’t with people saying “ leave the poor boy alone”. Hes a grown ass man in his 30s and he seems to have dumped her when his stock was rising and hers was fading, not to mention during her health problems and then hooks up with a model ( eyeroll) who probably wouldn’t have looked twice at him before he became a big time producer. Fact is when they got together he wasn’t what he is now and he benefitted hugely from being part of the hype around her and girls and he also played along on social media in establishing them as one of the hipster it couples of that era.

  33. Socks says:

    I dislike everything about her.

  34. mx says:

    omg I have a kid named Na! His twin named him that because he couldn’t pronounce his proper name. I feel sooooo hip right now.

  35. bears says:

    I know this isn’t a popular opinion but man, I kinda dig the hot, steaming mess of no fucks that is Lena Dunham. I feel like she might be pretty exhausting to have as a friend because of her consistent preoccupation with ME ME ME. But she’s just unapologetically (most of the time) herself. Even if I don’t like that self all the time, I respect her for being it, if that makes any sense?

  36. indian says:

    She’s .a . young woman that just went through a serious illness, pain and dealing with the fact that she can’ have children.On top of that, her boyfriend broke up during that time.. What’s side is that she’s still trying to be friends with someone who would treat her like that.

    As for the rest, it’s trauma. Seems to be she lives her life publicly.. so, let her be. Some of the things about her I can’t stand, like her book. However, sharing a nude picture and this, it’s minor. It’s someone in pain sharing something publicly. Like someone that breaks down and cries in public. Let her be..

  37. Shasha says:

    I don’t like Lena, but it annoys me everyone insists she should look more attractive or put together or nicer or even more hygenic. Why is being attractive and put together a MUST for women but not really at all for men? Esp in entertainment? How many famous men in entertainment go around looking sweaty, paunchy, smelly, lumpy, and oily? And get NO shit for it? Dozens and dozens of famous men that I can think of. And nobody cares. There are plenty of famous men present and past who NEVER have looked attractive or put together (Louis CK, Chris Farley, any number of comedians or musicians, etc.) and everyone is perfectly fine with that.

    Women should be able to be famous for their talents or the entertainment they provide, and still look dumpy, unstylish and unhygenic just like famous men are allowed to.

  38. Yes Doubtful says:

    She does wear the most unflattering clothing and I tend to think it’s on purpose. For attention. Which reminds me of another celeb that dresses terrible for attention…Kim K.
