Lena Dunham married Luis Felber, her British-Peruvian boyfriend of six months


Lena Dunham has been living in the UK for the better part of two years. She burned so many bridges in America, professionally and personally. I doubt Lena’s move had the energy of “oh no, everyone hates me, I need to go to London.” I think Lena wanted a fresh start regardless and I genuinely feel bad for all of the British people who now have to deal with her bullsh-t. Back in June, Lena announced that she was dating someone named Luis Felber. He’s in a band. Since that announcement, she’s been featuring him a lot on her social media, as you can see from those photos. I’m not entirely sure when they started up, but I would guess that they first began seeing each other this past spring. And… now they’re married.

Lena Dunham is married! The Girls creator, 35, tied the knot with boyfriend Luis Felber, also 35, this weekend, a source confirms to PEOPLE.

Felber seemingly hinted at the special occasion early Sunday morning by posting the song “This Will Be Our Year” by The Zombies on his Instagram Story with heart and alien emojis.

Reps for Dunham did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

The actress first confirmed she was dating the English-Peruvian musician — known professionally as Attawalpa — during an interview with The New York Times, published in April. “It’s been a few months. I feel really lucky,” she said at the time, before calling her beau “the greatest person I’ve ever met.”

I mean, it feels like a dumb-kid move to marry a guy in a band whom you’ve only known for five or six months. But given their ages and the fact that I think they’ve been living with each other for months already, it is what it is. I wish them good luck, especially Luis. For what it’s worth, in the photos of them on her Instagram, he seems to adore her. Which is all she’s ever wanted.

    She has crazy eyes that’s all I gotta say here.

    • AmelieOriginal says:

      She’s never been photogenic and always looks like she just rolled out of bed to me.

      • SophieJara says:

        @AmelieOriginal I read an article once asking if that was intentional. Like, there are many designers and MUAs who make people with all kinds of proportions looks gorgeous, is she intentionally dressing badly so she can center herself in a narrative about her beauty being unrecognized / being victimized by the dominant culture?

        Although I don’t understand how hipsters dress in general.

    • Bettyrose says:

      LOL! Personally I’m fascinated to know what he’s thinking as he gazes adoringly at her. I don’t know anything about him except what’s in this article but still I’m curious what aspects of her personality he’s so drawn to. He might also be an entitled narcissistic hipster but I feel like you can only have one of those in a relationship.

  2. Pocket Litter says:

    I’m sorry. She’s so horrible that I had hoped you wouldn’t even bother with this story, or if you did, that it’d be in a cursory link comment.

  3. Veronika says:

    I didn’t recognize her, she looks different.

  4. TIFFANY says:

    Luis is currently what she wanted Jack to be. She was desperate to marry him and be the wife of a popular songwriter who is hella connected. I noticed that her celeb pics and conversations about knowing them wained when they broke up. It was almost like they tolerated her because of him.

    This will end in a mess because that is all Lena wants and knows.

  5. tealily says:

    I feel like we haven’t heard from her (professionally) in a while, so I googled and see that she’s currently executive producing a couple of things. So good for her. I guess I appreciate that she’s managed to not be in our faces for a little bit here. Maybe a sign a maturity? Anyway, hope they’re happy.

    • Sally says:

      She directed Catherine called Birdy this spring and I’m rather excited for that, despite her involvement. Can she not finish that instead of getting married? Please? For completely unselfish reasons?
      Seriously though, I have a weird soft spot for her in that she’s one of the very few (the only?) female film creatives who got away with cr*p usually only the guys get away with. Doesn’t mean I support any of that, but it’s admirable in its own weird and sad feminist way.
      Also I think she must have know that guy a little while longer, at least since early this year, I’ve looked semi-regularly at her IG ever since CCB was announced and there’ve been stories with him for a while now.

  6. Anners says:

    Aw good for her. Hopefully marriage (and being adored) fills the void in her and she can calm down her “look at me look at me DON’T look at me” shenanigans.

    • LillyfromLillooet says:

      Oh my goodness yes. She’s obviously hugely talented so everything here seems like a plus–the executive producer jobs, the committed husband who will hopefully satisfy her need for attention before she goes to social media.

      @TIFFANY interesting take, b/c back in the day it felt like sentiment was that Jack was with Lena because of her accomplishments. I loved Jack in the Long Pond sessions and he for sure would be a fascinating person to know–he’s a giver and a seer and a collaborator. Lena has also seemed like a black hole of me-ness. I think she might be kind of wearing to be around.

      But! She’s found lurve and she’s England’s problem now. Mazel tov!

  7. Christine says:

    I think everyone would be fine if we never had to hear of Lena Dunham again

  8. Lexistential says:

    Oh God.

  9. Jenny says:

    I don’t know anything about either of them. But the way he looks at her is just incredible.

  10. grabbyhands says:

    Cue the conscious uncoupling in 3, 2,1…….

  11. atorontogal says:

    Ummmm why aren’t we talking about Angelina and the Weeknd??

  12. Anna says:

    “I wish them good luck, especially Luis.”

    Ouch. And spot on. I feel sorry for the guy. Then again, it’s self-inflicted misery…

  13. Chaine says:

    Waiting for the inevitable bitter self-pitying “i got divorced” essays from her in a year or two.

  14. Kfg says:

    She’s vile.

  15. Natters says:

    Mazel tov!

  16. Cara says:

    I came here today specifically for this. Your stories about her always crack me up. I wish her well, but I can’t imagine it will last. I’m, admittedly, pretty jaded when it comes to love though.

  17. Mina_Esq says:

    That’s one tired looking couple. That’s all I’ve got.

  18. Chimney says:

    Good for her! he’s a handsome weirdo which fits her perfectly. Their life together on Instagram looks very peaceful as well. Plus she beat Jack to the altar so a win all around.

  19. Vanna says:

    May she have the marriage she deserves

  20. Annetommy says:

    The guy likes The Zombies. That’s a big plus in my book. I wish them well.

  21. Lyds says:

    England, thanks for the return of Meghan…for kicking her out, you get the (white) person that you deserve!

    Jokes aside, I do enjoy some of Durham’s writing, especially about her health issues. Girls was bearable (when she wasn’t in the scenes) and I actually liked Tiny Furniture as I felt like it was an accurate depiction of how someone like her would be treated/would navigate the world. In Girls, she wrote scenes depicting herself as this highly desirable person and I’m just like, pfffft, there goes my suspension of belief. Usually it’s the other way around, where an extremely beautiful person is disguised as someone unattractive (see every “nerdy girl” in movies and JGL in 500 Days of Summer), but Durham’s narcissism knows no bounds. I’ll watch her projects as long as she’s not acting in them.

  22. GYUF says:

    Just hearing about her is mentally and physically exhausting. Good luck to this dude!

  23. Annaloo. says:


    I’m so so sick of this attention seeking turkey!!!

  24. Penny says:

    I always thought she looked like a toddler who dressed herself and it made me irrationally angry. All that money, access to designers and stylists and she looked awful. I specifically remember her in leggings and a tshirt and her hand was down the back of her pants scratching her ass in public.
    Oh well. She deserves to be happy like anyone else. Hope it works out.

    He could do better.
