"Girls" star and creator Lena Dunham, 27, is thinking of stepping out from in front of the camera.

"I don't know if I'm going to want to act anymore," she told Glamour for its latest issue, on newsstands March 18. "I'm always relieved on the days I don't have to."

In fact, the artist, who wants to focus on directing and writing, added that she prefers to see others onscreen than herself.

"I'd rather give parts to other women than be the woman having the parts," she added.

Well, if she does step out of the spotlight that's just fine with her, especially since she feels her prettiest when she's natural.

"I feel prettier with a naked face and ChapStick," she said. "But a good haircut makes a huge difference."

Dunham also revealed details about her emotional first date with guitarist Jack Antonoff.

"I remember talking with him on our first date and him being like, 'God, all the articles about your nudity on the show are such bulls--t,'" she said. "It's funny, 'cause in some ways that's the conversation we still have when I'm upset."
