Lena Dunham Shares Her Struggles with Body Image and OCD

Lena Dunham stopped by "Good Morning America" for her new book release.

“You’d think it was the sexual humiliations, but for me it was being clear that I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about food,” Dunham said. “I spend a lot of my career trying to break down the negative forces that the media exerts on women in trying to control their body image, so for me it’s all very sort of anathema to who I am to admit that I too have struggled with the concept of perfection.”

Dunham attributed her booming career as the reason she started to have a healthier outlook on food.

“When you love your job and love what you do, you feel like a tool being put to its proper use and you see food as fuel and a way to get where you need to go, and less to your demise,” she explained.
