Lena Dunham has revealed that she attended rehab during a difficult time in her life.
The Girls writer was checked into rehabilitation to deal with her prescription drug issues.
“I had also completed in-patient treatment, known to the public as rehab for trauma and prescription drug dependency or, as I like to call it, a five-star hotel where they take away your razors,” she told Elle.
“It took a week, but as the drugs left my body and I made peace with the fact that I was here to heal.”
Discussing her weight fluctuations over the years, she said that completing rehab helped her regain her appetite.
“I got real hungry, real fast. If it wasn’t nailed down, I ate it.”
The actress admits that she currently keeps a food diary to help her keep track of her eating habits.
“I am body positive but I am also a young single woman working in Hollywood and I can’t just pretend that weight is not a thing. It’s a thing,” she explained.
Lena detailed how she lost a large amount of weight towards the end of her six-year relationship with Jack Antonoff.
“Sadness is the only thing that’s ever made me lose weight,” she said.
