Actress Lena Dunham has revealed that she was raped in the first season of ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,’ and has since been trying to come to terms with the trauma.
In an interview with the Huffington Post, the Girls creator shared that she met her co-stars while filming the series, and they “were like, ‘Lena, you gotta tell us a story about how we met.'”
“I remember thinking that we were going to be a couple,” she said.
“I was like, I don’t want to be the wife of a coop.
And then it hit me, I’m a feminist, and I’m not married to a coob.
I was like: ‘What are we going to do?
When I wrote it, I said: ‘I’m not a rape victim,’ because that’s how I felt,” she told HuffPost. “
When Dunham started writing about the rape in the series finale, she said that she became concerned that she had “given myself a gift.””
It was something that was really liberating.””
It wasn’t something that I was afraid of.
It was something that was really liberating.”
But Dunham has since come to the realization that she did not have to be as open as she initially thought.
“The rape itself, the way it was handled and how it was portrayed was not my favorite part of the whole experience,” she explained.
“Because, you know, I wasn’t in a relationship, so there wasn’t that sort of feeling of, ‘Oh my god, I am not safe in this relationship, because I was raped by this guy.'”
As she has been dealing with the rape herself, Dunham is now speaking out about it in an effort to make a difference in the world, and has taken the time to take a step back from the spotlight.
“It’s been a very difficult, exhausting process to be on stage as a female performer.
I’ve been on stage in front of an audience of millions of people, and there are a lot of ways to be hurt and vulnerable,” she added.
“The way I’m handling this is by being myself, and by saying that I don’s not a victim.
I’m still a survivor of a sexual assault.
I have not been able to live my life in a way that would be safe for me, for my children, for myself.
And I don, I want to continue to be able to do that.
But I think it’s important that people understand that I am a survivor.
I am in a position of power that I need to use it to create a better world for people.”
She continued, “I’m so grateful for what I have done to help people, but also I feel like there’s a lot more to do.
And if I’m going to continue being a voice for survivors and for those who need to be heard, I need more voices, and more support.”
Dunham has spoken about the trauma of rape in a number of ways in recent months.
In April, she spoke at the American Psychological Association’s annual convention about her experiences, and explained how she had been raped when she was a child.
“When a person has been sexually assaulted, it’s an assault.
It’s an act of power and control,” she declared.
“And when you are the one who’s been raped, you don’t know who you are.
And so I think I need a lot less help, a lot longer, from people who have been raped than I need from people, or people who are survivors, who have not experienced a sexual violence.
So that’s why I’m so thankful that I’ve gotten to speak on the stage.””
As I’ve learned more about this, and as a survivor, I have realized that sometimes the people who need support are the people that aren’t getting help.
So that’s why I’m so thankful that I’ve gotten to speak on the stage.”
Dunamp’s rape came to light earlier this month, when the New York Times published a report detailing her alleged rape.
The incident occurred when she met a man named David in the street, who told her that he was working on a film for the BBC and wanted to shoot a scene with her.
The pair had been friends for several years, and Dunham, who was filming the scene in the Bronx, agreed to meet with him, as well as a friend.
She had been dating David since the fall of 2013, and when the two met, they had a casual conversation about working together on a project.
But, when she arrived, David allegedly pushed her onto a bench and raped her.
“I had been with him since I was a teenager,” Dunham wrote in her statement, “and we had a lot in common.
He was smart, handsome, and charming, and he had made it clear that he had a passion for film,
