'Girls' creator strikes a pose

By |

Lena Dunham graces the cover of this week's issue of Rolling Stone and, for her shoot, the Girls creator cuddled with fuzzy stuffed animals and a very real bunny. "When I found out I was going to be on the cover of Rolling Stone, I was incredibly excited," says Dunham. "[It's] like when you find out you're getting inducted in the Smithsonian Hall of Fame."

As the clip shows, the Golden Globe winner struck both tough and humorous poses in front of the camera, as well as paused to reflect on the success of Girls. "My show won the Golden Globes on Sunday, so that was a very exciting day, and Monday, I just went back to work like it was a normal thing," she says. "And I spent Monday night continuing to work but sort of with a glow of, 'If I decide to just stop and eat some candy for awhile, I will be ok.'"
