"I don't know if I'm going to want to act anymore," the 27-year-old told Glamour US on the future of Girls.

"I'm always relieved on the days I don't have to. I'd rather give parts to other women than be the woman having the parts."

Hold the phone. Anyone who watches the HBO sitcom chronicling the lives of four twenty-something New York women will know that the plot line revolves around Dunham's character Hannah Horvath and her quest to be a writer. Though viewers might question the necessity of her constant near nakedness, it is fair to say that there would be no show without Horvath.

It was a sigh of relief then when the subject of a film cropped up at a talk with LA's Television Academy on Thursday. "Sure. Why not?" was the response of the show's executive producer Ilene S. Landress. "If Lena and [co-writers] Jenni [Konner] and Judd [Apatow] have something left to say."

As Dunham has just penned her first tome, Not That Kind of Girl, and will edit an upcoming issue of America's Archie comic, there's no doubt that the word master has plenty to say. It's just a question of when she will have time to say it.
