'Girls' creator Lena Dunham has admitted that she wouldn't want to look like a Victoria's Secret model as it would be a "burden".

We've often wondered what it would be like to look like a Victoria's Secret model. Would life be easier?

Would we be richer? Would we have more friends? Would we spend our whole life wearing just a bikini, Instagramming photos of ourself? Unfortunately, we'll never know, but Lena Dunham has gone a fair way to making us feel slightly better about the fact.

 

Lena Dunham: the grubby sexy girl taking over the US asked by Playboy - which she ironically appears in fully clothed - what she would do if she woke up in the body of a VS Angel, the 26-year-old, didn't say "stare at myself in the mirror" as we would, but instead gave a perfectly valid reason as to why she wouldn't like it.

 

 

"I don't think I'd like it very much… I don't want to go through life wondering if people are talking to me because I have a big rack. Not being the babest person in the world creates a nice barrier," she said. "The people who talk to you are the people who are interested in you. It must be a big burden in some ways to look that way and be in public."

 

No stranger to public nudity herself - she's unashamedly and perpetually naked in her self-penned hit comedy Girls - we already knew that when it comes to body confidence, Dunham has it in spades, but it's nice to see she's willing to vocalise it with some sound rationale. Hell, she's even managed to make us feel slightly sorry for Miranda, Candice, Alessandra et al. But only slightly - they are still beautiful millionaires after all.
