Lena Dunham Clarifies Comments Regarding Acting Hiatus

Posted Friday March 14, 2014 2:04 PM GMT

She put fans in a tizzy after hinting at a possible career change-up during her recent interview with Glamour magazine, but not to fear Lena Dunham. The "Girls" star isn't going anywhere soon.

As previously reported by GossipCenter, the HBO star told the fashion mag, "I don't know if I'm going to want to act anymore. 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," Lena added.

But Dunham quickly cleared up the comments during a recent red carpet interview with E! and said that she's not quitting her acting career.

"She's just a phenomenal writer. So I know she'll do whatever she feels like doing. I just hope she doesn't stop acting because she's so good," Lena's "Girls" co-star Allison Williams explained.

Jemima Kirke gave her point-of-view, and quipped, "Didn't Jay Z say he was going to quit rapping awhile ago?"
