Lena Dunham Won’t Marry Until Same-Sex Marriage Is Legal in 50 States
Lena Dunham is always one to make big statements. As the creator, writer and star of the groundbreaking HBO series Girls, she regularly challenges conventional ideas about youth, beauty, success and urban living.
As it turns out, Lena's passion for making bold, socially relevant decisions extends to her personal life as well. Lena appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to discuss her upcoming guest appearance on Scandal and the conversation turned to Lena's romantic life. The 28-year-old told Ellen that she and her longtime boyfriend, Jack Antonoff, won't marry until gay marriage is legal in all 50 states.
"The idea of having a celebration that can't be fully shared among all the people in my life and all the people that we love just doesn't really feel like a celebration at all, so until that's something that everyone can join into with no sense of being left out on any level, politically, emotionally, that's not something that we're going to do," Lena told Ellen.
Lena and Jack have been together for three years, and while they've been the subject of engagement rumors thanks to the ring Lena wears on her left finger, they have no immediate plans to wed.
"You and Jack, here's the one thing I want to say that I admire very much," Ellen told the Girls star. "You're very happy and very in love but you won't get married until it is legal for everyone to get married in all 50 states and I love that."
