Lena Dunham is super salty that she was passed up by one of the most desirable hotties in the NFL.
The Girls star sat next to Odell Beckham, Jr at the Met Gala in May and recounted the story on her blog, claiming that she was ‘not the shape of a woman by his standards.’ Talking to Amy Schumer, who she was interviewing for her Lenny Letters series, Dunham, who was wearing a tuxedo that night, said the sports star sat at her table and paid the actress zero attention the whole night.
“Do I want to f*** it? Is it wearing a… yep, it’s wearing a tuxedo. I’m going to go back to my cell phone,” Lena says of the encounter. “It was like we were forced to be together, and he literally was scrolling Instagram rather than have to look at a woman in a bow tie.”
A Twitter firestorm quickly ensued in OBJ’s defense, with many folks calling the actress and avid feminist a hypocrite. “If you pay attention to Lena Dunham you’re sexualizing her. If you don’t pay attention you’re shallow and ignoring her,” wrote one twitter user @MatthewKick. “Lena Dunham is the epitome of hypocritical sexism. She conjures up dialogues stemming from her own insecurities to put OBJ on blast. Sad,” wrote @michael_boswell.
Dunham, however, insists that it was all jokes. “My story about him was clearly (to me) about my own insecurities as an average-bodied woman at a table of supermodels & athletes,” the 30-year-old actress tweeted on Friday.
Odell has yet to respond to the commentary…keeping up with his trend of ignoring Dunham.
