Lena Dunham & Jack Antonoff Reportedly Split

5 Must See Holiday Light Displays in LA

Thor actress Tessa Thompson says comments she made about Lena Dunham on Instagram were misinterpreted.

Earlier that month, Variety published an essay Dunham penned praising the Bleachers' lead singer.

Also in October, the couple celebrated their five and a half year anniversary together. "He showed me the importance of making political statements using your public platform", she wrote. Dunham apologised at the time.

We're all for unity in the face of sexual assault and harassment, but Dunham's background of defending alleged rapists may not make her the best spokesperson for this movement.

Dunham said in a series of tweets in November that she mistakenly thought Antonoff was going to propose. Dunham posted screenshots from their FaceTime session including one where Antonoff was eating a banana, and one where he's eating a sandwich.

The pair were last seen together this time a year ago at a pre-Grammy party, however, she did write an essay about Jack for Variety in October 2017.

In response, Tessa confirmed that "Lena was not anywhere present in our group during the countless hours of work for the last two months" and that Lena's "presence was a surprise to us all" when they hosted an open house for actresses for red carpet messaging. Jack and Lena were growing apart, and it only made sense for them to end their relationship where it was'.

The source also said that despite the breakup, both were supportive of each other. Either way, this news is unexpected because, well, Dunham and Antonoff seemed to be a totally solid couple right up until their split. The group included actresses who've been vocal about their involvement with Time's Up, including Thompson, Witherspoon, Streep, Emma Stone and Emma Watson (among others), as well as the activists who accompanied them to the Golden Globes. They instantly hit it off, soon moved into her Brooklyn home together and adopted a dog.

It's worth noting that Dunham has consistently been in hot water for her reported lack of cultural sensibility and blatant tone-deaf views on feminism.
