‘Girls’ Star Lena Dunham Offers Advice to Feminists on Body Baring Clothes (Video)

The actress shares her knowledge in video segments promoting her upcoming memoir, “Not That Kind of Girl”

Move over, “Dear Abby” — Lena Dunham is here with a helping of unsolicited advice.

The Emmy-nominated star of HBO’s “Girls” penned a memoir of sorts disguised as an advice column called “Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She’s ‘Learned.'”

To promote the upcoming offering, Dunham created a series of videos that offer hip suggestions for better living.

For instance, one inquisitive fan wrote in to ask whether it was hypocritical for feminists to wear booty shorts and a t-shirt that says “fu-k me I’m famous.”

Dunham didn’t think so.

“A huge part of being a feminist is giving other women the freedom to make choices you might not necessarily make for yourself,” she said. “Just like we should respect women who cover up for reasons of shyness or modesty or religious beliefs,” she added “We have to allow for the woman who wants to walk down the street in booty shorts.”

Dunham covered a variety of other topics, including plus sizes, sleeping with bad people and dealing with bullies.
