The “Girls” multi-hyphenate did tell Fallon about her mom’s fantasy, though

It seems that no matter what Lena Dunham says, it somehow gets picked apart and turned into headlines. Sometimes, that’s warranted; others, not so much.

Whether she was purposefully playing it safe or just happened to be in a sweetly benign mood, Dunham made dissecting her words especially difficult during her appearance on the “Tonight Show” on Tuesday night.

There was no talk of Woody Allen, no mention of potentially quitting acting, or mea culpas for deleted tweets. Nothing about nudity, either. Nope, this interview was all about unity and things she and the host had in common.

Both, it turns out worked in video stores, which may stump the show’s younger viewers now that Blockbuster has been busted. In any case, that little tidbit led to a conversation about the 1991 Reese Witherspoon movie “Man in the Moon,” which both Dunham and Fallon loved. Then, they began discussing Dunham’s mother’s fantasy matchmaking skills, which entailed the new “Tonight” host and the “Girls” creator getting married.

Clearly, that didn’t happen, but they do make for a pleasant talk show duo.
