Lena Dunham celebrou as 33 primaveras, que completou nessa segunda-feira, em Los Angeles, fazendo o bem. Ela usou a deixa do próprio aniversário para organizar uma festa beneficente e arrecadar dinheiro para a Friendly House, rede de casas de recuperação para mulheres carentes fundada em 1920 em Worcester, no estado americano de Massachusetts. Aos invés de presentes, pediu aos convidados que fizessem doações para a entidade.
Longe da telinha desde 2017, quando foi ao ar o último episódio de sua série “Girls”, Dunham mostrou que tem bons contatos em Hollywood e ganhou os parabéns de gente como as irmãs Scouter e Rumer Willis (filhas de Demi Moore e Bruce Willis), a modelo “plus size” Tess Holiday e os atores Tommy Dorfman e… Brad Pitt! Este último, aliás, divide com a aniversariante os créditos no aguardadíssimo “Era Uma Vez em Hollywood”, que será lançado em Cannes no próximo dia 21 e entra em cartaz nos cinemas do resto do mundo a partir de 26 de julho.
Na produção que também conta com Leonardo DiCaprio no elenco, a atriz e comediante vai interpretar Catherine Share, também conhecida pelo apelido “Cigana”, uma das integrantes da “Família Manson” cujos crimes chocantes cometidos no fim dos anos 1960 servirão de mote para o longa dirigido por Quentin Tarantino.

I may own a birthday bitch hat, but IRL I’m no big birthday bitch. For someone who loves both attention and presents, I’ve sure cancelled a lotta bday parties at the last minute (a special sorry to @mattpolf who had already hired a crafting teacher last year, and @lesleyarfin who was ready to DJ in 2011.) I used to think there was something a bit unseemly about an adult leaning into their birthday, until I realized I was actually just jealous of the confidence and self-love it takes to say “it’s my day, people!” I often felt I was making up for some original sin and that the nicest thing I could do for others on my birthday was make myself as unobtrusive as possible (it never worked and I usually either barfed or cried.) But this year is different. This year I’m… wait for it… happy. And so grateful for where I am, who I am, and everyone who has helped me on my journey to health & sobriety. 32 was good to me, and for 33 I wanted to say a big old thank you. So I hosted a Spring fundraiser for @friendlyhousela (the first recovery home for women in the United States) in LA last week. It was the best day ever and @anniecampbell literally brought a Pinterest board to life!!! And today, rather than presents, I’d love for you to donate to Friendly House, which is dedicated to helping women navigate the journey through addiction to recovery. It’s a journey I know first hand can only be attempted with love and support, which is why I have started a scholarship fund for women who are determined to recover but don’t have the financial means to begin. Go to the link in my bio to donate. Thank you to everyone who came out to support last week; you melt my heart. Thank you for the birthday wishes. And a special thank you to those of you who donate. It brings me such joy to think of how together we can directly affect so many women who have forgotten that they matter. Let’s remind them! Lots of LOVE xo
