TV actress Lena Dunham, who has faced flak for not having a perfect curvaceous figure, remains positive nevertheless, all thanks to her parents.

The 27-year-old is known for TV show “Girls”, and is often criticised for her plump figure.

My parents both have really healthy attitudes (not just) about their own bodies, but also about the range of things that can be beautiful. But they also just always made me feel pretty and cool and smart, even in the moments when I have known – and still know – that my body wasn’t fitting into a traditional Hollywood idea of the female body,” she has said in the October issue of Marie Claire.
