Lena Dunham makes an appearance on Ellen today, and talks all about the criticism she received for losing weight. The Girls star recently started working out to combat her painful battle with endometriosis, and some fans were disappointed in her for slimming down. “Well it’s just so crazy because I spent six years of my career being called things like ‘bag of milk’ on the internet, you know ‘baby cow,’ ‘aging cow.’ I just never felt self conscious about it.
