Re­spect is the key to my love life: Lena Dun­ham

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Amer­i­can ac­tor Lena Dun­ham (left) thinks re­spect is the key to her re­la­tion­ship with her boyfriend, mu­si­cian Jack Antonoff.

Dun­ham, who has been dat­ing the mu­si­cian for al­most four years, doesn’t think they’d be to­gether if she wasn’t a huge fan of both of his bands, Fun and Bleach­ers, re­ports fe­male­first.co.uk.

“I couldn’t be with some­one whose work I didn’t re­spect. I would be so re­sent­ful about him be­ing on the road if I didn’t think, ‘You be­ing out there is bring­ing joy to peo­ple at your shows.’ You have to go, ‘My re­la­tion­ship makes every­thing else pos­si­ble be­cause it’s love’,” she was quoted as say­ing.

But the 29-year-old ad­mits she finds it dif­fi­cult to be apart from Jack a lot due to their hec­tic sched­ules.

“When­ever peo­ple ask, ‘ What’s the se­cret to a long- dis­tance?’, I’m like, ‘ It’s hard.’ That’s why it’s re­ally im­por­tant that we share a home be­cause you’re like, ‘ Okay, you’re com­ing back here,’” she said.
