Respect is the key to my love life: Lena Dunham
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.
