LENA DUN­HAM

USA TODAY US Edition - - LIFE -

Dun­ham revealed in the March is­sue of Vogue that she has un­der­gone a com­plete hys­terec­tomy. In a per­sonal es­say, the 31-year-old ac­tress dis­cusses the full scope of the dam­age that en­dometrio­sis caused her body, after “years of com­plex surg­eries mea­sur­ing in the dou­ble dig­its. ... The only beau­ti­ful de­tail is that the or­gan — which is meant to be shaped like a light bulb — was shaped like a heart.”
