Dunham used dad to flirt

Lena Dunham

Lena Dunham used to flirt with men by asking them to play her father in a film.

The Girls actress is happily dating musician Jack Antonoff, but had an unusual way of trying to impress guys before she was in a relationship. Lena tried to engage with the opposite sex by offering them a role in a project she was supposedly working on.

“For awhile there if I was attracted to someone I’d propose that they star in the biopic of my father’s life I was developing #PickUpLines (sic),” she wrote on her Twitter account yesterday.

Lena has been with Fun. guitarist Jack for almost two years. She recently revealed that she never dreamed of finding someone so special.

“It makes me happy to be in a relationship that is really mutually supportive, where I am not making compromises and I feel understood. Because that is not a situation I expected…,” she confessed to Marie Claire. “So it makes me feel good to be able to tell all the girls on Twitter that you don’t have to date a guy who bores you a little but he’s nice, and you also don’t have to date that guy who is a jerk but you think his art is interesting. There is a person that exists in the middle.”

Lena is known for posting unusual musings on her Twitter page. On Monday the 27-year-old star hinted that she doesn’t totally trust her neighbors.

“If there’s a murder on my block the police should come talk to me because I’ve already suspected everyone,” she wrote.
