Actress Lena Dunham made headlines by showing off her body again this weekend — but with a bit of twist.
The 29-year-old actress is mostly known for showing off her body in front of TV cameras on the set of her hit HBO series, Girls.
However, this weekend, Lena showed off a lot of skin in front of photographers taking pictures at a charity race in the Hamptons.
According to Radar Online, Lena Dunham wore a colorful Mara Hoffman bikini to participate in the charity paddle board race — an outfit which put quite a lot of her curvaceous body on display.
From the big smile that Lena flashed for the camera while wearing her bikini, it was apparently clear that she had no shame in her wardrobe decision, and was even more excited about the event.
According to the report, the main goal of the charity race was to raise money for Paddle for Pink.
Lena Dunham shared her excitement leading up to the big day with her 2.37 million Twitter followers earlier this week.

I’m up against Gabrielle Reese and Laird Hamilton in a water sport race so DEFINITELY BET ON ME. — Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) July 31, 2015
In a separate tweet, Dunham also confirmed she recently wrapped filming for the fifth season of Girls, claiming that she and her character Hannah are “starting to look alike” after spending 52 episodes together.
While promoting her book, Not That Kind of Girl, Lena Dunham openly discussed how she felt about her body in a September, 2014, interview with People magazine.
“I really feel good with my size now. I know when I say that people are like, ‘mm hmm’, but I just do! It used to be when I went into a room with all thin women I felt like, what’s wrong with me? Now I just feel special.”
Dunham also admitted that she still struggled with a daily dose of dread and anxiety.
“It’s like, ‘Oh, you again?’ I really love my life, but I’ve kind of worn anxiety grooves into my brain. It just doesn’t always sound good in there.”
However, Lena Dunham has apparently not allowed those moments of dread or the negative criticism of others to stop or even slow her down in any way — personally or professionally.
