Lena Dunham posed in her birthday suit to let the world know how truly comfortable she is with her body.
The 31-year-old “Girls” alum posted a nude selfie on Instagram Thursday strategically covering her private areas with two pear emojis and a honey pot emoji.
“I spent so many years loving my body but thinking it wasn’t lovable by others – its sole purpose was to be fodder for jokes,” she wrote in the caption.
“I performed the insult so no one else could,” Dunham continued. “I don’t regret any of it – that’s my art and that was my truth – but now, at age 31, having been through hell and back with my health and other people’s perceptions of my physicality, I feel deeply comfortable with the idea that this pear-shaped pot of honey is equally good for making people laugh and laying out like a Suicide Girl circa 2004.”

Dunham often shares encouraging messages about body confidence. In March, the actress lashed out at critics who attacked her for losing weight.

“I’ve made it pretty clear over the years that I don’t give even the tiniest of s—- what anyone else feels about my body,” she posted on Instagram. “I’ve accepted that my body is an ever changing organism, not a fixed entity. …I smile just as wide no matter my current size because I’m proud of what this body has seen and done and represented.”
