Lena Dunham revealed that she has a "Zen body philosophy"- in other words, a body that changes in certain days.

In an interview with Gothamist, the Girls star talked about how she is in a pitfall with other girls when it comes to expressing their bodies to the public, but doesn't let it manifest in her work.

"Believe me, in all my romantic relationships I'm like, 'Does he want to be dating a girl who's a size 0? Do you like my body? Is it just that you like my mind, and so you think that my body...? Or is it just that you don't like me at all?' Dunham said. "But somehow in my work that self consciousness hasn't manifested."

The actress and writer then talked about what she means by "Zen body philosophy."

"I'm sort of like: we're one weight one day, we're one weight another day, and some day our body just doesn't even exist at all!" Dunham said. "It's just a vessel I've been given to move through this life. I think about my body as a tool to do the stuff I need do, but not the be all and end all of my existence. Which sounds like I spent a week at a meditation retreat, but it's genuinely how I feel."

Dunham also revealed that she'll never be a size zero regardless of what is seen on television.

"I see pictures of myself when I'm a little kid, when I was tiny, my hips started really high, it's just what I'm shaped like," she said.
