Lena Dunham Says She 'Stopped Being Able To Eat' After Trump Became President

No diet, no exercise, just Trump.

Lena Dunham is known for her curvy figure and being an advocate for body positivity, but lately she's been showing off a slimmer physique.

Her secret? Donald Trump.

That's right: no diet, no exercise, just Trump becoming the 45th President of the United States.

In an interview on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM radio show Monday morning, the 30-year-old actress, a major supporter of Hillary Clinton's, revealed she stopped eating after the election.

"Donald Trump became president and I stopped being able to eat food," the "Girls" star said. "Everyone’s been asking like, 'What have you been doing?' And I’m like, 'Try soul-crushing pain and devastation and hopelessness, and you, too, will lose weight.'"

Dunham and the POTUS have long had a war of words. She first threatened to move to Canada if he won the election (spoiler alert: she never did), a decision Trump supported by saying it would be "a great, great thing for [America] if she got out."

And if that didn't set fire to flame, Lena even dressed up as a "Grabbed Pussy" for Halloween.

"(Trump) said I was a B-list actor with no mojo... Here’s the funny thing. Of course, it’s a mistake," Dunham told radio host Howard Stern, according to Us Weekly. "But we’re talking about him like he’s a person who is operating in a sane way; we’re talking about him like a person who doesn’t have a personality disorder."

Also this week, the writer said she would avoid insulting Trump's appearance because it is counterproductive.

"All he does is talk about women like they’re objects," she said at TimesTalks: A Final Farewell to the Cast of Girls. "It doesn’t reclaim our power to talk about him like he’s an object. It doesn’t reclaim our power to insult his physicality."
