Right before 2000, a 14-year-old Lena Dunham filled out a "Millenium Diary" and answered questions about everything from her personal motto to what "taste makes you melt." Below, we select our five favorite answers from the actress and writer's millenium book.
An invention that would make her life easier in the new Millennium: "A shower where you could lie down and sleep while your hair is washed for you. Also, a dream recorder so you could watch your dreams on tape." And, she thinks there will be a Hilton on the moon in 2025.
On what she would buy if she could afford it at this moment: "rose pink felt birkinstocks." Why are Birkenstocks the dream shoe of every 14-year-old girl? Contoured cork footbeds are certainly not cool or even particularly stylish, and yet they are the coolest things ever circa 7th and 8th grade. A mystery for the ages...
Her third (and most meaningful) thing for which she is complimented on: "my uniqueness."
Something forbidden she did that might even have surprised her closest friends: "had people cut off the airflow to my brain and pass me out." Uh, what?
Her motto: "Lena is my name. Learn it, live it, love it. Just because people don't understand you, doesn't mean you're an artist." Truth be told.
