Lena Dunham has always been distrustful in matters of love. “Who is going to want to go out with me? I have post-traumatic stress disorder and I do not have a uterus ”, the screenwriter, director and actress lamented in an interview with The Cut in 2018, after undergoing a uterus removal due to severe pain caused by endometriosis. The years have shown him wrong. The creator of the series Girls, 35, has exchanged the “yes, I want” this weekend with her boyfriend, the musician Luis Felber. The wedding took place in secret and after almost a year of relationship, as confirmed by the American magazine People through people close to her.
Felber already showed his enthusiasm for that special occasion early Sunday morning, by publishing his own version of the song This Will Be Our Year from The Zombies on his Instagram story with a heart, a gesture dedicated to his wife today. However, it was not until a few hours ago that the link was confirmed.
The actress first announced that she was dating the Peruvian-English musician, professionally known as Attawalpa, during an interview with The New York Times published last April. “It’s been a few months [desde el comienzo de la relación]. I feel very lucky, “she confessed, before referring to her boyfriend as” the best person she has ever met. ” In June, a series of photos of the couple on whose foot he congratulated Felber on his birthday was launched to share on his social networks: “When I was a three-week-old baby and I was in downtown Manhattan, I had no idea that a baby was going to be born in England (in Winchester, no less!) that would skyrocket into my life and challenge many of my beliefs about myself and the world. “
Dunham, who also dedicated the aforementioned The Zombies song to her current husband, also had some emotional words with him, making it clear that Attawalpa was here to stay: “Everyone who comes into contact with you, creatively, emotionally, accidentally , they’re lucky. But I am the luckiest of all, because that handkerchief is now in our shared dresser. Happy birthday, Lulu ”.
Despite Dunham’s break from work, she has always kept her social networks active (she has almost three million followers on Instagram) with data about her partner, despite having previously been skeptical about her relationship with men. “When I’m sick, my boyfriend makes delicious pasta, walks the dog, and makes up songs about him,” she wrote on Twitter a few months ago. “In January, all I tweeted about how men are basically human-shaped refried beans. What I’m saying now is never stop waiting for the miracle to happen, guys. “
The couple appeared in partnership on the red carpet at the Sundance Film Festival in London, which took place in August. Felber posed with Dunham at an event where they did not hesitate to show their affection for each other. This is the first time that the American has appeared publicly with someone after her last relationship, with the music producer and songwriter Jack Antonoff. In that case, everything ended up breaking down in January 2018, after sharing more than five years together.
The last time Dunham worked as an actress was on the big screen. Quentin Tarantino counted on her in 2019 for his award-winning Once upon a time in … Hollywood. Later, he turned away from the spotlight to devote himself to his personal life. Dunham recounted in the magazine Harper’s Magazine that she was struggling to have a biological child in December 2020. She admitted that there was a time when she became obsessed with being a mother, and looked for alternatives such as adoption, but that all her attempts to date were unsuccessful.
