Lena Dunham Finds It Easier for Her to Find Date When She's Drunk

The 'Girls' star reveals in a British television interview with Jonathan Ross that it's 'more challenging' for her to find a date after she gave up drinking.

AceShowbiz - Lena Dunham has admitted she's struggling to land herself dates in the U.K. while she's sober and conducting herself with "dignity and grace."

The 33-year-old actress hails from New York, but recently temporarily relocated to Wales to shoot new HBO series "Industry". Lena opened up about life in Wales and how it's affecting her love life during an appearance on "The Jonathan Ross Show", in which she revealed things have gone slightly downhill in that department since she gave up drinking.

"Here's the thing that I'm finding about dating here. I love being in England, love the culture, love the people," she began. "I'm sober, it's a choice, and I would say sober dating in the UK is a roughie."

"It was easy to find guys when I would drink because I would drink a lot, go over to their house, throw up and then they would have to let me stay.. But in Wales when I was being a polite woman of dignity and grace, much more challenging."

The "Girls" star even turned to the audience on the programme, which will air on Saturday night, December 7, asking them, "If anyone in the audience knows of a nice, sober, respectable but a little bit freaky man who would like to take me to dinner, I'm open."

Lena also revealed that filming in the "romantic" country had helped her get over the end of her six-year relationship with Jack Antonoff, adding, "It was so cosy. There were sheep all around us. I'm from New York City… Suddenly I'm in Wales sitting in a turret in a little castle like I'm freaking Charlotte Bronte."

"The whole thing was so romantic. I was recovering from a broken heart. That's where you go… I was healing."
