Lena Dunham & Jack Antonoff Break Up After Five Years Together

Dunham's rep confirmed to The Times on Tuesday that the outspoken actress and the Grammy-nominated musician's "breakup was amicable", but gave no word on when the couple parted ways.

The group photo had first been posted by Thor: Ragnarok actress Tessa Thompson, who eventually deleted it after backlash.

"I support this initiative and the fight for gender justice and am really glad that the movement is growing", they wrote.

She was referring to a comment she made on Dunham's post about Time's Up, which accused her of riding on the coattails of the women who had spent "countless hours" launching the campaign. Would greatly appreciate your thoughts on this as it gravely discredits your efforts to include Lena without holding her accountable. And one of those people, Thompson said, was not Lena Dunham.

Dunham's name also cropped up in the headlines this week after Tessa Thompson, who attended a Time's Up meeting with Dunham ahead of the Golden Globes, called the actress' appearance a "surprise" and seemed to criticize her lack of involvement with the organization.

Thompson went on to acknowledge the commenter, saying that the current "time of reckoning" in Hollywood beckons a learning process. And for many, a re-education.

Dunham responded to the critique with this statement to IndieWire: "I was honored to be invited to the meeting by a close friend and to observe the work that these wonderful women have been doing the past few months". I'm afraid it's too nuanced a conversation to have on this platform. "To those struggling with anxiety, OCD, depression: I know it's mad annoying when people tell you to exercise, and it took me about 16 medicated years to listen".

"Is it appropriate to have Lena Dunham there when it was literally just a few weeks ago she said a young black woman lied about being raped by her employee/friend?" one person asked in the comments.

It looks like that's exactly what Thompson is doing.

"I, in no way, want to diminish Lena Dunham and her work, her voice, and her importance", she continued.

"Here is the picture that my ❤️ @americaferrera insisted on taking so we'd have evidence that this is how we dressed for a nice dinner", she captioned a photo of the two clad in coordinating comfy clothes. "I feel a responsibility to women that have sometimes felt ignored, dismissed, and underrepresented". They are my beacons.

Dunham is criticized for problematic comments just as often as she's lauded for feminist values. "It's perhaps more complex than that", she wrote on Twitter.
