Lena DunhamLena Dunham doesn't want to act any more.

The Girls star, who also created the TV show, admits she doesn't love performing as much as she does standing behind the camera and watching other people take to the set. "I don't know if I'm going to want to act any more. I'm always relieved on the days I don't have to. I'd rather give parts to other women than be the woman having the parts," she said.

Meanwhile, the 27-year-old actress - who plays unlucky in love aspiring writer Hannah Horvath in the HBO comedy - admits her relationship with boyfriend Jack Antonoff, whom she started dating shortly after Girls became popular, works really well because he accepted her "baggage." She explained in the April edition of Glamour, "'The dialogue around the show already existed, so it was sort of clear to him what the baggage of dating me was going to be. And I remember talking with him on our first date and him being like, 'God, all the articles about your nudity on the show are such b******t.' It's funny, because in some ways that's the conversation we still have when I'm upset [about the stuff I read]."
