Lena Dunham and longtime boyfriend Jack Antonoff split
American actress, writer, producer, and director Lena Dunham, best known as the creator and star of the HBO series Girls, is single again.
Dunham was in a relationship with Jack Antonoff, lead guitarist of the band Fun and the founder of Bleachers, from 2012 to December 2017. The couple announced that they broke up last month, after five years together.
“It was mutual,” an insider told E! News. “Jack and Lena were growing apart and it just made sense for them to end their relationship where it was. They want the best for each other no matter what. They are both moving on.”
Lena and Jack began dating in 2012, after meeting on a blind date, but was rarely seen together in public last year and the last time Dunham shared a photo of herself with Antonoff on social media was back in October.
Despite their lengthy relationship, the actress and the musician had never felt rushed to progress their romance and become engaged, and Lena previously said she was pleased at the lack of pressure the pair had put on their relationship.
