On-screen nudity more uncomfortable for 'Girls' actress

LENA Dunham says she is becoming more modest with age and is no longer quite so relaxed about stripping off.

The 29-year-old actress previously had no qualms about stripping off for her role as Hannah Horvath in her TV series 'Girls' but admitted that as she has gotten older, she is less likely to ditch her clothes onscreen.

She told Refinery29: "When I first started the show, I wasn't in a relationship, no one knew who I was, I was just kind of living for the work. So when I took my clothes off on camera, it was just an extension of that.

"It didn't occur to me that in the first season, TV critics and people on the Internet would be seeing this. Now, for better or worse, when I take my clothes off, I already can hear the din of the reaction."

"Part of getting older for me has actually been feeling more modest."

However, Lena won't remain fully clothed in six and final series of 'Girls', which will air next year.

She said: "Unfortunately, Hannah Horvath doesn't always allow for that. I hope to reprise some of her nudity in this final season with vigour."
