Lena Dunham blasts Odell Beckham Jr

Lena Dunham has accused Odell Beckham Jr of ignoring her in favour of his phone at this year's Met Gala.

The 30-year-old actress, who was sat next to the sports star at the glitzy event at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, claimed Odell ignored her because he did not consider her to be attractive.

Lena shared: "I was sitting next to Odell Beckham Jr., and it was so amazing because it was like he looked at me and he determined I was not the shape of a woman by his standards.

"He was like, 'That's a marshmallow. That's a child. That's a dog.' It wasn't mean - he just seemed confused."

Lena, who attended the Gala in a smart-looking tuxedo, said that Odell spent more time on his phone than he did talking to her.

She told the 'Lenny Letters' series: "The vibe was very much like, 'Do I want to f*** it? Is it wearing a ... yep, it's wearing a tuxedo. I'm going to go back to my cell phone.'

"It was like we were forced to be together, and he literally was scrolling Instagram rather than have to look at a woman in a bow tie.

"I was like, 'This should be called the Metropolitan Museum of Getting Rejected by Athletes.'"

Odell - who is one of the biggest-name players in the NFL in America - has been linked with numerous celebrities in recent months, including Khloe Kardashian and Demi Lovato.

Earlier this year, photographs emerged of Odell and Khloe supposedly flirting at a party hosted by rapper Drake.

Subsequently, however, Odell claimed the images almost destroyed a relationship he had with another woman.

At the time, he said: "Things go like that and then some other girl that I may have been talking to hears about it, and now it's more drama, more commotion in my life.

"And I'm sitting here trying to explain my situation to somebody, and it's not even a situation."
