Lena Dunham uses TV to cure her 'existential unrest'

Lena Dunham watches 'Please Like Me' to cure her "existential unrest".

The 29-year-old star - who's best known as the creator and writer of the HBO series 'Girls' - has revealed herself to be a huge fan of the Josh Thomas-created comedy drama, saying it helps to put her mind at ease.

She tweeted: "All I ever want is to be curled in bed watching Please Like Me. This show soothes my existential unrest. I love you."

Meanwhile, Lena revealed recently that she's started taking piano lessons, admitting she was inspired by her close friend Taylor Swift.

She said: "I don't have any secret talents. Any bit of talent I have I pour into my job. But we just got a piano in our house, so I'm going to take a lesson every two weeks.

"I will practice! The lesson is every other week."

Lena also admitted she wanted to develop another talent because her 'Girls' co-stars, Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke and Zosia Mamet, are all good at other things aside from acting.

She explained: "Allison's (secret talent) is singing, and we wrote it in. Zosia is very good at accents and impressions. Jem's an amazing twerker, like, Nicki Minaj 'Anaconda' video butt talent!"
