Lena’s emotional message about her decision to undergo the hysterectomy at the age of 31 has touched many hearts including her ex, Jack Antonoff.
Lena Dunham’s former beau has taken to Twitter for praising her ex’s harrowing account, appeared in the Vogue’s March issue and was published on Wednesday online. He wrote, “Beautiful piece.” The former “Girls” star has chronicled the process from beginning to end in her essay, explaining that she has made the decision in the hope of ending her crippling endometriosis-related pain. She has also touched on how it has affected her relationship with her 33-year-old music producer beau Jack.
After she has desperately tried managing a “new level of pain” from August to November, she has said that she finally checked her into the hospital as well as refused to leave “until they stop this pain or take my uterus.” Although Jack was supportive, Lena has said that the situation wasn’t easy for the pair. She wrote that her beautiful partner, who has seen her through so much pain with compassion and care, has to be away for work and she can feel them growing slowly apart since life is so determined to display its full complexity right now.
Lena has said that she is surly and distant and she offers nothing and he reminds her again and again that she is still a woman and alive. Lena continued, “But I also know that soon — for so many reasons that have nothing to do with my uterus — we’ll slip away from each other and I will face everything I am losing in impossibly tiny step.” In January, reps of the couple have confirmed to PEOPLE that the couple got split after five years of togetherness, with an insider sharing that their breakup was “amicable.” During a live stream on Instagram, Lena has briefly addressed her breakup, revealing that she was still wearing a ring that her former beau Jack had given her.
