When Lena Dunham stopped by Ellen  to tape today's episode, she made a pledge we've heard before, but it certainly bears repeating. She and Jack Antonoff are not getting married until marriage is legal for everyone in all 50 states.

"Well, it's something that…the idea of having a celebration that can't be fully shared among all the people in my life and all the people that we love just doesn't really feel like a celebration at all," Dunham told Ellen, who married Portia de Rossi in 2008, just before California's Prop 8 messed up that state's gay marriage ruling for a number of years. "So, until that's something that everyone can join into with no sense of being left out on any level — politically, emotionally — it's just not something that we're gonna do."

Dunham first made this pledge back in October on Howard Stern's show, citing the fact that her sister, Grace, is gay and still can't get married anywhere she wants to. Maybe you're thinking this is such a Brad and Angelina move, but let us remind you that the fight isn't over yet. Currently, marriage equality exists in 37 states, while other states' bans are still being brought to the Supreme Court

The Fun. guitarist and Girls creator have been dating for almost three years now, so naturally everyone is playing nudgy mom and asking her about getting hitched all the time lately. Clearly, they should be asking her more about her role as Kinky Sue on this week's Scandal, and what the heck acro-yoga is. Which, funny enough, is exactly what Ellen asked her.
