In with Taylor, apathetic about the squad.
Dunham and Swift’s friendship is air-tight. In fact, Dunham looks to Swift as a role model. In an interview with Rolling Stone
, Dunham remarked, “Watching the way that [Swift] understands the vicissitudes of the cycle, and she just keeps making her work — that’s just really impressive to me. That’s how I hope to live my life, which is not as a slave to public opinion, but just as somebody who continues to make things. She’s truly just an artist who has to make things to survive.”
In addition to Dunham wanting to emulate Swift, there’s also a family connection: Swift collaborated with Dunham’s boyfriend
, Jack Antonoff, on her album 1989
That said, those big group hangouts aren’t really Dunham’s thing. In February 2017, Dunham told Howard Stern
, “I'm more of a one-on-one hanger. A big group hang is not my specialty,” referring specifically to Swift's squad.
