Since the early days of "Girls," Lena Dunham has also become a successful author. She signed a $3.5 million deal with Random House to publish her first book in 2012. Two years later in September 2014, she published an essay collection, "Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She's Learned," which went to No. 2 on the New York Times Best Sellers list. She's been a member of Taylor Swift's squad and has also made an appearance on one of her favorite television shows, "Scandal." As for her personal life, Lena has been dating musician and producer Jack Antonoff since 2012. When the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage in June 2015, she commented that marriage between herself and Jack was a "definite maybe." Most recently, she's been heavily involved in influencing political issues, especially since campaigning for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential race.

After her character Jessa considered having an abortion, Jemima Kirke spoke publicly about how she had an abortion while in college in 2007. In April 2015, she was in a PSA for the Center for Reproductive Rights and spoke candidly about her experience. "We do have free choice and we are able to do what we want, but then there are these hoops we have to jump through to get [abortions]," she said. In January 2017, it was revealed that Jemima, who welcomed her second child, son Memphis, the same year "Girls" debuted, is divorcing her husband of seven years, former lawyer Michael Mosberg.
