Taylor Swift’s good pal, and* Bad Blood* co-star, Lena Dunham has admitted she feels “chubby” when she hangs out with Tay-Tay and her model friends.

The Girls creator admitted feeling very self-conscious after taking to the stage alongside top models Lily Aldridge and Gigi Hadid, as well as actress Hailee Steinfeld during Taylor’s concert at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey last Friday night.


Speaking at the Film Society of Lincoln Centre in New York City about the experience, the 29-year-old Golden Globe-winner said: "I was so thrilled to support my friend and so displeased to learn about the truth of my own height.

"I've been feeling pretty tall, feeling pretty sturdy, and it was amazing to me, like, 'Oh, I'm not tall, I'm chubby.' It's different."

Lena doesn't usually "feel so strange" while spending time with the leggy beauties in private, according to E! News.

She added: "But I mean, on most days, I feel really great and fine about my body, but I don't think standing next to, like, three supermodels or so is anything even the most confident woman needs to do.

"When I socialise with those women, which I've done a little bit, because they're good friends of Taylor's, who is a good friend of mine, I don't feel so strange. But the minute I caught sight of myself in the Jumbotron, I knew something was very wrong."

We feel your pain, Lena.
