"Girls" star Lena Dunham is very happy with her body, which perhaps you've noticed if you've ever tuned in to see almost all of it on her HBO series. And she tells Playboy she's so content that she wouldn't readily switch with a Victoria's Secret model.

The actress/writer/director was asked in the magazine's 20Q feature: If you woke up tomorrow in the body of a Victoria’s Secret model, what would you do for the rest of the day?

"I'd be really disoriented and wonder what had happened in the night. Which enemy had dragged me to the doctor? I don’t think I’d like it very much," Dunham said. "There would be all kinds of weird challenges to deal with that I don't have to deal with now. I don't want to go through life wondering if people are talking to me because I have a big rack.

"Not being the babest person in the world creates a nice barrier," Dunham continued. "The people who talk to you are the people who are interested in you. It must be a big burden in some ways to look that way and be in public. That said, I probably would want to see if I could get free food at restaurants. Then I’d call a doctor and see if she could return me to my former situation."

The Golden Globe-winning Dunham, who is currently dating guitarist Jack Antonoff of the band fun., also tells Playboy that "despite all the attention I’m getting lately, I definitely haven’t had any Ryan Goslings saying 'I love the way your mind works. Can I take you to dinner?'

"Maybe it would happen if I looked like a Victoria’s Secret model for one day. Now I understand how I could use that."

"Girls" airs Sunday nights on HBO.
