Lena Dunham


“Girls” creator and star Lena Dunham has been hospitalized Saturday to undergo surgery for a ruptured ovarian cyst, her representative said.

“Lena Dunham has been very public with her personal bouts with endometriosis. This morning, she suffered from an ovarian cyst rupture and has been taken to the hospital, ” her spokesperson, Cindi Berger, told People in a statement. “Lena will be undergoing surgery at an undisclosed hospital. We thank you for you understanding and hope that Lena’s privacy will be respected.”

It was not disclosed where the creator and star of the HBO TV comedy-drama “Girls” would have the operation. The Associated Press reported Dunham, 29, has endometriosis, a painful disease in which tissue that normally grows inside the uterus instead grows outside of it.

Dunham said in a Facebook post last month that she was “going through a rough patch with the illness, ” NBC News reported.

“So many women with this disease literally don’t have the option of time off and I won’t take it for granted, ” Dunham said at the time.

It wasn’t clear how long she would be hospitalized.
