Lena Dunham will host 'SNL'
Lena Dunham will host 'Saturday Night Live' ('SNL') for the first time next month.
The 'Girls' creator and star will make her debut on the New York-based comedy-sketch series, which has poked fun at her own hit show several times in the past, on March 8.
The 27-year-old actress shared the news, reported by Variety magazine, on Twitter on Tuesday (02.25.14), writing: "Thank you for the 'SNL' love. Can't wait to debut my character 'girl who googled serial killers all night & has lots to say!' "
Lena previously praised a parody of 'Girls' on the show in September, that featured then-host Tina Fey as an Albanian girl, Blerta, with a rubber hand and "Old Cow Disease," who joined the four young women trying to find their place in the world.
She called the sketch "a true honor," and also tweeted: "Very excited about the current line-up of 'SNL' ladies. They are funny like whoa."
The outspoken actress isn't likely to hold back during her upcoming appearance, as she recently revealed she thought she was "hallucinating" when she came across a photograph online of her boyfriend, fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff with his ex-girlfriend Scarlett Johansson.
She said: "I'm not jealous. It's very sweet. I love looking at pictures of them. She's beautiful, he's beautiful, but it was just so surreal to be looking through this blog that gives me so much pleasure and then there's my boyfriend. And I was like, 'My mind is going to explode.' I really did think I was hallucinating."
