Her appearance comes over a week after Lena shut down a bizarre rumor that she has been secretly feuding with director/actress Melissa Joan Hart.
‘I’m not in a feud with anyone. I literally live in London and barely leave my home,’ the Girls star, 36, told the Who Weekly? podcast last month.
‘I’ve never met Melissa Joan Hart, never been in a room with her, never seen her. I did see all of Clarissa Explains It All and all of Sabrina the Teenage Witch.’

She continued: ‘I only found out about this feud because Melissa Joan Hart said how much she was hearing about this feud, but let’s just say I didn’t hear about this feud until Melissa Joan Hart talked about how much she was hearing about this feud, do you know what I mean?’
The issue all began when celebrity gossip account DeuxMoi posted a blind item claiming that Melissa ‘has it out’ for Lena.
It read: ‘They’ve been frenemies for a long time (Lena’s dad was friends with the creator of Clarissa Explains It All). The dinner party fight about child drag queens was just one piece of the puzzle.’
Lena’s father is artist Carroll Dunham and the creator of Clarissa Explains It All – which Melissa was the lead in from 1991 to 1994 – was Mitchell Kriegman.
The post continued: ‘Melissa has a knack for alienating people in her life-they disappear like magic. Her views are controversial (and chaotic) and she gets really argumentative about them. I didn’t see the Instagram story but it’s common knowledge in both of their circles that they’ve been beefing for a while.’

Another tipster sent in a blind item that they had witnessed Anjelica Huston slamming Lena at a party after working on a Lifetime movie with Melissa.
Lena did confirm that her father and Kriegman ‘did play doubles tennis’ but she has never personally met him.
‘[Kriegman] gave me a Clarissa Explains It All T-shirt when I was 7, and also a denim jacket. It was very cool for me because I wasn’t a super popular child and it was exclusive cast gear,’ she explained during the podcast.
‘That being said, I never met Mitchell Kriegman, although I’m a fan and appreciate his support.’
As for the alleged Anjelica Huston connection, Lena simply stated that she ‘[doesn’t] think I’ve ever met’ the 71-year-old Addams Family star.
All in all, Lena was amazed by the way the rumor swiftly developed online and how no legitimate connections between the parties mentioned even exist.
‘Having never met any of the people involved in this story, and having barely exited my home since the year 2018, it was definitely a surprise, and I’m not gonna say it didn’t tickle me,’ she said.
‘I am a consumer of fake gossip, so it’s always interesting to me to see how the sausage gets made and then to hear you guys eat the sausage, spit it back out, and make something new with it.’
No feuds: ‘I’m not in a feud with anyone. I literally live in London and barely leave my home,’ the Girls star, 36, told the Who Weekly? podcast Tuesday; Lena seen in October
