Lena Dunham Opens Up On Howard Stern Show About OCD, New Memoir

Lena Dunham did acid when she was two.

"She's exaggerating, she had acid when she was five, I read the book," Howard Stern said, Wednesday morning, when Lena Dunham appeared on his show to discuss her new memoir, Not That Kind Of Girl.

In her new book, Lena opens up with stories about everything from when she was date raped in college to her struggles with bulimia and OCD.

Stern also struggled with OCD. "I don't think I ever had it until after I did acid in college," he said.

"Everything about it is uncomfortable," Dunham said about living with OCD."We had guests at my parents house once, and I decided I had to go in to the room and stare at each of their tooth brushes until I remembered exactly what both of them looked like, and if I thought I didn't remember what both of them looked like, I had to go back in because, what if later there was situation where I had to remember what their tooth brushes looked like?"

She confesses to having moments in her life where it was crippling. "You're completely aware of how absurd you're being in the moment. There's none of the comforts of psychosis."

While Dunham is usually insufferable, she dropped a few insightful, entertaining one-liners on the show that can only be telling of the merit of her memoir:

"I said he looked like a middle-aged lesbian," Dunham said about who she lost her virginity to; "Andy Kaufman taught my grandmother how to meditate, and put crystals on her stomach.";"When I grow up, I want to be Howard Stern.

And Robin."

"You tell the truth, and you don't hold back," Stern said.
