Lena is a warts-and-all experiment that constantly has her art imitating her life (imitating her art). Sure, the nudity conversation is exhausted, with her dark and expansive tattoos and frank conversations about narcissism. And she defends herself vehemently.

“She is unflinchingly, unnervingly honest. She exposes, beneath all that bare skin, a multitude of shortcomings: acute self-involvement, obsessive-compulsive behavior, overeating, oversharing,” Danes wrote.
“Lena’s unique lack of vanity or shame allows us to consider that we may also be able to accept and express ourselves fully … it turns out that girls don’t just want to have fun. They also want to be known for who they really are.”
