Why Dunham Thanked Lowe: An “Inside” Joke

But the reason had nothing to do with some moral support the actor gave the “Girls” creator; rather, it had to do with a very infamous slight he received from then-wife Hilary Swank when she won an Oscar in 2000.

Lowe got the joke, however, and took to Twitter to chime in after Dunham had accepted her award.
