Lena Dunham Is Seeking $1 Million for Her New Advice Book

Girls creator and star Lena Dunham is pitching her first book, tentatively titled Not That Kind of Girl: Advice by Lena Dunham, to publishers, and she’s starting the bidding at $1 million for the rights. Slate reports that the book will be a collection of personal essays on sex, relationships, friendships, work, traveling, and obsessing over death, and that in the intro, Dunham makes some self-deprecating jokes about whether her advice is worthwhile (even though she's asking for $1 million for it). I'm conflicted about which outdated "one million dollars" movie reference to close this post with. Should I compare Dunham to Austin Powers villain Dr. Evil or work the book title into that Justin Timberlake "A million dollars isn't cool" quote from The Social Network? Sound off in the comments section!

    She should publish it as Hannah Horvath; that sounds like the book she's always pretending to work on.

    And the sum of her advice is what, exactly? Be born into a wealthy family?
