“I don’t know if you remember there was a sort of awkward photo taken of the two of us,” Dunham explained. “Well, the way the internet read it was, I had somehow physically accosted him causing him a great deal of stress… I would never force a kiss on Brad Pitt.

“I respect him far too much as an artist and a friend. Later that night because he knew I felt nervous, he took me into a room and we secretly ate pizza and I told him I like his ring and he gave it to me,” she added. “And I wear it and every time I wear it, something amazing happens.”

Dunham snagged an ensemble role in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”. She reflected on how the gentlemanly Pitt made her feel welcomed in a room filled to the brim with movie icons.

“He was doing a scene where he was parking a car and he’s supposed to get out and look around and he looked around and saw me at the edge of [the] frame and came over and picked me up and spun me around,” Dunham recalled.”It was like in one of those movies where the nerd shows up at the prom and the hottest guy at school is like, ‘Would you care to dance?'” she shared. “He’s a truly kind person who can read the room… He made me feel pretty cool.”
