14. Lena Dunham – Sexually Abused Her Younger Sister
Lena Dunham is not the most well-known actress out there, but that did not stop her memoir, Not That Kind of Girl, from drumming up all kinds of controversy. In the book, Dunham admits to childhood sexual experimentation with her sister, Grace, who is six years younger than Lena.
A passage in the book talks about “Lena Dunham playing with her sister’s vagina when Dunham was seven and her sister was one year old. She also writes about bribing her sister with candy so that she could kiss her on the lips and masturbating in bed next to her. Their mother was aware of at least some of the behavior, but apparently didn’t think much of it.”
In response to the controversy, Lena stated, “I can spell it out really clearly… I don’t care what conservative white men think about me.”
