Lena Dunham is a guest on Late Night with Seth Meyers

Girls creator and star Lena Dunham was a guest on Late Night With Seth Meyers. Lena had a run in with the TSA when she was flying back to her alma mater, Oberlin College. Lena's friend had given out self defense keychains in the shape of a cat. The cat's ears were sharp and could be used to defend against an attacker. Not thinking about the security at the airport, Lena threw the keychain in her bag. The TSA pulled her aside for questioning and summoned law enforcement. The detained her for 45 minutes and she was crying, but they did let her go eventually. Lena said for the first time she hoped someone who was a fan of the show might see her predicament and yell out that they loved the show, just so the TSA would know she was an actress and was not dangerous. The TSA eventually confiscated her dangerous kitty keychain, but she did miss her flight. Lena is hilarious and we can't wait till she hosts Saturday Night Live next weekend. Take a look:
