Lena Dunham appeared on “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon, obviously making him uncomfortable when she shared that her mother always thought she would marry him.
Fallon seemed adorably embarrassed by her comments. Lena and Jimmy also played the game “Pyramid” against the host.
Lena has previously said she had a crush on Jimmy Fallon and the two bonded over their similar experiences working at a movie rental chain.
Lena and Jimmy discussed both working for movie stores and their love of the Reese Witherspoon movie “The Man in the Moon”.
Lena and Hugh played against Jimmy and Questlove as the two teams attempted to guess a series of words or phrases based on descriptions given to them by their teammates.
The two teams ended up in a tie.
Dunham confessed, “I have a great boyfriend, but my mom said recently ‘I always thought you would marry Jimmy Fallon'”.
You could see Fallon squirm as she added, “She said it like we had a previous relationship, like you were my first boyfriend but things didn’t work out and she thought we would get back together. Not like I have 50 magazine covers of you in my bathroom.”
Jimmy seemed at a loss for words, before Lena added, “I knew this would make you embarrassed”.
“A little embarrassed,” Fallon said before changing the subject. He said, “Uh, let’s talk about girls. I mean the show, Girls.”
