On Friday, the Post‘s Page Six reported this salacious bit of gossip: “Show creator and star Lena Dunham and boyfriend Jack Antonoff sat at a small table alone while the rest of the cast and crew occupied two tables of six nearby.”
Ms. Dunham, though, set the record straight in a tweet this afternoon, explaining that her actual dinner companion was her father, the artist Carroll Dunham.
NY Post reported I was at a cozy dinner with my boyfriend when it was actually my dad. In related news, I killed myself and now I'm a ghost.—

Turns out she was just celebrating Father’s Day a few days early. Still, we’re sure Mr. Dunham, 63, was flattered to be mistaken for Mr. Antonoff, 29.
