“Fashion is fun but sometimes I’d rather not spend 3 hours and lots of cash I could give to charity or spend on books and food to get ready to go out,” she commented on Instagram.

In what we're sure was intended as Perez Hilton's version of a compliment (a backhanded one, at least), the Hollywood gossip columnist posted a photo of black-clad Lena Dunham at Saturday's Human Rights Campaign Los Angeles Gala with the caption, “Nice to see her trying!” The Girls creator/star was at the event to present her bestie America Ferrera with the Ally for Equality Award.

Just one day earlier, Hilton had posted another photo of Dunham appearing at a 92Y Conversation with author Ariel Levy in which he invited followers to “Fill in the blank” about Dunham's baby pink ensemble. (Many of the commenters bashed the 30-year-old's appearance.)

The actress, however, was not one to sit back while her “effort” was put up for public scrutiny. “I try at a lot of things,” she wrote in the comments of Hilton's most recent post. “Mostly I try at being a writer, director, actor, activist, friend, sibling, partner, godmother…Fashion is fun but sometimes I'd rather not spend 3 hours and lots of cash I could give to charity or spend on books and food to get ready to go out.”

She continued, “There's a lotta different ways to be a public figure and I think there's room for us to occasionally show up in public like normal people do. When I look at that picture you subjected to 'caption this' criticism, I see a day well-spent writing, reading, having tea with a friend. It's unfortunate that the days you approve of most are the ones where I'm spending the least time on what really matters. With love, Lena.”

For his part, Hilton posted a screengrab of Dunham's comment, which he captioned, “Well-said!” along with a link back to his site, of course.

During the promotional tour for the final season of Girls, Dunham's appearance has been more scrutinized than ever, given her recent weight loss. “I feel I've made it pretty clear over the years that I don't give even the tiniest of shits what anyone else feels about my body,” she wrote on her own Instagram in response to the before/after photos being posted online.

“I've gone on red carpets in couture as a size 14. I've done sex scenes days after surgery, mottled with scars. I've accepted that my body is an ever changing organism, not a fixed entity — what goes up must come down and vice versa.” Dunham went on to describe that her body transformation is the result of a diet and exercise change related to her management of the pain caused by her endometriosis.

“I refuse to celebrate these bullshit before-and-after pictures. Don't we have infinitely more pressing news to attend to? So much love to all my web friends who demand that life be more than a daily weigh in, who know their merit has nothing to do with their size, who fight to be seen and heard and accepted.”
