The Girls actress, 35, posted a snap of herself relaxing at home in a dark green bikini on Friday.
In the caption, the star posted a quote from the late writer who regretted not wearing a swimsuit everyday at age 26.
‘I’ve always been a late bloomer’: Lena Dunham showed off her bikini body as she embraced advice from the late Nora Ephron on Friday
‘”Oh how I regret not having worn a bikini for the entire year I was twenty-six. If anyone young is reading this, go, right this minute, put on a bikini and don’t take it off until you’re thirty-four.” – Nora Ephron (I’m 35, but hey, I’ve always been a late bloomer).’
Despite being a self-proclaimed ‘late bloomer’, Lena has overall never been opposed to showing off her body on social media.
Over the summer, she posted a snap of herself wearing a red heart-print swimsuit as she gushed about her ‘kind’ fans.
The star beamed a smile as she made the most of the sweltering UK heatwave and slipped into a funky bathing suit for a garden photoshoot.

Not forgetting her accessories, Lena donned a bright selection of beaded necklaces as well as a gold bracelet.
Alongside her snaps, Lena penned: ‘This is a moment of gratitude- not for the sun (although it sure is sweet after all this London rain, and I thought rain was my thing…)

‘And not for this new bathing suit (although it’s pretty exciting when something is both covered in hearts AND accommodates the ample belly.)
‘No, this is gratitude for YOU. It’s easy to go down the rabbit hole, yelling about how the internet is mean and false and destroying our social fabric yadda yadda yadda, but this community, right here on the ‘gram, has been so consistently loving, kind and connected for such a long time.’
The star continued: ‘You’ve generously allowed me to share my tougher moments and my most sweet ones too and, most essentially for me since it is why I am haunting the planet like a ghost who can’t read the room, my art.

‘The fact that you’ve shown me love when I am, in fact, a stranger is a testament to the goodliness of human nature.
‘So this is just a note to say thank you, I’m with you and – to quote my love @taylour- remember to put your feet in the grass. I just did and it helped, with everything.
‘Then I saw a slug and came back on the deck but you know, points for trying? I’m giving you all points for trying this Monday.
