Lena Dunham has never been shy about exposing her body, but she’s finally actually loving it now.

The Girls star took to Instagram to post a nude photo of herself, with carefully placed emojis to keep it classy. She explained that she is finally truly comfortable with the skin she’s in. She wrote:

“I spent so many years loving my body but thinking it wasn’t lovable by others ― its sole purpose was to be fodder for jokes. I performed the insult so no one else could. I don’t regret any of it ― that’s my art and that was my truth ― but now, at age 31, having been through hell and back with my health and other people’s perceptions of my physicality, I feel deeply comfortable with the idea that this pear-shaped pot of honey is equally good for making people laugh and laying out like a Suicide Girl circa 2004. Love it all.”

The actress had to cancel her Lenny Letter tour last month due to endometriosis. She has battled the condition for a while, and revealed that she had been in the “greatest amount of physical pain” she had ever felt. The experience has clearly made her appreciate her body on a whole new level.

Yes, Lena!
