Jemima married Michael, a former lawyer, in 2009 and they have two children together; their daughter Rafaella Isreal, and son Memphis.

Last February, the Girls actress opened up to The Telegraph and said she met her husband while in rehab.

We hope the split is amicable and their children remain in a loving environment throughout the break-up.


At this point everyone has heard that introducing some cardio exercises to your fitness routine has plenty of benefits.

However, we have also heard that it is not the only way to kick start a weight-loss programme. In fact, many in the fitness industry are encouraging us to step away from the treadmill. 

Including cardio in your routine increases heart health and helps to burn fat, but it might not be setting our metabolisms alight as we had hoped.

Too much cardio can raise your stress levels, and when your cortisol hormone levels are high, you won’t be able to lose the weight you want to. 

Cadence Dubus, a NYC based personal trainer to celebs like the cast Girls explains:

"If you look at the New York Marathon, the majority of the people jogging by are chubby, and most of them have probably been logging 12, 15, or 20 miles a week."

This can be attribute to how the calories you burn increase as you move from a resting level of metabolism to an exercising rate of metabolism. So, going from a steady walk to a run for example.

This type of exercise can boost your metabolism for hours even after you have stopped exercising.

So, if you’re spending hours and hours a week on the treadmill sweating it out at a steady jog, then your metabolism will also stay at a steady rate.

Incorporating sprint intervals into your cardio routine can help avoid this. 

Strength training is also recommended. Cadence adds that if you are exercising with body fat in mind, to remember that "building muscle is where you burn calories," says Dubus.

So if you’re looking for a more ‘toned’ physique, your treadmill addiction is probably not helping. 



Lena Dunham likes to share all with her Instagram fans and her most recent snaps were no exception.

The Girls creator revealed that her new rescue dog, Lamby got a little aggressive with her and decided to bite her in the behind.

The 28-year-old went onto to share a snap of her blood stained underwear, “Hopeless Romantic”.

Lena mentioned her friend and fellow co-star, Jemima Kirke was there to witness the event.

“My dog bit me on the ass and Jemima Kirke captured the image of a life time.”

Dunham then went onto share a second snap of her pup who she said was acting like the incident never happened.

Lena went on to later tweet about what occurred and said Lamby had bitten her twice “in response to me sobbing”.
