Hillary Clinton teams up with Lena Dunham, Amy Schumer for latest interview

Hillary Clinton probably won't be appearing on Girls anytime soon — she doesn't watch the show — but she did hang out with Lena Dunham for the director/actress' newest undertaking, the email newsletter Lenny Letter. In a video interview to be released in full on Tuesday, Clinton chats about her life in college and "the ambivalence she felt in her early 20s about her own life and career path," according to a Lenny Letter spokesperson, as reported by Politico. The Lenny Letter segment, which has already been taped, also includes comedy sketches shot at Clinton's campaign headquarters in Brooklyn — featuring comedian Amy Schumer.

A teaser clip of the interview shows Dunham asking Clinton if she considers herself to be a feminist (the obvious answer: yep). The two women seem like old friends on screen, with Clinton's communications aide, Kristina Shake, telling Politico, "Hillary was drawn to Lena's unique voice, dynamic talent, and strong commitment to women's rights. Hillary and Lena had a strong connection, which comes through in this intimate, engaging interview." Dunham, likewise, was an early celebrity endorser of Clinton.
