Lena Dunham celebrated her 33rd birthday on Monday, surrounded by her closest friends and family. On her special day, the Girls star hosted a Spring fundraiser for Peggy Albrecht Friendly House, the first recovery home for women in the United States. It’s a cause that is close to the actress' heart, after celebrating a year of sobriety in April. 

Lena shared an Instagram post following the event, showing off to her fans a collection of snaps from the special day. But the stand-out snap of the gallery was the first one, which saw the actress alongside Once Upon a Time in Hollywood co-star Brad Pitt. In the photograph, Brad can be seen smiling broadly whilst wearing a grey T-shirt layered over a white long-sleeved shirt and black jeans. Lena, on the other hand, looked stunning in a striped dress. The 55-year-old's rare appearance didn’t go unnoticed, with the birthday girl appearing extremely excited by his attendance.

The American Horror Story star captioned the collection: "I used to think there was something a bit unseemly about an adult leaning into their birthday, until I realised I was actually just jealous of the confidence and self-love it takes to say, ‘it’s my day, people!’ I often felt I was making up for some original sin and that the nicest thing I could do for others on my birthday was make myself as unobtrusive as possible (it never worked and I usually either barfed or cried.) But this year is different. This year I’m... wait for it... happy. And so grateful for where I am, who I am, and everyone who has helped me on my journey to health & sobriety. 32 was good to me, and for 33 I wanted to say a big old thank you."
