Lena Dunham hit on by Lenny Dykstra after admitting baseballers get her going
Lena Dunham and ex-baseball player Lenny Dykstra exchanged flirtations on Twitter on Thursday night (07Sep17).
Lena Dunham was hit on by former New York Mets player Lenny Dykstra after admitting on Twitter that baseball stars arouse her.
The 31-year-old actress, who is in a relationship with musician Jack Antonoff, seems to make the revelation out of nowhere when she tweeted on Thursday night (07Sep17): "I'm horny for baseball players! Wow!"
Sportsman Dykstra was quick to respond to the tweet, replying: "DM me".
Dykstra, 54, is a former Major League Baseball center fielder who played for the New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies. He also earned himself a reputation as something of a bad boy during his time in the sports industry, with his most recent scandal coming when he allegedly trashed a hotel room and tried to make off with the bedsheets, towels and even the receptionist's sunglasses.
His response to Dunham's tweet caused a sensation among fans, who were quick to urge the duo to get together. Dykstra retweeted hordes of messages from fans encouraging a relationship, with one sharing a snap of Marilyn Monroe and her baseball playing ex-husband Joe DiMaggio and writing: "Finally, a return to the glamour of baseball + Hollywood's power couples."
His retweeting also caught the attention of Dunham, whose Twitter handle was mentioned in the majority of the messages.
"You guys I'm being simultaneously trolled & seduced by @LennyDykstra this day has gotten really f**king weird," she tweeted.
As Thursday night drew to a close, the actress commented: "Excited about my new stalker @LennyDykstra! Unfortunately he seems to have underestimated my powers. Nite (sic) baseball fans, what a wild ride."
Clearly unwilling to let the flirtation go, Dykstra replied: "If you can't get to sleep after all this excitement, I recommend a cold shower."
But the ever cutting Dunham hit back: "I'm already asleep, grandpa", complete with an old man emoji.
