Jack Antonoff, lead guitarist of indie rock band Fun revealed that he and girlfriend Lena Dunham quickly hit it off when they began dating in 2012 because instead of partying, they'd rather have dinner parties and relaxing spa days.

"Here's a perfect story for what we're like ... one time we were at a dinner party where everyone was over 60 and, before we knew it, we realised that everyone at the table had gone outside to smoke pot and they didn't invite us. That basically says it all," the 30-year-old musician said.

He and the Girls star met on a blind date, which was set up by his friend and comedian Mike Birbiglia, where he felt compelled to share details of his life, including a past romance with Scarlett Johansson back in high school. Jack said "I told Lena everything about my whole life, because when you really like someone, you want them to know everything about you."

He also admitted that he'd like to become a father, now that he and Lena are settled down in New York. "It just seems like the most fun thing in the world," he said. "I've never met people who have kids who haven't looked me in the eye and been like, 'It's the greatest thing that's ever happened.'"
