Pick a side! Anne Hathaway and Seth MacFarlane have their fair share of fans and haters following Sunday's Oscars, and Girls creator Lena Dunham knows exactly where she stands.

The outspoken HBO star, 26, shared her thoughts on both Hathaway and MacFarlane's controversies following the Academy Awards on Feb. 24 on Twitter Tuesday.

"Ladies: Anne Hathaway is a feminist and she has amazing teeth," she tweeted. "Let's save our bad attitudes for the ones who aren't advancing the cause."

After getting some haters of her own, Dunham clarified, "Hey ragers. 'The ones who aren't advancing the cause' I mentioned aren't always, or mostly, women. Case in point: I saw your boobs," she said, referencing Oscar host MacFarlane's song, "We Saw Your Boobs."

Les Miserables star Hathaway, 30, was criticized for her emotional acceptance speeches, and also gained more detractors after making a last-minute switch on her Oscar gown. Oscar host MacFarlane, 30, on the other hand, received backlash from some of his controversial jokes during the show, including the opening "boobs" number.

A Twitter user replied to Dunham's tweet by saying, "Seth MacFarlane's genius is based around satirizing things that Americans glorify . . . he's talented, and so are you. Play nice."

But Dunham, who frequently bares her breasts on her Girls show, didn't engage in a further debate. She tweeted, "Now I've said something murky about women's lib and will return to eating edamame/thinking about moving to Austin like I always do!"
