ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) -- Lena Dunham has always been outspoken on the subject of women's reproductive rights.

Now, she's enlisting the help of her A-list pals to spread the word about Planned Parenthood Action Fund's Women Are Watching Campaign, an initiative aimed to encourage women to vote for politicians who support that cause.

"We hear a lot about how apathetic our millennial youth are, but that just hasn't been my experience. My friends, as well as the young women I met on my book tour who are friends now too, have so much joy, anger, hunger for change," the actress told Glamour magazine. "I want us to show up at the polls in record numbers, to show that we won’t stand for attacks on women and their rights, that we recognize our power to shape the future."

So, Dunham, 28, teamed up with Planned Parenthood to design a T-shirt that reads, "Lena [Hearts] Planned Parenthood," to promote the campaign. It's currently on sale for $25 online. The Not That Kind of Girl author has posted photos of her famous friends wearing it too. Here are a handful, below.

A&E Television(NEW YORK) — Duck Dynasty star Jep Robertson is out of the hospital after suffering a seizure earlier this month.

TMZ reports he was released on Monday, but will continue to take medication and may undergo further testing.

The website notes that doctors have yet to determine what brought on the seizure, which occurred while the reality star was deer hunting.

Robertson, 36, tweeted last weekend that he "about died" on Oct. 19 after suffering a seizure. He wrote, "I'm doing much better now. Thanks for all the prayers!"

Jason Kempin/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- American Horror Story fans got their first look Wednesday at Matt Bomer, who joins the fourth season of FX’s anthology series.

Bomer doesn’t make his debut until next Wednesday’s episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show, which premiered earlier this month. But Out magazine got an exclusive first peek at his character.

The 37-year-old actor strikes an all-American pose with slicked hair and a leather jacket for this season’s storyline, which is set in the 1950s and centers on a “troupe of curiosities.”

Creator Ryan Murphy, who worked with Bomer on HBOs The Normal Heart, told The Hollywood Reporter that something “horrible and dastardly” happens in Bomer’s episode.

Without giving away any details, Murphy said Bomer has a seven-page scene with Michael Chiklis that the director called “maybe one of the most disturbing things we’ve ever done and a true horror scene.”

Neil Patrick Harris is also joining the freak show. TVLine confirmed that the How I Met Your Mother alum will appear at the tail end of the season.

In addition, Harris’ real-life husband, David Burtka, is set to guest-star on the anthology hit, making this something of a family affair.

After Harris, a fan of the show, expressed his desire for a guest gig, Murphy has been busy working on something for him.

“He’s game; he had very specific ideas about what he wanted to do and I have specific ideas. We’re working on melding those,” Murphy told reporters earlier this month. “I’d love to see him and Jessica Lange go at it in a really fun way and Neil seems intrigued by that notion.”
