Lena Dunham (R) says her bodega man thinks she’s one of the stars of “2 Broke Girls.”

Tip that man, Lena!

“Girls” creator and star Lena Dunham says she’s not going to correct her bodega man on this one.

On Wednesday morning she tweeted at Jewish “2 Broke Girls” star Kat Dennings and her the show’s co-star, Beth Behrs, that her local bodega man in New York has confused for one of the two beauties.

“I’m not correcting him,” she wrote.

Fans wanted to know which one but Dunham hasn’t said.

One advised her to just “roll with it.”

Actor Jon Cryer snarked: “The guy at my auto body shop thinks I’m the guy from ‘Three Men and a Baby’.” Which he is.
