Who’s excited for season 4 of ‘Girls’!? I am VERY excited, to say the least! I hope this year is more…. funny…. but I’ll watch it anyway.
‘Girls’ actress Allison Williams landed the February 2015 cover of Glamour Magazine, and she’s never looked better! The 26-year-old opens up about her upcoming wedding to fiance and College Humor co-founder Ricky Van Veen (the two have been engaged since February 2014).
Allison told Glamour that she’s planning ahead for her future.
“I have a lot of questions: How do I get to a place in my career where I can go be a mom for a little while, and then come back and be a mom and an actress at the same time?” the 26-year-old TV star wonders.
Who gives her advice? “Every time I find a woman in film, an actress who has kids, I, like a sociopath, corner her and ask, ‘How did it work?’ Everyone says, ‘Don’t think so much.’ [Jemima Kirke], from Girls, is always saying, ‘Just get pregnant! Just have a baby.’ And I’m like, ‘You are so much cooler than I am.’ I love what I do, but I have no doubt that when I start my family, that’s life. This is my job, but that’s life.”
For now, Williams focused on playing Marnie on HBO’s Girls, which returns for its fourth season Sunday. She’ll star in the series for “as long as they’ll have me,” she says. “I would never ever get sick of playing her, because there is no sense of ‘Oh, I’ve done that already.’ It’s all new—new scenarios, new feelings.”
Williams has guest-starred on FOX’s The Mindy Project and played the titular role in NBC’s Peter Pan Live!, but she has yet to appear in a movie. Of course, that’s also on her to-do list. “The number of scripts that take my breath away are few and far between,” she explains to Glamour. “There are some that are gorgeous, but I want to play all the male roles in them. I always ask, and I’m always told no.”
Finding the right roles—on TV, on film and on stage—is important to the relative newcomer. “I have vague EGOT goals. Who doesn’t?” she asks. “I have zero of those so far, so I have a lot of work to do.”
Focusing on achieving her career goals has helped Williams to ignore her hater, whose criticisms aren’t limited to her acting abilities. What’s her biggest gripe? “Being analyzed about my weight drives me crazy. It’s easier to say, ‘Oh, she must be anorexic and depriving herself,’ than it is to say, ‘She might have a fast metabolism,'” she says. “I deprive myself nothing. But that’s an annoying thing to say, right?”
