Check out quotes from celebrity, Allison Williams’ interview below, and pick up the March issue to read the full story!

 

Allison on her personal style…

“In college I wore a lot of layers, jewelry, and makeup. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve gotten more control of the simple. A typical look is pants and a blazer, or a dress. On the red carpet, it has to be comfortable.” 

 

Allison on acting and her plans for the future…

“If you go into acting for love of the craft, and you dodge the fame aspect, it’s more sustainable. My goal is to create a career I can walk away from and become a mom. I’d love to be a mom—and not have to bring my kids into my trailer. That’s my long-term thinking. Or a balance [of both]. But you gotta call it on the fly to a certain extent.”

Allison on working with Tina Fey on the set of Baby Mama…

“She’s humble and efficient. That exact combination was everything to me. Tina knows everyone’s name. It’s funny, [Girls creator and star] Lena Dunham is the same way. It’s hard to misbehave when your boss is so gracious.”

“I had to take some dresses to Tina for an event or something, and I was the messenger. Her costume designer was this guy named Tom Broecker, and I was going to his house. The whole way over, I was practicing how to introduce myself to [legendary NBC News anchor] Tom Brokaw. Like, ‘I’m Allison,’ or, ‘I’m Allison Williams—the daughter of [NBC Nightly News anchor] Brian Williams’? And then when I got there, Tom Broecker opened the door—who is still a very close friend of mine to this day. And is not, to be sure, Tom Brokaw.”

Allison on the friendship between her character, Marnie, and Hannah [Lena Dunham]…

“I root for Hannah and Marnie more than I do for Hannah and [her boyfriend] Adam. Marnie needs a close female friend. Who doesn’t? I’d be nowhere without my girlfriends.”
