With her new movie “College Musical” set to hit theaters later this year, Allison Williams garnered herself a little added exposure by covering the August 2012 of Canada’s Fashion magazine.
The daughter of Jane Gillan Stoddard and NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams looks exquisite in Lanvin and Dior while posing for the Seiji Fujimori shot spread with the accompanying article finding her dish about everything from her famous family to saying no to nudity.
Highlights from Miss Williams’ interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Fashion!
On her ‘Girls’ character:
“She has this instinct of keeping everyone protected—she needs control and she needs to know that her friends are OK at all times. She’s like a sheep dog, trying to safely herd everyone around her. I was able to connect with that. On the other hand, she’s a deeply scared and insecure perfectionist, which is so not me. Marnie hasn’t yet realized that perfection isn’t a real, attainable goal.”
On meeting Meryl Streep:
“I got to know Meryl relatively well as we were around each other every day while I was an assistant on [Robert Altman’s] A Prairie Home Companion and I recently watched her give Hillary Clinton an award. She is so much more than an actor. I met her daughters too. They are the biggest testament to her. She has talented, smart, driven, normal children. The fact that one of the most famous actresses in the world can have a good family life means so much.”
On stripping down for the cameras:
“Right now, I don’t see myself ever doing nude scenes. Once you do them, you can’t take it back because of the way Google Images works. I also think that unfortunately nudity seems to overshadow some of the more brilliant things that are going on.”
On the possibility of joining the cast of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’:
“I wouldn’t take it. It is just too much for me but I applaud whatever actress steps up to the plate and I can’t wait to watch it.”
