Allison Williams on Town and Country

Allison Williams, star of HBO’s Girls, looks flawless on the April cover of Town&Country, on newsstands nationwide March 12th. Dressed in the season’s most romantic gowns, Williams opens up about her childhood, success on her own terms, and even her notoriously conservative sense of style.

On knowing she wanted to act from a young age:

“My childhood was stamped with this one certainty, that I knew what I wanted to be, which I realize now was very unusual. Most of my friends are still figuring it out. I only knew one other kid like me; she wanted to be a singer, and in first grade we’d have sleepovers, and she dressed up like a Beatle and I dressed up like Marilyn Monroe.”

On feeling pressure to succeed on her own merits despite her famous father:

“It is apparent to anyone that there are fewer steps between me and Hollywood than there are for the average person. But at some point you are asked to stand and deliver, and people can be pretty ruthless in their judgment toward people like me… I operate with this sense of needing to live up to what I am asking of people. I am, by far, my own worst critic.”

On learning to accept her own imperfections:

“Something that’s been lovely about the last couple of years is that I’ve finally abandoned the pursuit of perfection, which I think I was pretty stubbornly holding on to, just always trying to be the best at everything I did. I grew up enough to realize that the people I respect aren’t perfectionists. And I was like, ‘Oh, that’s so much more perfect.’”

On her notoriously conservative sense of style:

“I have a goal, which is that I don’t ever want to look back on something I wore and think, ‘Oh my God, what was I thinking?’ That feeling is much scarier than looking back and thinking, ‘Oh, I took myself so seriously. I’m so buttoned up.’”
