Allison Williams Pretties Up Town&Country April 2013
Known as the daughter of NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams, the 25-year-old actress proved she's making a name for herself by slipping into a slew of romantic dresses for the Blossom Berkofsky spread before opening up about everything from giving up perfection to following her childhood dreams.
Highlights from Miss Williams' interview are as follows. For more, be sure to check out Town&Country!
On accepting her 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 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.’”
On following her childhood dreams:
“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.”
