Modern Luxury Article & Behind the Scenes Video

Unlike Marnie, the snarky, entitled millennial with a penchant for eye rolling, who she’s played for five seasons on the zeitgeist-capturing HBO series Girls, Allison Williams, 27, is personable and charming. “People assume they’re going to hate me when they meet me, and I’m delighted to report that they don’t all hate me,” she says with a self-deprecating smile and gentle laugh. “Marnie’s cold, so they assume I’m going to judge them or talk sh*t about them.”

On the contrary, the New Canaan, Conn.-bred, Yale-educated daughter of newscaster Brian Williams is quick-witted, thoughtful, easy-going, gracious and kind. She’s a fixture on the red carpet, where she radiates in head-turners from the likes of Ralph Lauren, Dior, Chanel, Oscar de la Renta and Joseph Altuzarra (whose sheer dress she rocked as his date to the 2013 Met Gala). But when we meet at Fika, a coffee spot a few blocks from Williams’ Manhattan apartment, she’s dressed down in Pilates-ready athleticwear from Outdoor Voices, Lululemon and online retailer Carbon38, and a sweater from technical cashmere company Kit and Ace. “I am the paragon of high fashion today,” she jokes between sips of a double espresso with almond milk. “I’m wearing cartoonishly large black UGG boots, which I was recently paparazzi’ed in while taking my dog, Moxie, out first thing in the morning. That should be illegal. I was wearing pajama pants and [was] just so tired.”

Allison Williams was ‘a very different bride’ than her Girls character, Marnie: ‘Thank God’

Allison Williams was ‘a very different bride’ than her Girls character, Marnie: ‘Thank God’

When Allison Williams married CollegeHumor founder Ricky Van Veen last September, her friends and Girls costars — Lena Dunham, Zosia Mamet, and Jemima Kirke — were all in attendance. “It was really fun to have these girls there and to be actual supportive adults,” Williams tells EW. Her character, Marnie, gets married in the season opener of Girls on Feb. 21 — taking controlling bride to new hilarious heights — but Williams says her nuptials went very differently. “I was a very different bride than Marnie. Thank God. I think a lot of people showed up to my wedding expecting more Marnie than they got.” 

Dunham backs this up. “You were so chill, and I have to admit I was expecting you to be more … concerned about people’s whereabouts and activities. But you were really ‘live and let live’ about the whole thing.” The wedding took place on a ranch in Wyoming where the weekend activities included fly-fishing, horseback riding, and a ropes course. (Mamet opted for the horseback ride while Dunham and Kirke tackled the ropes course.) Tom Hanks officiated and Rita Wilson, who plays Marnie’s mother on the show, gave some free marital advice. Says Mamet, “She said my favorite thing about marriage that anyone has ever said, ever: ‘Same bathroom, different toilets.’

Williams laughs and says that Wilson also gave her the very same advice. “You need to be able to talk s— while looking in the mirror at each other, but you gotta poop in different places,” she says. “Let me tell you, Rita knows everything about everything.”
