Peter Pan's understudy, Allison Williams, is ready to smile widely down the aisle and marry College Humor co-founder Ricky Van Veen. "What about kids?" Glamour asks in their February cover story. Well. Before Allison Williams can become a mother, she must first unlock their treacherous secrets. And, goddammit, she will.
Williams tells Logan Hill, "Everyone says you can't plan for [having kids]. You're never ready. I have a lot of questions: How do I get to a place in my career where I can go be a mom for a little while and then come back and be a mom and an actress at the same time?"
Actually, that's only one question, but, according to this Glamour interview, Allison Williams asks it over, and over again, obsessively. "Every time I find a woman in film, an actress who has kids, I, like a sociopath, corner her and ask, 'How did it work?' she tells the magazine.
One working mother subjected to Williams' intense questioning was her Girls co-star Jemima Kirke. According to Williams, Kirke's advice was "Just get pregnant! Just have a baby"—a response not unlike that of an exasperated mother, driven to her wits' end by a child who asks questions constantly.
Allison Williams' response was characteristically "sociopathic":
"And I'm like, 'You are so much cooler than I am.'"
"The number of scripts that take my breath away are few and far between," she told the magazine. "There are some that are gorgeous, but I want to play all the male roles in them. I always ask, and I'm always told no."
