Allison Williams Interview

Girls was certainly a groundbreaking show when it aired in 2012. How do you think it has influenced a generation of millennial women?

Allison: I hope they’ve learned from our mistakes. Sometimes you have to make the same mistake a couple of times before it actually gets through – Marnie is case in point.

Girls has shown that not everything has to be cutesy or set up; your apartment and friends don’t have to be perfect, you don’t have to be perfect and your sex doesn’t have to be unawkward and seamless. The show presents what real life looks like. We’re all doing our best, but mostly we’re failing.
When you watch the show, you get to take comfort in our tiny failures. With any luck, the non-aspirational aspects from [Girls] will have made people feel comfortable, no matter what their status quo.

Having worked on ‘Girls,’ what have you learned about beauty and women?

Allison: As a reaction to the relief people feel from Lena opening the door to unconventional, non-perfect bodies, I’ve learned how much people feel the need to look like a certain type of person.

Since no one has the perfect body, the show was made to show real bodies doing real things. We haven’t set an impossible standard people must hold themselves to.

However, this has meant that what guys have previously looked for from their TV shows – the more scintillating, almost borderline pornographic relief – hasn’t happened with Girls, which made a lot of them angry. But, for women, it was a relief.

I hope Girls has been incredibly soothing and helpful for viewers, showing completely different body types. Even between the four of us – Lena, Zosia, Jemima and I – none of us can wear the same clothes.

Our photoshoots are hysterical because you walk in and immediately know who’s rack is who’s, depending on the prints, proportions, designers and silhouettes. None of us are perfect or look the same moment to moment.

You say that but your character, Marnie, is the ultimate perfectionist. What would you say to women who feel crippled by the ideals of perfection?

Allison: It’s funny because when I was little, I use to make a list of things I should do when I get home from school. They included tasks such as ‘practice piano for at least one hour’, ‘have a little snack’, ‘feed Lucy’ and ‘do your homework best as can be’. The ‘best as can be’ part is something I knew then, but briefly forgot.

Later in life, that part has come back to me and helped me realise that perfect is irrelevant – strike it from your mind because it’s not even worth thinking about. Acknowledging there’s a ceiling is very important.

The ‘can be’ means both what you are capable of doing to something, and what it can be. There’s an inherent limit to everything.

A lot of women are feeling disillusioned with politics and the state of the world. What would you say to these women?
Allison: A lot of women are going to be marching on Saturday, but I think there’s always an opportunity to accept who we are in the small, daily, radical things we do just by being women in the world.

[We need to reject] the idea we are in any way inferior or less deserving than our than our male counterparts. It isn’t always about putting them down to elevate us, it’s about making sure that we’re on the same playing field.

The international women’s marches will be a day of catharsis and healing. It’s not an anti anything necessarily, more an assertion of self and an opportunity to feel the support that really only comes from a big gathering of people who feel the same way. It’s about solidarity.

How has Girls been able to successful straddle the concept of creating flawed yet likeable characters?

Allison: I give all that credit to the writers. Lena, in particular, captured a realism and familiarity for the characters. I don’t know anyone that’s simply a heroine or villain – it’s so much more complicated than that – and the women in Girls are emblematic of this. For example, Marnie makes maddening choices that drives me crazy because I just want to correct her wrongs or soften the blow in some way.

Even when I know it’s a bad idea to walk into Charlie’s office and sing Stronger, Marnie doesn’t and she thinks it’s the right thing to do, which weirdly gets her what she wants. She has balls I can’t imagine having. I know the way her mind works and it’s just a couple shades too selfish. I think she’ll grow out of it.

How does it feel now Girls is over?

Allison: It’s strange. It’s nice to be able to talk it through – it’s helping me process it. You finish wrapping and that’s emotional because you’re done playing someone for good. Then you promote the show and it comes out, which is moving because it’s the beginning of the end.
And, then the finale ends and that’s really the end. Then there’s award season which is usually the last go-around of everyone parading around as a cast and then it’s really over.

What do you think Marnie would be doing in 2030?

Allison: I can see her going into a very modern relationship like an incredibly devoted marriage to someone who is gay – it’s the only relationship I can see working for her.

They would both be allowed to do whatever they want to do for their sexual needs, they’d feel nourished by their relationship and would be completely devoted to each other.

They’d get everything they need but from a couple of different sources, eschewing the Swiss army knife idea that you need to find everything in one person.

I hope she’ll doing something that puts her intelligence first before anything else. I think she’s smart but isn’t focused on that yet and that’s okay, she’ll come into it eventually. Marnie’s got ideas, she’s a smart person.

Girls Season 6 premieres exclusively on NOW TV and Sky Atlantic on 13 February at 10pm, or binge on the complete S1-5 Box Set now.
