The Daily Grind Video

We’ve never seen her like this.

Allison Williams, also known as Marnie in the HBO hit GIRLS, opened up to Glamour Magazine for its 75th anniversary issue, revealing that she wants to eventually become a mom – preferably without having to juggle an acting career.

Allison can be seen in the spread decked out in metallics and iridescent pieces, including copper tops, accordion bottoms and silver and lace dresses. The outfits are classic and chic, which coincide perfectly with Allison’s real life style, which she describes as “simple.”

In the issue, the 25-year-old also gives advice on how to be a girl’s girl, talks working with Tina Fey, and more. Check out some excerpts below.

On acting and future plans:

“If you go into acting for love of the craft, and you dodge the fame aspect, it’s more sustainable. My goal is to create a career I can walk away from and become a mom. I’d love to be a mom—and not have to bring my kids into my trailer. That’s my long-term thinking. Or a balance [of both]. But you gotta call it on the fly to a certain extent.”

On “Girls” and the friendships between characters:

“I root for Hannah and Marnie more than I do for Hannah and [her boyfriend] Adam. Marnie needs a close female friend. Who doesn’t? I’d be nowhere without my girlfriends.” 

On her work with Tina Fey in “Baby Mama”:

“She’s humble and efficient. That exact combination was everything to me. Tina knows everyone’s name. It’s funny, [Girls creator and star] Lena Dunham is the same way. It’s hard to misbehave when your boss is so gracious.”

On her personal style:

“In college I wore a lot of layers, jewelry, and makeup. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve gotten more control of the simple. A typical look is pants and a blazer, or a dress. On the red carpet, it has to be comfortable.”
