Allison Williams’ Dad Watched Her Get Her Ass Eaten, Was Cool About It
When I am faced with a professional crisis, I turn to my dad, who usually has solid advice and provides me with solutions I hadn’t though of before. Allison Williams, it seems, also does the same. She attacked her now-infamous ass-eating scene on the season premiere of “Girls” like you would a particularly tricky work problem: by callin’ the ‘rents. When presented with the script that revealed her on-screen sort of love interest would be simulating ears-deep ass-eating, like any one of us would, she turned to her parents, including dad Brian Williams, for advice.
She told Vulture:
Because of my wiring, I was like, “Any advice? What do you guys think in terms of what adhesive I should use?” I got some advice from my parents, because they too are veterans of the show, so their thinking has changed as well.
What strong wiring! I do think it is admirable that she is comfortable enough to frankly discuss the nuances of tossing salad with her parents in a professional manner. That’s the ultimate in parent-child relations, right? I feel relieved to know that there really isn’t anything off limits in the Williams household! Case in point: noted robot Brian Williams’ take:
For us, watching her is the family occupation and everybody has to remember it’s acting, no animals were harmed during the filming, and ideally nobody gets hurt.
So, if you were trying to figure out if this was the one episode that Allison was like, “You guys, it’s cool, you really don’t need to watch this, I know it’s the premiere, but close your eyes, k?” there’s your answer. NOPE. Have a great Tuesday!
