Williams appears on the cover of the February 2015 issue of Glamour magazine. She talks about her future goals, when she will start a family, and why she hasn’t done a movie yet.
The number of scripts that take my breath away are few and far between. 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.
Williams appears on the cover of the December 2014 issue of Allure magazine. She talks about the similarities between her and Marnie, her body image, the most offensive thing anyone has said to her.
I cut off my hair twice. It was in high school, and a boy that I had a crush on said, ‘You’ve lost your aura.’ It was, to this day, the most offensive thing anyone’s ever said to me. And it was before extensions were everywhere, and I just had to muscle through it.
Poehler, Kaing, Deschanel, and Williams appear on their own covers of the February 2014 issue of Elle magazine. Poehler talks about getting into directing, producing, and writing. Williams talks about where she wants her career to go.
I want to play a villain. I want to play a romantic heroine. I want to play someone who’s on heroin. There’s nothing I don’t want to do. I want to play a guy at some point. I’ll gain 100 pounds, I’ll cut my hair off, I’ll do whatever. I’m not precious about any of it.
Elle Magazine interviews Williams about her weight in the film Girls and if she would consider loosing weight for a role.
When we shot the pilot, I was fresh out of college. I don’t know anyone who looks like they did in college. I was still a little puffy, for lack of a better word. This is just my size, and it has been for four years, but because that was the pilot, that’s how everyone saw me. If it’s for a role, absolutely [I would lose weight], but if someone said, ‘You could lose a couple pounds,’ I would say, ‘Oh my God, go fuck yourself.
