I’ve added to the Allison Williams Online Gallery with 3 sets of event photos from this last week.
SHAPE: There’s so much focus on weight gain and loss when it comes to you and your Girls castmates. Why do you think that is?
Allison Williams (AW): I think weight fluctuation is part of this decade that we’re portraying on the show. So in a way, us just living our lives as twenty-somethings is mirroring what’s happening in the show. It’s not anything any of us are vigilant about or particularly preoccupied with. It’s a healthy and sane set with regards to that it’s not a part of the conversation.
SHAPE: How do you avoid nibbling all day when there are always snacks on the set?
AW: It’s harder at the beginning of the season. Until you get kind of desensitized to it, the fact that there is a table of donuts sitting there for eight hours is like a test of something. Once you break the seal, if you have one donut hole, then you have six, and then eight, and then it’s just over! So you have to be mindful of it because of the sugar rushes. You don’t want to keep giving yourself a sugar spike and then crash and get exhausted and need coffee because you shoot for a long time. On set I eat a lot of peanut butter and apples, things that have actual energy and protein in them to keep me going.
