Allison Williams: ‘Girls’ Will Go Down In History
9:30 am, January 17th | by Laura Donovan
Forget Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, “Girls” is going to become the next biggest legend ever, according to cast member Allison Williams, who told Company magazine in a new interview that people will look back on the HBO series in two decades and remember how life as a twenty-something was like.
“It’s like a digital time capsule,” the young woman explained, “people will watch it in 20 years time and it will sum up a certain generation.”
Yeah, forget iPhones, Instagram, Facebook, and all the other things Millenials obsess over now — “Girls,” which is barely in its second season, is going to define our generation more than anything else. Our kids will think we were all just like that set of four women in New York. While it’s definitely true that the show has already made its mark in society and attracted a strong following, there’s no telling how we’ll view it next year or even a few years from now. Let’s not get carried away here, even with Golden Globe wins and more press than any series could ever need. Eventually, people tire of everything, and it would be silly to assume this early on that “Girls” will be going down in history.
On the bright side, the Yale graduate redeemed herself by confessing she’s obsessed with trashy tabloid, The Daily Mail — “Talk about guilty pleasure! All day, every day.” Now that’s something I can get behind.
