Family Time: Allison Williams Watches Girls Sex Scenes With Her Dad

Before Allison Williams was Marnie on HBO's Girls, she was covering Ke$ha on YouTube and mocking Kate Middleton on Funny or Die. Of course, her role in Lena Dunham's controversial show has sky-rocketed Williams to fame (Fun fact: It's her first proper acting gig). And, if you haven't read the endless articles tackling the subject, the show's rife with honest and often uncomfortable sex scenes and on-screen nudity (writer/director Dunham being the principal volunteer). Yet, before the first season premiered last year, GQ asked Williams whether or not she'll get naked. She replied, "I would prefer to keep my clothes on. Unless there's a brisk breeze or something, I tend to keep them on." Looks like that was one resolution she didn't feel the need to keep —this season, we're seeing Williams' character break out of her uptight shell and shedding clothes like there's a major wind chill.
The change of heart has led to some, uh, awkward questions: When Williams made a guest appearance on Chelsea Lately, host Chelsea Handler asked the actress whether her father, NBC news anchor father Brian Williams, watches his daughter's (more frequent) sex scenes. According to Williams junior, Dad not only watches them, but she watches them with him. Apparently, guiding Bri through the whole filming process lessens the "weirdness" that comes with seeing his daughter naked on screen. We have to hand Allison the ballsiness award here — It's one thing to have the confidence to do a sex scene, it's another to watch it with Pop, too. (Huffington Post)
