When this came out on YouTube in 2010, guess who was one of its fans? Oh, a little someone called Judd Apatow, along with the executives at HBO, who, upon seeing the video, reached out to Williams for an audition for Girls.
6. She was born and raised in Connecticut and got her B.A. in Theatre at Yale University.
7. She’s going to guest star on The Mindy Project this month.
8, 9 + 10. She has really awesome hair. Like, painfully gorgeous, Kate Middleton-hair. And she loves the Puppy Bowl. AND SHE WAS CHASED BY ELEPHANTS IN AFRICA! All three fun facts you can observe in this video from a David Letterman appearance:
Williams made her first public appearance as the new face of the brand on February 6 at a New York City red carpet premiere for the documentary MAKERS: Women Who Make America, proudly presented by Simple, which will air on Tuesday, February 26 at 8 p.m. ET on PBS (check your local listings). The documentary shares the brand’s like-minded vision of celebrating women whose authenticity, ideals and pioneering spirit inspire others every day — I for one can’t WAIT to see it!
