Crucial Update

Allison Williams and Her Stomach Find Closure

Being Allison Williams involves many unpleasant things. For instance, Girls forced her to walk barefoot on the streets of New York City and recieve vigorous analingus, plus — perhaps worst of all — she had to star in NBC's Peter Pan LIVE! But it appears that these don't stress out Allison Williams as much as everyday, average things, like being cold or preparing salad.

As an addendum to our previous list, here are some of the things Allison Williams is currently stressed out about, as told to Harper by Harper's Bazaar during her stint as guest editor:

Her stomach

She posted this photo from the cover to Instagram with the caption, "I am particularly proud of this one. For my whole life until 2 years ago, I was super self-conscious about my stomach. I dreaded bikini season. I kept it covered. Boyfriends weren't allowed to touch it. No amount of crunches seemed to strengthen it. Then I met @ilariacavagna who introduced me to the magic and focus of Pilates. I have never felt stronger, healthier, more focused, or more feminine. Now, I love my stomach because it keeps me grounded to my core. And it's still the same stomach! Here's to proving yourself wrong."

Wearing athleisure

"I'll often stay in exercise clothes all day," she says, then added the very stressed out-sounding: "Which I know is a faux pas."

Preparing salad

"I am the world's worst cook. Not only am I bad at it, but I also have some kind of inability to learn.  When I cook, the salad is done first and is soggy by the time you eat."

Overcooking meat

"I'm perpetually worried that the meat is going to poison everyone, so it ends up being black. It's a nightmare, so I just order in."

Whether "rustic preppy" is a thing or not

"I'd like to call my style easy, timeless, and rustic preppy (if that's a thing), which most often translates as endless button-downs, a chic pair of boots, a good variety of sweaters, and my staple — jeans."
