Allison Williams Hasn't Done a Movie Yet Because She Always Wants to Play the Male Roles

Allison Williams graces the cover of Glamour magazine’s February 2015 issue.

Here’s what the 26-year-old Girls actress had to share with the mag:

On why she hasn’t done a movie yet: “The number of scripts that take my breath away are few and far between. There are some that are gorgeous, but I want to play all the male roles in them. I always ask, and I’m always told no.”

On when she’ll start a family: “I have a lot of questions: How do I get to a place in my career where I can go be a mom for a little while, and then come back and be a mom and an actress at the same time?…. Every time I find a woman in film, an actress who has kids, I, like a sociopath, corner her and ask, ‘How did it work?’ Everyone says, ‘Don’t think so much.’ Jemima [Kirke], from Girls, is always saying, ‘Just get pregnant! Just have a baby.’ And I’m like, ‘You are so much cooler than I am.’ I love what I do, but I have no doubt that when I start my family, that’s life. This is my job, but that’s life.”

On her future goals: “I have vague EGOT [Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony] goals. Who doesn’t? I have zero of those so far, so I have a lot of work to do.”

'Peter Pan Live' Ratings Strong, But Fall from 'Sound of Music'

The new NBC tradition of airing a live musical continued for the second year with Peter Pan Live and while the ratings were strong, they fall sharply from last year’s The Sound of Music Live.

The three-hour production pulled in a 5.9 rating, down from The Sound of Music‘s 10.9 rating. That means that 5.9% of all television equipped households in the country were tuned in during the show.

“We’re very pleased with the Peter Pan ratings and it was a great night for NBC. We won every hour, which hasn’t happened on Thursday with entertainment programming since a year ago,” NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt said in a statement (via THR). “I’m proud to be part of a company that takes chances and creates big events, and that’s exactly what we’re going to continue to do. We didn’t expect to reach the same rating as The Sound of Music since that was the first live movie event of its kind in over 50 years. But the high wire act of Peter Pan was a joy for everyone involved and I take my hat off to Allison Williams, Christopher Walken, the entire company, and our incredible directors and producers for three months of the hardest work I’ve ever seen. I love these live events and we’re already working on putting the next one together.”

Allison Williams on 'Peter Pan Live': Don't Hate Watch It!

Tonight is the night and Allison Williams will be bringing Peter Pan Live to audiences around the country on NBC’s live special!

The musical is the follow up to last year’s smash hit, The Sound of Music Live, and the cast of this year’s show knows that the audience is very likely to hate watch.

“I will say this about last year: today’s audiences like to watch things cynically,” Allison told The Daily Beast. “And I’m on a show that’s cynical in tone so I’m no stranger to that.”

“Hatewatching is a thing,” she added. “It’s a whole way of watching something, and it’s not an audience that’s natural to a non-cynical performance. Peter Pan, you cannot watch cynically. If you do, you’re going to hate it, no question. It falls apart instantly.”

Also starring in the show will be Christopher Walken as Captain Hook, Kelli O’Hara as Mrs. Darling, and Christian Borle as Mr. Darling/Smee.
