Speaking to Anderson Cooper about the racy show on which the lead, and the show’s creator, Lena Dunham, who plays Hannah Horvath, is basically always n00d and hooking up with someone. And in this season, Williams gets some racy scenes of her own after initially playing it safe and only showing sideb00b.
For example, in a love scene with a gay male friend, it’s over quickly and she doesn’t show much skin (it’s probably in her contract that she’ll only do covered scenes). And in a recent scene, she hooks up at her job as hostess and you only see her sides. So, in fairness, her own scenes aren’t that bad and she shows some of the least amounts of skin.
She tells Cooper her parents understand her job: “It’s a unique experience. So far we’ve watched all of the episodes for the first time together. I filmed them, so I know what’s coming and I can prepare them.”
Williams, in her mid-20s, continues that she was still living with her parents during the first season: “I’d come home from work and be like, this is what I did today… There have been times when I’m watching with my little brother and I’ve pulled the brim of his baseball cap down.”
