I have a love/hate one-way-relationship withGirls star Allison Williams. On one hand I love her by default. She’s related to Brian Williams and I therefore am legally bound as an American to be in awe of her genetics. On the other hand, I’m constantly told that I’m “a Marnie” because I’m also anal-retentive. While this pales in comparison to all the years people told me that I was “a Miranda,” I still find it to be insulting.
It’s like telling someone you that they remind you of Anne Hathaway — not because she’s a beautiful and talented actress — but because one time you forgot to wear underwear under a short dress and everyone saw your Fantine.
But regardless of my feelings toward the Girls star, she showed up on Reddit this morning posing with a sea lion. I would even go as far as to say that she posed with wild amounts of enthusiasm.
Unfortunately I cannot say the same about the sea lion. Suffice it to say, this is no Andre. He’s not here for the fame and the fish treats. It’s possible he didn’t even want to be photographed with Allison Williams at all — at least not until all the Lena Dunham controversy dies down.
