Allison Williams wouldn't masturbate in a public restroom. But that's not the only difference between her and Marnie Michaels, the character she plays on HBO's hit comedy Girls.
"There were moments reading the script that I thought, 'WOW, okay!' " the actress, 24, tells Company magazine's February issue and digital edition. "It's the most private thing anyone can do, but being an actress can make you feel vulnerable."
She adds: "My grandparents watch the show. I don't know why I was so concerned, though. They have been alive for virtually 90 years, so who am I to presume that sex never existed before me?"

The stars headed up to the Top of the Standard to celebrate the upcoming premiere of Girls, HBO's racy new comedy about four twentysomething women finding their way in New York City. And it was a glamorous cocktail party that was a far cry from the sometimes challenging Brooklyn living depicted on the witty new show.
With plates of charcuterie and cheese on reserved tables, guests such as Claire Danes, Chloe Sevigny, Gabourey Sidibe, former Real Housewives of N.Y.C. star Kelly Bensimon and the show's producer Judd Apatow fanned out around the circular room, mingling in the intimate space and taking in the panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline.
Danes shared a moment with the show's stars Jemima Kirke and Zosia Mamet while Lena Dunham, the new show's writer, director and lead actress, hung out at her private table, chatting with Apatow and greeting well-wishers such as John Cameron Mitchell with a friendly handshake. At one point, Dunham headed to Le Bain, just across the hall from the main party space, where she chatted with Boardwalk Empire's Steve Buscemi, who was enjoying a plate of food from the nearby buffet.

Bonnie Hunt has a boyfriend ... NBC News anchor Brian Williams.
The crush was first revealed in September, when the TV host welcomed Elmo to The Bonnie Hunt Show, where Elmo let it slip that Hunt had a thing for Williams, who'd recently been on Sesame Street.
The powers-that-be at NBC then informed their flattered (and married) newsman, who wrote about it on his daily blog.
On Monday's show, Hunt reveals that Williams has taken their relationship one step further, having over-nighted to her an "adorable, funny, smart and witty letter."
In it, "her boyfriend," as Hunt refers to Williams, writes that he's upset that she confided in Elmo, "because everyone in the business knows Elmo is a terrible gossip."

"Tim was a big teddy bear of a guy, but he was also a pit bull of an interviewer," says Couric. "He always held people's feet to the fire, often using their past words with great effect to reveal flip-flops or hypocrisy. While Tim was incredibly tenacious, he always did his job with great humanity and respect."

CLAUDIA COVERED: Instead of getting cheers, the bride got jeers Saturday, Reuters reported of the wedding of German supermodel Claudia Schiffer and British film producer Matthew Vaughn, both 31. The reason: The crowd waiting outside eastern England's Coldham Hall, the couple's residential manor, wanted a peek at the bride as she left her house for the wedding at St. George's Church in Shimpling. What they got instead, said the news service, was the sight of Schiffer draped in a blanket. "We were all so disappointed and disgusted," gawker Janet Damant told the news service. Guests, who presumably saw the bride in all her glory, included tennis star Boris Becker, Madonna's husband Guy Ritchie, Sting's wife Trudie Styler and designer Valentino.
