Allison Williams: Proposal Was “Best Kind of Surprise”

She fancies herself a pretty observant person, and yet Allison Williams was caught completely off guard when fiancé Ricky Van Veen popped the question.

During her interview on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” the “Girls” star explained, “I was completely surprised. And the funniest thing about that is I consider myself someone who is impossible to surprise, and yet I am constantly surprised by things.”

“I walk around the world poised and ready for a surprise. On my 25th birthday [on April 15] it was particularly bad. I went to the movies and I opened the movie theatre door and I went, ‘Everyone's here that I... don't know. A room full of strangers, got it.’ And then I would walk into a restaurant and be like, ‘Hey... people in the restaurant that I don't know.’”

Williams continued, “I guess that definitely could mean that I'm in a constant state of disappointment, but instead it means that I live life one potential surprise to the next.”

Seth chimed in, “And yet, a surprise snuck through on you.” Allison answered, “A total surprise and the best kind of surprise. We’re really, really thrilled.”
