Much like her character on Girls, it would seem that actress Allison Williams really does live a charmed and privileged life. Williams, who plays the uptight Marnie on the hit HBO show, was married to College Humor founder Ricky Van Veen last year. She spoke to Jimmy Fallon about her wedding on The Tonight Show on Wednesday.
Williams explains how she was searching for just right person to marry her and her fiancé, and unexpectedly managed to snag Tom Hanks to officiate the wedding. Although Williams is acting like that is no big deal...that is totally big deal.
How did she get the Oscar award winner for her ceremony? Hank's wife, Rita Wilson, suggested him. Wilson plays Marnie's insufferable mother on Girls, and Williams was asking her to sing at the wedding when Wilson dropped that her husband is ordained.
So Rita says– we're trying to ask her to sing [and] we were so nervous and we were describing what we wanted in an officiant and she goes "not for nothing, but Tom's ordained" and we were like "but is he good at that?".
Of course, Williams was joking about that last part. Tom Hanks is good at everything.
As good as we thought he was gonna be, as good as we knew he was gonna be, he was just like so great. He was so excellent. He was the best.
Of course he was! The man voiced Woody in Toy Story. He played Forrest Gump. He is the most likable man of all time! Williams also noted that Hanks "should do everyone's wedding," but it is unlikely that he will be using his free time to officiate wedding ceremonies instead of "beefing" with Steve Martin on Twitter.
It may be be worth a shot, however, because as Forrest says, "Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get, and you might get a really famous guy to marry you if you're lucky."
That's the quote, right?
