Ashley Williams is one of Hollywood's most versatile actresses and directors. Many people know her from the many holiday and other movies she has done for the Hallmark Channel, such as Holiday Hearts, "Two Tickets to Paradise," "Christmas In Evergreen," "Sister Swap and other favorites . But her resume has so much so much more from comedies to dramas in film, television, and theatre. You may know her from and in the TV Land series "The Jim Gaffigan Show," where she played Jim's TV wife, Jeannie Gaffigan, who was grounding yet zany or "How I Met Your Mother."
On her favorite mottos to live by, she said, "half the pressure, twice the speed." "That's a big one for me (as a director)," she said. "I also really have to go to bed early. I get stressed in my life at night, and I would say 'gosh, everything feels really overwhelming' and my husband would say 'I think you're tired and he's right.' I wake up the next morning and say 'okay, we got this'. So my motto is to go to bed early."
What She Watches
Her favorite series to binge-watch is "I Love That For You" on Showtime. Her favorite movies include "The Shawshank Redemption," "CODA," "Airplane," "Bad Santa," and "Beverly Hills Cop II." She also noted that she hopes to watch the new "Top Gun: Maverick" film at a theater.
On Running and Relaxing
In an effort to unwind and relax, she enjoys going to sleep, as well as going on a run/walking/jog where most of it is walking. "I like to huff and puff, I need to get out of breath for a good 40 minutes each day as a stress relief," she admitted.
If she were to do any track and field event, it would be long-distance running. "I was a sprinter when I was in high school, and I still hold the record for one of the dashes but I am more of a distance runner now. When I say run, I mean run and walk," she clarified.
