Aubrey Plaza is one of my favorite actresses. She’s funny, is pretty easy on the eyes, and comes off as the kind of girl you’d like to hang out with and drink a few beers.
Which is why she recently sat down with The Advocate where the interview eventually made it’s way to discussing her sexual orientation.
Here are a few excerpts…
Are you aware of your own LGBT following?
Yeah. I mean, it makes sense to me. I feel like I operate in an old-school way that only gays truly understand. So for me it’s the ultimate compliment. My tastes are like an older gay man’s, and I think that’s who I really am. Like, I grew up obsessed with Judy Garland, and I was also obsessed with how much she meant to her following.
Plaza went on to discuss her life growing up, her role in her new film as well as the character she played on Parks and Recreation, then closed the interview with this…
You played a lesbian Krav Maga instructor in Addicted to Fresno. How did you approach the character?
It was less about pretending to be a lesbian and more about portraying a human being with a massive crush on Natasha Lyonne’s character. Natasha’s a friend, and she called me up, like, “Do you want to come do a movie and make out with me?” I have a major crush on her in real life, so it was fun.
You also butched it up opposite Marisa Tomei in the short film She Said, She Said.
That was way too short. I was like, “Can’t we do a whole movie where I get to come on to Marisa Tomei?”
Do women come on to you?
Oh, yeah. I don’t mind. I know I have an androgynous thing going on, and there’s something masculine about my energy. Girls are into me — that’s no secret. Hey, I’m into them too. I fall in love with girls and guys. I can’t help it.
Oh yeah, she also said that the internet famous feline that she voiced in Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever is gay.
She may or may not have been joking. Who knows with her, which is one reason why I’m such a fan.
