Aubrey Plaza who is currently starring in Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates got candid about her sexuality with Advocate, and LGBT magazine.
Aubrey Plaza, The Parks and Recreation actress, now 32 shared that she falls in love with women and men. Aubrey Plaza said, “I know I have an androgynous thing going on, and there’s something masculine about my energy,” Plaza said. “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.”
The Dirty Grandpa actress said she realized she found a home doing community theater and it allowed her to let her “freak flag fly.” She was actually very fortunate to live in a family that was open about sexuality despite being in a heavily Irish Catholic, Republican area. Aubrey’s sister is a lesbian and the About Alex actress stated that she has a strong following in the LGBT community. The Addicted to Fresno actress said, “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 talked about the characters she and Anna Kendrick play in Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates. Aubrey said, “My whole personal back story for Tatiana and Alice is that they met on an episode of Oxygen’s Bad Girls Club. They were, like, the alpha girls in the house who took everybody else down, and that’s how they became best friends. They probably make out when they’re wasted. I realize that, with Dirty Grandpa, I’ve done two movies back to back where my character is all tan, wearing bikinis, and partying like crazy. I was never really like that, but luckily, I have people in my life who were or still are.” You can look forward to Plaza’s next film The Little Hours in 2017.
