Parks and Recreation star Aubrey Plaza (and long-time fave of the queer community) has just come out as queer herself.
Well… perhaps ‘come out’ is the wrong word. It doesn’t appear to have been a secret, more than Aubrey confirmed herself as queer in a recent interview with The Advocate.
The actress was also asked about her role as a lesbian character in 2015 film Addicted to Fresno, saying the role 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.”
And then, when asked if women ever come on to her, she said:
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.”
Having provided the voice for Grumpy Cat she added that the feline she is “definitely gay” and that “people just need to deal with it.”
