Actress Aubrey Plaza spoke candidly about her sexuality in a recent interview with The Advocate.
When asked if women have come on to her, the “Parks and Recreation” star said yes but it doesn’t bother her.
“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,” the 32-year-old told The Advocate.
Plaza played a lesbian Krav Maga instructor with a crush on actress Natasha Lyonne’s character in the film “Addicted to Fresno.” She says she took the role because of her love for Lyonne.
“It was less about pretending to be 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,” Plaza says.
Plaza also says it “makes sense” she has an LGBT following.
“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 says.
Plaza currently stars in the film “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates” alongside Zac Efron, Anna Kendrick and Adam DeVine.
