There’s no denying Aubrey Plaza is a complex woman… But she’s also a silly (string) girl, too.
The 28-year-old half-Puerto Rican actress/comedian graces the cover of Complex magazine’s April/May issue, complete with colorful silly string and a headline that proclaims her a “Funny Girl.”
Here’s what the Parks and Recreation actress had to say in the magazine:
On wanting to be an actress: “I always knew what I wanted to do. I wanted to be both a comedian and an actor. I got really into Saturday Night Live. I became obsessed with the idea of being on that show. I started doing improv. I always had a goal. It was always me saying, ‘I know what I want to do and I want to do it now!’”
On what she’s learned from Parks and Recreation: “It’s taught me everything. The biggest thing is gaining experience from doing it every day, so getting to work on the show for so many years has been the best thing for me. And it’s nice that the character I play on that show is pretty close to home. It feels like a part of me, something I’ve created. When I do movies or other projects I can say I want to do something different.”
On her character in The To Do List: “Yeah, The To Do List is gonna be fun because I’m not sarcastic, depressed, or weird in it. I’m a type-A, almost obnoxious kind of girl. I wanted to do something where I’m not the weirdo who’s in the back of the classroom for a change. I want to be the girl who’s in the front of the classroom raising her hand.”
The April/May issue of Complex is out on newsstands now.
