A lot of people already know that Aubrey Plaza is great. It’s something she’s proved in the likes of Parks & Recreation, Scott Pilgrim, Safety Not Guaranteed, Playing It Cool and even Dirty Grandpa. Now she’s seems a little bit more awesome, as she’s suggested she is bisexual.
Talking to The Advocate, she says of the fact she knows some women have crushes on her, “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.”
Plaza says she has long felt welcome in the world of LGBT and that it’s always been around her as, “I have a gay aunt and a gay uncle, and I grew up thinking that everyone had a gay aunt or uncle. My younger sister is a lesbian, so it’s just in my blood.” She adds that she also knows she has a bit of an LGBT following, saying, “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 will be seen imminently in Mike & Dave Need Wedding Dates.
