Aubrey Plaza, as an actress, does dead-eyed and monotone-voiced really well. Which is why she’s actually perfect to play Daria, in a live-action version of the popular MTV cartoon. She basically is Daria, right? Unfortch, this movie isn’t real (yet!), but the faux trailer is a good start. [College Humor]
Last night on “Conan,” Aubrey Plaza had the awkward job of talking about her onscreen masturbation scene in her new film “The To-Do List.” Her answer was vague yet funny, just as you’d expect:
“I read it on the page and it said ‘Brandy masturbates.’ In my head I envisioned a nice scene where I see my hand slowly go out of frame … but when I showed up, the camera was mounted on the ceiling, I was in my underwear and a Clinton t-shirt and there were a bunch of old men smoking … the crew guys … then I went and touched myself … I thought I was doing one thing and when I showed up it was a whole different thing. It was a full body shot and I asked the director ‘What should I do?’ and she said, ‘Masturbate like it says in the script.’”
The hazards of the job. Sometimes you show up on set and you just have to pleasure yourself in front of a room full of old men smoking. Then you have to re-live the experience when you’re doing press. That’s what makes you a pro. Seriously, that’s got to be uncomfortable.[Gawker]
What to wear to the premiere of the hilarious, female-driven new comedy “The To Do List”? A short party dress, natch. I’m completely obsessed with Rachel Bilson’s blue frock, while Aubrey’s sweetheart neckline dress is adorable too. Done well, ladies. [Photo: INFPhoto.com]
The things on my personal life bucket list — skydiving, a hot air balloon ride at sunrise, swimming with and/or near a manatee, a glimpse of Beyonce casually pushing Blue Ivy on a swing set in Brooklyn — are all perfectly reasonable, potentially feasible and not entirely out of the realm of possibility. I love having attainable goals, so why not apply the same concept to the wild and wonderful world of sexy times? Use this as a guide, inspired by the hilarious new movie “The To Do List,” starring the fantastic Aubrey Plaza, as a list of gentle suggestions and possibilities. It’s summer, it’s hot and no one’s wearing much clothing anyway — embrace it! For your consideration, I present the top 15 people, places and positions on our sexual to-do list. Keep reading »
“Imma let you finish but … ”
Aubrey Plaza didn’t actually say those words, but last night, onstage at the MTV Movie Awards, it was deja vu: she rushed onstage while Will Ferrell accepted his “Comedic Genius” Award and tried to pull the award out of his hands, before awkwardly stumbling back to her seat.
Publicity stunt for her new movie (which was scrawled across her chest in black sharpie)? Too much Hennessey on the red carpet? If this little incident was staged, I feel like Peter Dinklage — who was standing in the background after presenting Ferrell with his award — would have been involved somehow. And the look on Aubrey’s face when she plopped back in her seat, sans drink, looked kinda “Oh my God, what have I done?” to me.
MTV says it was definitely not planned and that Aubrey Plaza was escorted from the show after the incident. What say you? [Entertainment Weekly, MTV News]
