Stepping away from the set of her hit TV series “Parks and Recreation,” Aubrey Plaza spices up the cover of Complex magazine”s April/May 2013 issue.
The 28-year-old actress rocked an all-pink ensemble for the cover shoot while dishing about everything from her love for “Saturday Night Live” to her character in “The To-Do List.”
“I always knew what I wanted to do,” Aubrey admits. “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. I never had a time in my life where I thought I don”t know what do and I want to do it now!”
Miss Plaza went on to intern for the NBC program, and said, “I felt like I was undercover, learning about everything. I read every sketch. I was stealing script pages and putting them in my bag. I would take them home, study them, and say to myself, “So this is how you write a sketch!””
When discussing her hit show “Parks and Recreations,” the brunette beauty explained, “Its 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 its 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.”
In regards about her upcoming rom-com, Aubrey reveals, “”The To Do List” is gonna be fun because Im not sarcastic, depressed, or weird in it. Im a type-A, almost obnoxious kind of girl. I wanted to do something where Im not the weirdo whos in the back of the classroom for a change. I want to be the girl whos in the front of the classroom raising her hand.”
