Aubrey Plaza: The ‘Best Friend’ You Want to Sleep With

Posted in girls by xx on March 23, 2010

By Chris Gayomali

There’s something about the archetypal neurotic smart girl (who always happens to be all-too-aware of her surrounding absurdity) that gets you.  This is because they aren’t real.

On screen, however, the figmented line these girls walk blurs all the usual distinctions; frumpy fun disinterested girls can be pretty, too. They’re a fantastical creature — Barbie doll proportions of wit and frowns for the thinking man (although, Tina Fey recently said that thinking men would fuck Megan Fox too, and she’s right).

In the tradition of Linda Cardellini’s Lindsay Weir, MTV’s Daria, and Ellen Page’s Juno, Aubrey Plaza‘s darkly-eyelined caricature of April on the still underrated Parks and Recreation sends tingles down the geek infused synapses of mens’ spines everywhere. Plaza plays the “best friend I’d like to fuck” illusion to a T, which isn’t dangerous or bad, but should be navigated with the same healthy skepticism of loosely bared breasts at a nightclub —they’re most likely not real, but that wouldn’t stop you now, would it?

If your answer is yes, then you’re probably thinking too much about it.
