Parks and Recreation star Aubrey Plaza comes out as queer


Aubrey Plaza, better known as April from hit sitcom Parks and Recreation, has come out as bisexual in an interview with The Advocate magazine.

The star of films like Life After Beth, Scott Pilgrim vs the World and Dirty Grandpa said “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.”

Speaking with the LGBT magazine about her recent role as a lesbian woman in 2015’s Addicted to Fresno, Plaza noted that the role was “less about pretending to be a lesbian and more about portraying a human being with a massive crush on Natasha Lyonne’s character. Natasha’s a friend, and she called me up, like, ‘Do you want to come do a movie and make out with me?’ I have a major crush on her in real life, so it was fun.”

Plaza’s new film Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates is out in the UK next month. Watch a trailer for the film below:
