Aubrey Plaza shares amazing acting tips for actors.
Aubrey Plaza is quickly becoming Hollywood's IT
girl. After her role in Parks and Recreation
as a sarcastic office employee, she plays a spicy, and adventurous woman in Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates.
But, in a recent interview with Yahoo!, Plaza explains that ever since she became famous, people are constantly making assumptions about her personality and personal life.
Its always mind-blowing to me that people assume that I am my character. Or that people even care how similar I am in real life, Plaza says, pointing out that she isnt as sarcastic or cold-hearted as many of the characters she portrays.
Similar to most actors who have become recognizable stars, Plaza has not yet come to terms with being famous and is still believes that she should never turn down an acting job. Plaza argues, I have to remind myself that Im not in survival mode anymore. Later, she adds, Its hard for me to keep in perspective what has happened or where I am in my career. I never feel satisfied. I never feel like I can take a break.
So Im looking forward to just feeling that way my whole life. I just want so badly for things that Im in to be great but you dont have control over any of it.
One of the reasons why Plaza works so hard is that she hasn't yet figured out what's her "Dream Role". She explains, If you told me, Aubrey, you can write whatever you want. Whats your dream role? Im just blank. I dont know. Thats not how I think. Theres not one character. Like, I always wanted to be a sexy lawyer whos secretly an alien.'
Plaza then explains that she jus tries to surround herself with talented filmmakers. However, that goal is often the most challenging part of becoming an actor. You cant really call your agent and be like hey, so tomorrow I want to have lunch with the Coen brothers, OK? 12 p.m. Ill meet them at Roscoes Chicken and Waffles.
