Plaza is well aware that she has a sizable LGBT following, and she would expect nothing less. “I mean, it makes sense to me. I feel like I operate in an old-school way that only gays truly understand,” she told The Advocate. “So for me it’s the ultimate compliment. My tastes are like an older gay man’s, and I think that’s who I really am. Like, I grew up obsessed with Judy Garland, and I was also obsessed with how much she meant to her following.”
Plaza is also unbothered by getting hit on by women. Incidentally, Plaza, who broke out on Parks & Recreation, happens to date woman as well as men.
“I don’t mind. I know I have an androgynous thing going on, and there’s something masculine about my energy,” Plaza said. “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.”
Last year, Plaza starred in the comedy Addicted to Fresno, in which she played a Krav Maga instructor who is infatuated with Natasha Lyonne. Plaza admitted the part wasn’t too much of a stretch for her.
“It was less about pretending to be a lesbian and more about portraying a human being with a massive crush on Natasha Lyonne’s character,” she explained. “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.
Mike and Dave Need Weddings Dates is currently in theaters.
