28-year-old actress Aubrey Plaza is on the cover of ASOS magazine’s March 2013 issue.
Inside, Plaza spoke about what it’s like to be on talk shows. She explained, “When I have to do talk shows, I have to treat it like some sort of weird performance art or else I can’t deal with it because that situation is so unnatural for me. It goes against every instinct in my body. I think people mistake my silences and my awkwardness for some kind of control. But the first interview I ever did for [Jay] Leno, I almost passed out in the middle of it. There is a moment you can see where I totally check out. I start looking at the floor for about five seconds and then I say something which got a really big laugh, but I remember in my head just thinking, ‘I’m going to pass out, I’m going to pass out.’”
Don’t worry though. Plaza will be okay. She’s already focused on her future. She said, “It would be really cool to be in a big action thriller, or a movie where I get to be a bad***. It would be pretty awesome to be Catwoman someday.”
