LA Times – When director Matt Spicer was casting the title role of his dark tale of obsession and identity “Ingrid Goes West”, he wasn’t sure if Aubrey Plaza would be the right fit. “My only question was does she see this as a comedy?” he recalled thinking. “Or is she going to be able to do some of the more dramatic stuff we’re going to need her to be able to do?” Consider those questions asked and answered. With her current run of work, Plaza has emerged as a performer of surprising depth and range, and a creative force to be reckoned with behind the camera too. In addition to serving as both star and producer for “Ingrid Goes West,” opening Friday, Plaza produced “The Little Hours,” a randy medieval comedy that opened earlier this summer. The back-to-back indies arrive in the wake of some of the best critical notices of Plaza’s career for her performance on TV’s “Legion.”

“For ‘Ingrid,’ that movie is really a character piece, at least that’s how I saw it. I wanted to have as much control and I wanted my opinion to matter as much as I could,” she said during a recent interview in Los Angeles. “I saw the movie in my mind when I read it. I was, like, ‘I know what this can be and as a producer I can help it get to that place.’ As an actor, I can only give my opinion and hope that someone cares.”

“My relationship with [social media] is so complicated because I don’t like doing it and it makes me feel bad most of the time. I have a hard time with it. But it’s also such a way to communicate with people now, so it’s hard to dismiss,” Plaza said. “You’re not going to see me doing a bunch of selfies and stuff like that. That’s not part of my life. I can’t. The idea of that is just, no.”

Backstage – There’s a seriousness to everything Aubrey Plaza does. You may not notice it at first, especially since she’s known for her specific brand of off-kilter humor. But in talking about one of her latest films, the social media satire “Ingrid Goes West,” the Wilmington, Delaware–born actor half-joked that she had moments on set where she thought to herself, I’ll cut my arm off! I’ll do anything!, to nail whatever scene she was shooting. That’s the candid confession of an actor who doesn’t take any role she plays lightly, no matter how lighthearted the role may seem.

[…]

Plaza first knew she wanted to become a performer at age 12 when she saw the USO-themed musical “For the Boys.” “I remember seeing that and thinking, I’m gonna be a performer like Bette Midler.” It pushed her to become heavily involved in community theater at the Wilmington Drama League, but it would take years before she’d be able to make that initial fantasy of being an actor feel attainable. Part of it had to do with her parents, who valued her education and wouldn’t condone her skipping school to head to New York for auditions like her then-boyfriend (and eventual Tony winner) John Gallagher Jr. did.

As the stars of the dark and quirky Sundance hit “Ingrid Goes West,” Aubrey Plaza and Elizabeth Olsen — who frequently inhabit opposite ends of the character spectrum — play out a comedic, cutting-edge take on the modern social phenomenon of Insta-envy and Insta-aspiration. Adrift in her life, loner Ingrid (Plaza) takes her obsession with the picture-perfect images from the feed of social media-savvy Taylor (Olsen) to a disturbing, sometimes funny, extreme.

WWD: How soon after signing on to this did you guys start following each other on Instagram?
Elizabeth Olsen: I didn’t have an Instagram, and you didn’t either. Well, apparently, you did.
Aubrey Plaza: I did. I had a private one. No, I didn’t have a public one.
E.O.: She never invited me or told me about it!
A.P.: Come on. Don’t do this. I never post on it.
E.O.: You post a lot of stories on it.

The first thing Aubrey Plaza says when she pulls up in the parking lot of the Vermont Canyon tennis courts is “I don’t really know how to play tennis. Do you?” The first thing I do in response is to laugh in her face, because this must be a joke. It’s a hot, nosebleed-dry Los Angeles day; there’s no cloud cover or trees to protect us from the sun, and the asphalt courts are heating up like a kiln. The only acceptable place for a human is somewhere air-conditioned, but one of us had proposed a rousing game of tennis and — hint, hint — it wasn’t me. When Plaza — queen of the deadpan delivery, patron saint of the sharp-tongued — claims she doesn’t know how to play tennis after suggesting we play tennis, my instant and totally unfair response is to assume she’s setting me up and will soon be mocking me for sweating profusely, like she’s a real-life April Ludgate.

[…]

In person, Plaza is less deadpan, less caustic, less sarcastic, maybe even goofier, than the onscreen persona that made her famous. Still, she tells me, she’s well aware that I expected her to be a total jerk during tennis. It happens to her all the time, even now, at 33, almost a decade after she first played April.

“When I meet people for the first time, they can’t believe I’m not going to be mean,” she says. “They’ll do a thing where they’ll be kind of mean to me, and I can tell they think that that’s what I’m like.” Such are the hazards of finding fame as a misanthropic adolescent. “It’s like I’m too much of a people pleaser to not do it,” she says. “Sometimes it’s fun for me, because if I say something sarcastic or whatever, they’ll eat it up; they aren’t offended. I’m like, I know what you want. You want me to fucking say something weird to you. Fine.”
