I have just updated our gallery with over 600 high-quality screen captures of Aubrey as Cat Adams in the “Criminal Minds” season finale episode, entitled ‘Red Light’.
The promotion of ‘Ingrid Goes West’ is starting! I have just updated our gallery with a beautiful shot of Aubrey photographed by Sharif Hamza for V Magazine. Be sure to read the interview below!
No matter how old you are, chances are you’ve found yourself stalking someone on social media. In Ingrid Goes West, a film directed by Matt Spicer, the title character, played by Aubrey Plaza, takes stalking to the next level, moving across the country and changing her entire identity to befriend Taylor Sloane, an Instagram celebrity played by Elizabeth Olsen. “For me, the movie is about that urge that people get to obsess over people they don’t know on Instagram, and what happens when that gets blown out,” Plaza says.
To prepare for the role, Plaza stalked Olsen in the flesh, which she found easy to do. “She’s a ridiculous human being. She’s beautiful and funny and effortlessly cool. She’s the whole package. It was very easy to get lost in that.” She also drew on her own experiences with social media sites such as Twitter, which she left in the wake of the election, and Facebook, which she hasn’t used in 10 years. “It felt like everything I was looking at made me feel bad about myself. That can happen if you’re not conscious when you’re using [social media] because it’s human nature to want to look at other people’s lives and feel like they have something you don’t.”
A mature person deletes their Facebook account when they can’t stop obsessing about other people’s profiles. A crazy person sells all of her possessions, changes her hair color, and literally tries to become the person whose account they check every 30 seconds, as Ingrid does in the film. But Plaza is careful not to label the character as “crazy.” “I really tried to figure out what the human story is with her and not try to label her in any way in terms of mental illness.”
The film doesn’t pass judgment on Instagram stalkers, or social media in general. “There’s no hidden agenda,” Plaza says. “It explores how humans can use Instagram as a device to further their unhealthy behavior, or not.” She adds, “I’ve never gone too far down the rabbit hole.” The real question is: if she did allow herself to, who would she be looking at?”
Aubrey might not have attended this year’s MTV Movie Awards, but she still surprised us by playing Eleven in a Stranger Things/Get Out parody featuring Adam Devine.
Weird nightmare realms was an unexpected (but absolutely fitting) trend of last year, so it’s no surprise the MTV Movie Awards capitalised on a convenient mash-up.
Get Out’s Sunken Place and Stranger Things’ the Upside Down came together for a short parody featuring the show’s host, Workaholics’ Adam Devine.
Accidentally sent there by Allison Williams and her teacup, Devine found himself coming face-to-face with Jillian Bell’s Barb and a particularly unwanted take on the Demigorgon, alongside Trey Songz’s Lucas.
If Bell’s Barb wasn’t already fairly perfect casting, she was then followed by the queen-of-creep herself, Aubrey Plaza, turning up as Eleven and introducing a place where Taco Bell is called Quesadilla Ding-Dong, Tracy Morgan is the Pope, and Hillary Duff is the president.
On Monday, a Reddit post popped up saying it contained a “Never-aired TV Pilot featuring Aubrey Plaza and Nathan Fillion.” And when we looked into it, we couldn’t find the video anywhere else — or any mention of the show either. Our best guess is that this is either the pilot or a pre-pilot episode for Nightmare Time, a pilot from Plaza that TBS recently opted to not pursue.
In any case: Aubrey Plaza! Nathan Fillion! A weird group of teens! An axe murderer!
The only other hint is that the opening frames of the new video are the ending frames of The Dark Side Of Ring Pop!, a video by sketch group Delaware featuring Plaza:
We have been waiting for quite a while – and it has finally dropped! Gunpowder & Sky has just released the first official trailer for The Little Hours, starring Aubrey, Alison Brie, Dave Franco, Fred Armisen, John C. Reilly and more. The film is set to be released in theaters on June 30th.
It’s finally here! The first official teaser for ‘Ingrid Goes West‘ has just been unveiled – and the movie looks super intense. It seems Aubrey gives us yet another phenomenal performance as Ingrid Thorburn. The film, also starring Elizabeth Olsen, is set to be released on August 4th.
