CosmoAubrey Plaza Is Cosmo’s July Cover Star, and She’s Gonna Eat You Alive: It’s not her boundary-pushing characters or her refusal to sell out—it’s the fact that she’s openly, obsessively, brazenly focused on making it to the top. And if you get in her way, she’ll swallow you whole.

Almost exactly 10 years ago, Aubrey Plaza was at one of her first real magazine photo shoots. Her memory is not great, she admits, so I help her cobble the scene together: It was a characteristically pleasant day in Santa Monica, at a hotel with a pool in the center of a small courtyard.

Oh my god, right,” she says. “YES.” It was a Young Hollywood–themed shoot, with about a dozen actors assembled for pictures and speedy interviews. At this point in time, 24-year-old Aubrey had already filmed one of her first movie roles, as the stand-up comedian Daisy in Funny People, and her first regular TV gig, as the perpetually unimpressed intern April Ludgate on Parks and Recreation, but neither had been released.

She was pure potential energy that day—nobody knew who she was yet. Except for me, kind of, because I was supposed to be the one interviewing her. “I remember being really scared,” she says. “And insecure. All the other actors had people with them and I didn’t have anyone. I was alone, wandering around, like, ‘Is this where I’m supposed to be?’

[…]

In the years since Parks’ series finale, Aubrey’s done films like the social media send-up Ingrid Goes West and the FX show Legion. She also starred in and coproduced the oddball indie The Little Hours, about rogue nuns, which her boyfriend, Jeff Baena, directed. More recently, she hosted the Independent Spirit Awards, which could have just been a standard gig but in her hands came alive. It unleashed a side of Aubrey that’s been building up for the past few years.

My brain just exploded,” she says. “I went psycho style.” “As in, swinging for the fences?” I ask. “Oh, yeah. Constantly in arguments with the producers, being like, ‘I need more money! You need to send a car for Sharon Stone! Don’t fuck me on this!’” She laughs. “I turned into a monster.” This is 2019 Aubrey: hyper-focused, intense, inspired. She grows more excited talking about it and draws closer. She slides a fry off my plate and takes a bite, then informs me that she’ll now be eating more of my fries. “Once I produced something and I realized how much of an impact I can have, I could never go back,” she says. “Now I’m, like, fucked, because I’ve always gravitated toward more of a leadership position in whatever I’m doing. For Child’s Play, I wasn’t a producer, but I was acting like it—watching the monitor when other people were doing their scenes when I should have been in my trailer relaxing or something.

[…]

I’m entering a space right now where it’s like I’m so used to relying on this patriarchal idea of waiting around for someone to say, ‘You’—some brilliant man. I still have that voice inside my head that wants that,” she says. “But it’s like, I’m 34. I can do it myself. All the people who are my heroes created their own things. I’m ready to do that. I’m sick of doing other people’s shit. I want to do my own shit.

I have just updated our gallery with outtakes of Aubrey photographed for BuzzFeed UK to promote the release of “Ingrid Goes West” in the United Kingdom (November 17, in other words — today!). She did a really funny interview where she had to reply to 31 rapid-fire questions about herself — part of which you can find below, but be sure to check out the original publication (here) for more.

Have you ever been mistaken for another celebrity?: “Yeah, a bunch of people at one point thought I was Alison Brie on Community. In airports a lot, they’d come up to me and be like, “I love your work on Community!” And I’d go, “Thank you very much.”

What’s the biggest lie you’ve ever told? “I think when I was in fourth or fifth grade, on the playground, I used to tell people that my dad owned the Plaza Hotel, because I thought they’d think I was cool. No one believed me and it was a terrible lie, but a big one for a young child.

What’s the last thing you cried at? “Okja – the first 10 minutes, and then I turned it off. I cried within the first 10 minutes, so I was like, I can’t watch this movie.

What advice would you give to your teenage self? “I would say stop getting your hair cut like a middle-aged real estate agent woman. It doesn’t look good. The boys don’t like it.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given? “Go big or go home! Right out of the womb, my mom said that to me. As a toddler. She said, “If you’re gonna fuck up, just make sure it’s a big fuckup.”

Have you ever freaked out about meeting a celebrity? “Yeah. Nick Offerman brought me to see his wife in a musical at Carnegie Hall one time, and Patrick Wilson was in it, and I could barely talk because I was so excited to meet him. I made a fool out of myself and he thought I was a loser.

What’s one ambition you have yet to accomplish? “Oh, so many. Grammy. Tony. Emmy. ESPY? Is that an award? Any award, pretty much. No, I don’t care about awards. Just cooking a really great dinner, I guess. I never feel good about what I cook. But also, Grammy.

What’s one thing people would be surprised to know about you? “That I’m really sensitive on the inside! I don’t know, I don’t want anyone to know anything about me. I love small, confined spaces. I love being buckled in. That came out weird. I love seatbelts!
