I like a lot of celebrities and can see myself being friends with many of them. However, there aren’t a lot of celebrities that I love and obsess over. Like, I’m really into Emma Stone, but I saw her in person and didn’t freak out. Celebs like Aubrey Plaza, on the other hand, make me fangirl so hard.
I freaking love Aubrey Plaza. I first noticed her in some online comedy sketches so when I saw her on Parks and Recreation, I was really excited. Aubrey plays April Ludgate on the show and is hilariously un-enthused about everything. Her sarcasm translates to real life, although she isn’t as unhappy about everything like her character.
Today is Aubrey Plaza’s 30th birthday (she looks so young!) so I wanted to celebrate one of my favorite celebs ever. I think I love her so much because she reminds me of one of my BFFs, but here are 30 reasons everyone should want to be besties with Aubrey:
1. She’s not afraid to tell someone to leave her alone.
2. She cherishes important days, which means she’ll cherish yours.
3. She knows what it’s like to be weird.
4. She knows that everyone makes mistakes.
5. She understands what it’s like to fall into an Ellen blackhole.
6. She thinks sexy Halloween costumes are kind of sexist. (But she’s cool so she wouldn’t care if you wanted to wear a sexy Halloween costume.)
7. She’s not above shameless self-promotion.
8. She’d be the best karaoke partner ever.
9. She gets awkward and uncomfortable like you do!

15. She’s not afraid to tell you no.
16. She totally understands what it’s like to have bitchy resting face.
17. She’ll awkwardly dance with you whenever you want.

19. She likes weirdos because weirdos are the best.
20. She trips up on her words so she gets it when you can’t talk.

22. She’ll watch bad TV shows with you.
