In a new interview with LGBT+ magazine The Advocate, actress and comedian Aubrey Plaza has revealed that she identifies as queer.
Asked if women hit on her, Aubrey responded: "Oh, yeah. I don’t mind. I know I have an androgynous thing going on, and there’s something masculine about my energy.
"Girls are into me — that’s no secret," she continued. "Hey, I’m into them too. I fall in love with girls and guys. I can’t help it."
Aubrey also reveals that she has a major crush on Natasha Lyonne (join the club), who she stars opposite to in Addicted To Fresno.
In the film, she plays a lesbian Krav Maga instructor with a crush on Natasha's character, and Aubrey said that it wasn't a great stretch of the imagination to play.
"It was less about pretending to be a lesbian and more about portraying a human being with a massive crush on Natasha Lyonne’s character," she said. "Natasha’s a friend, and she called me up, like, 'Do you want to come do a movie and make out with me?' I have a major crush on her in real life, so it was fun."
Aubrey, who has long been a fave of the LGBTQIA+ community, also spoke about her love for her LGBT+ fans, saying that it "makes sense" to her.
"I feel like I operate in an old-school way that only gays truly understand, so for me it’s the ultimate compliment," she said, adding: "My tastes are like an older gay man’s, and I think that’s who I really am. Like, I grew up obsessed with Judy Garland, and I was also obsessed with how much she meant to her following."
