Aubrey Plaza Talks Masturbation, Watching Sex Scenes With Parents [Video]

Aubrey Plaza has made a career playing awkward characters like April Ludgate on Parks And Recreations. Well, it looks like the actress is just naturally talented at making people feel uncomfortable. During her interview with Conan O’Brien earlier this week,

Plaza made the talk show host and his sidekick Andy Richter squirm in their seats as she talked about masturbating in her new film The To Do List.

Plaza said that she had no idea what it would be like to film a masturbation scene. The actress said that she didn’t actually expect to get naked on screen and she definitely didn’t expect the room to be filled with people.

Plaza said:

“I read it on the page, ‘Brandi masturabates’ and in my head I envisioned a nice scene where you see my hand just go out of frame…But then when I showed up, the camera was mounted on the ceiling, I was in my underwear and there were a bunch of old guys smoking. You know, the crew guys!…and then I went and touched myself.”

The actor is best known for her television role on the family-safe Parks And Rec but the actress is starting to make a name for herself in the movie world. The actress recently lent her voice to the latest Pixar movie Monsters University and can now be seen in the raunchy comedy The To Do List.

Conan wasn’t the only person that Plaza was able to make uncomfortable with her sex scenes. The actress also said that her mother had a hard time watching it on screen. Her dad, oddly enough, was totally fine with it.

Plaza told Vanity Fair: Yeah, they’ve seen the trailer. My mom was shocked, but I think she’ll be O.K. My dad was actually really psyched about it. He’s not like my dad in the movie—he’s actually really excited and not weirded out [by the sex scenes] at all. Which I think is weird.”

Here’s the trailer for The To Do List.
