Rashida Jones Answers Playboy's 20Q

Rashida Jones Answers Playboy's 20Q

Rashida Jones unleashes her inner Playboy bunny in the mag’s November 20Q.

Here’s what the 35-year-old Parks and Recreation actress had to share:

On who makes her laugh:Aziz Ansari is so funny, though nobody thinks he’s funnier than Aziz. He’ll ruin a take because he’s laughing at himself. I love that man. The Inappropriate Yoga Guy from YouTube is such an asshole in the funniest way. I ­also love the guy behind the My Son Is Gay? video. Crazy fun.”

On acting on Parks & Rec, three movies this year, and having gone to Harvard: “It’s just who I am, I guess. I came out of the womb reading books and thinking about my next project. I’m a born nerd. There’s also this thing of wanting to make your parents proud.”

On her favorite memory of Michael Jackson: “Michael basically grew up with us, so I have a million memories of him. We were at each other’s house all the time. He was definitely a little bit of an alien, for sure, and when I was young, it felt as if he was my age, not 18 years older, but with just a little bit more pep. Later, we’d go out on the town together. He always wore those surgical masks. Once, my sister, Michael, ­Emmanuel Lewis and I got in a car with Super Soakers and went by a movie theater and supersoaked the hell out of people waiting in line. They had no idea they’d just been supersoaked by the King of Pop.”

Playboy is on newsstands and online on Friday (October 14).

    I didn’t know she knew Michael Jackson =O ….I was already shocked long ago when I learned she was a close friend of Babygirl….. lucky her. She seems to have everything. Must be smart, kinda famous (I’m saying kinda because where I live, not that many people know who she is…I actually don’t even know how I do) and she’s pretty. And she seems to have had wonderful people surrounding her throughout her life. Ugh I hate my life!!

    It would be nice if just one hollywood woman stood up for herself and said I’m not posing in that idiot costume. Everyone of of them does stupid garbage like this and complain they are not treated as equals, well stand up for yourself then at least people will respect you.
