Oh, and they were almost married in Vegas. During the production of one of her first films, Plaza says it was more than just a budding romance. “We still love each other and are really good friends,” she assures the host. “He’s just a strange little freak, and we communicate in the same language.”
Cera’s representative did not respond. Vanity Fair has reached out to Plaza’s representative for further comment.

Aubrey Plaza Scott Pilgrim
She appeared in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and Derrick Comedy’s Mystery Team, both of which premiered at Sundance in 2009. Plaza, who plays Julie Powers in the film, stated that “there’s a lot of weird, perfectly casted people,” naming Michael Cera and Alison Pill as two examples. The film incorporates well-known elements of its Toronto setting and matches the style of video game and comic book imagery. It based each fictional group in the battle of the bands plot on real musical artists, including Beck and Metric, with some of the actors also performing. The extensive visual effects were created using a combination of digital and physical methods.
It was a box office flop, failing to recoup its $85 million production budget. The film, however, received positive reviews from critics who praised its visual style and humor, and it eventually gained a cult following. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World has received over 70 awards and nominations and has appeared on several top ten lists. It was nominated for Best Visual Effects at the 83rd Academy Awards. It has been widely discussed as a transmedia narrative in scholarly analysis.
Aubrey Plaza Parks and Recreation
From 2009 to 2015, she portrayed April Ludgate on Parks and Recreation. Her performance as the deadpan employee earned her universal acclaim throughout the show, and she was dubbed one of the show’s breakout characters. Plaza plays April Ludgate, a jaded and uninterested parks department intern with a monotone voice. She eventually becomes Ron’s ideal assistant. The part was written specifically for Plaza, and casting director Allison Jones told Schur after meeting her, “I just met the strangest girl I’ve ever met. You must meet her and include her on your show.”
Aubrey Plaza Legion
From 2017 to 2019, Plaza portrayed both Amahl Farouk / Shadow King and Lenny Busker in the FX series Legion. Plaza hosted the 34th Independent Spirit Awards on February 23, 2019. Plaza plays Lenore “Lenny” Busker, and Amahl Farouk / Shadow King plays David’s friend, who is an “impossible optimist” despite a history of drug and alcohol abuse. The character dies in the first episode but reappears in the second as the main form and persona adopted by the powerful mutant Amahl Farouk within David’s mind.
Farouk later provides Busker with a new body, which he created by infusing Amy Haller’s body with Busker’s DNA. Busker was originally written for a middle-aged man, but Hawley met Plaza and changed his mind. Plaza, on the other hand, insisted on not having the character’s dialogue changed for her, instead choosing to play the character as both male and female prior to their reveal as the Shadow King. As a result, Busker began “making crude remarks about women and muttering vintage phrases.”
Aubrey Plaza Black Bear
Plaza produced and starred in the independent film Black Bear in 2020, and she also had a significant role in Happiest Season. Allison, a young woman, sits on a dock at the edge of a foggy lake. She then goes to a cabin and sits in a room, looking at a notepad. Plaza, on the other hand, insisted on not having the character’s dialogue changed for her, instead choosing to play the character as both male and female prior to their reveal as the Shadow King. As a result, Busker began “making crude remarks about women and muttering vintage phrases.”
