As we got from many lists and YouTube montages, viewing Aubrey Plaza Aubrey Plaza alone is a treat. But the eccentric persona of the actress is often just that: a persona. the White Lotus star is candid about dealing with shyness and insecurities under the public eye in a new Vanity Fair cover story.
“I’m more social, like, anxious and introverted than people expect, I think,” Plaza explained. “I’m as insecure as anyone, and I’m probably more shy than people think. But obviously the way I deal with that is, like, extreme behavior. “
From brilliantly deflecting some potentially compromising interview questions to deliberately shocking Hollywood’s elite, Plaza’s weirdness often results in the elimination of his own self-doubt: “You see all the colors of my psychological state reflected in any of these. [TV] interviews,” he said. “It’s a struggle for me every time. It’s a struggle to not quote-unquote ‘give the people what they want,’ which is – I don’t know what they want want – and try to have fun for myself without coming off like an asshole. I think it all comes from — I’m scared. I’d rather be a character. I mean, that’s literally what I do. “
But Plaza fans can still rest easyknowing that the deadpan, milk-snorting, devil-thanking “character” we know isn’t entirely fictional, but more than just an uber -exaggerated version of himself: “I tried to maintain some authenticity, for better or for worse,” he clarified. “That’s the goal. If all else fails, at least be true.”
