Rashida Jones: On Making Out With Zooey Deschanel and Rolling Around In Bed With Natalie Portman

Parks and Recreation star Rashida Jones is having a pretty fabulous moment. Aside from being on the NBC hit series and cohosting the GLAAD Awards with her costar Amy Poehler, Jones will next be seen on the big screen... making out with Zooey Deschenal. Anyone else jealous?

Parks and Recreation star Rashida Jones is having a pretty fabulous moment. Aside from starring on the NBC hit series and cohosting the GLAAD Awards with her costar Amy Poehler, Jones will be making out with Zooey Deschenal in the forthcoming film, Our Idiot Brother.

It’s be easy to get a little jealous of Jones, who hails from Hollywood royalty parents Quincy Jones and Peggy Lipton, but she’s just so lovely in this new Advocate interview we just want to see more and more of Ms. Jones.

Here are a few of the best highlights from her chat with Advocate writer Brandon Voss:

Was Zooey Deschanel, who plays Cindy’s girlfriend [in Our Idiot Brother], your first same-sex kiss?
Yes, on and off-screen. I was like, “Oh, my God, girls are so pretty and soft. No stubble burn! What am I doing with guys?” [Laughs] I haven’t dipped back since, but I was very appreciative of the experience.

Is Cindy your first lesbian role?
Well, I played a lesbian who was losing her heterosexual virginity in East of A, a movie that came out for a day.

You also played a feminist in If These Walls Could Talk 2.
Yes, so I was close to lesbians. I was lesbian-adjacent.

Much like in your popular series of FunnyOrDie.com PSAs with Natalie Portman and various animals.
[Laughs] That’s true! I really have been tiptoeing around it, haven’t I? I basically rolled around in bed with Natalie Portman and some pussies. I’m sorry, but that’s what was happening.

You also participated in Marc Shaiman’s Prop. 8 – The Musical.

That was probably one of the most enjoyable days of my life, and I’m happy that so many people saw it. I really wanted to be a part of pushing back on all the hatred that allowed Prop. 8 to pass. I have a lot of close friends who had to scramble to get married before that passed, and it’s just so silly. Celebrities or not, people should speak out and say what’s unfair. The fight for marriage equality shouldn’t be some secret, hidden agenda; it’s something everyone should know about.
