Rashida Jones Talks Kissing Zooey Deschanel
By Zach Dionne Posted May 19th 2011 08:02AM
Rashida Jones graces the new GQ magazine to promote her summer indie 'Our Idiot Brother,' and it's no surprise her "hot lesbian make-out scene" with hipster dreamgirl Zooey Deschanel plays front and center in the article.
"I feel like I've come a long way from my first job, when I had to get mouth-to-mouth resuscitation from Rip Torn," Jones says of the latest buzzy lady-on-lady smooch-on-film.
Jones has been known to dabble in movies (see 'I Love You, Man' for further research) but clearly has no shortage of love for her TV gig on NBC's 'Parks and Recreation.' "Every week, someone on that show will tickle me in a new and fun way," she says. "Wow, that sounds really bad. Please put that next to a topless picture of me in GQ."
While Rashida is quick to use her wit in conversation, her turns on 'Parks and Rec' and 'The Office' have portrayed her as one of the lesser jokesters. "A question I get asked a lot is, 'What is it like to play the straight guy all the time?' And I'm totally okay with it," she tells GQ. "I'll never be the person doing a cartwheel and landing with my skirt over my head. That's just not who I am."
We would be remiss to publish this post without noting GQ dubs Rashida Jones "tremendously undislikable," and we heartily cosign.
