Michael Cera gives an interview in the August issue of Playboy in which he waxes sarcastic about losing his virginity and otherwise interacting with the opposite sex. Cera, 22, broke up with his girlfriend of three years, actress Charlyne Yi, last year. Their relationship was speculated to be a publicity stunt for her movie 'Paper Heart' in which they played tortured lovers. Here are some excerpts, read the whole thing here.
On the worst pickup line he's ever had the courage to say:
"Hey, lady, those are some sexy-*ss extensions. I guess you won't mind if I extend to you a personal invitation to party with me one-on-one in a scary motel room."
On losing his virginity:
"To be honest I don't remember too much about it. All I remember is I had been awake for almost 86 hours, I was on the roof of a Public Storage building in what seemed to be a freezing rainstorm, and Crispin Glover was there with a disposable camera he kept winding even though it had clearly run out of exposures. My memory of it has fogged as time has gone by, and I've pushed it out of my mind, though I do seem to remember something about a plastic Academy Award for best grandson being involved. You might say it was my first brush with the finer side of show business."
On whether he prefers women who take charge:
"Yes, but they're hard to find. For example, when I go out to a restaurant I know every girl in there wants to come say hi and be sexually aggressive, but they're all so gripped by shyness that they don't even make a move. In some cases the shyness is so severe they won't even look at me."
His joking response to Judd Apatow and Jonah Hill joking that he's "irritating" and "a f*cking *ss":
"The truth of the matter is I'm too classy to ever come out and speak any truth about those reprobates, and they're both classless enough to knock on me and my problems. Between you and me--and I'll thank you not to print this--those two used to come in to work and quite literally spit in the face of crew members. I once saw Jonah pinch the prop master. They'd pour salad dressing in the coffee and sometimes even grab people and kiss them hard on the mouth. To me this sort of behavior in a working environment is deplorable. Then I participate maybe once in a game of throwing shoes at the on-set medic, and all of a sudden I'm painted as the villain of the whole production. That's the brilliance of Jonah and Judd."
