"I fall in love with girls and guys. I can’t help it," Aubrey Plaza said. 

When it comes to falling in love, “Parks and Recreation” star Aubrey Plaza says gender isn’t a factor for her. 

The 32-year-old actress opened up about her sexuality in a new interview with The Advocate, and though she stopped short of using the term “bisexual,” she acknowledged that her “androgynous, masculine” energy attracts both men and women ― and she’s perfectly fine with that. 

“I know I have an androgynous thing going on, and there’s something masculine about my energy,” she said. “Girls are into me — that’s no secret. Hey, I’m into them, too. I fall in love with girls and guys. I can’t help it.”

Plaza, who can currently be seen opposite Zac Efron and Anna Kendrick in “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates,” also recalled playing a lesbian character in the 2015 comedy, “Addicted to Fresno.” 

The role of Kelly, she said, was “less about pretending to be a lesbian and more about portraying a human with a massive crush on Natasha Lyonne’s character.” As it turns out, that part came pretty easy to her, too. “I have a major crush on her in real life, so it was fun,” she said. 

Plaza, who has a lesbian sister, also called her sizable LGBT following “the ultimate compliment,” noting that she operates “in an old-school way that only gays truly understand.” 

“My tastes are like an older gay man’s, and I think that’s who I really am,” she said. “I felt it was important to inspire people to be their authentic selves by making a fool of myself and not caring what others thought. Even though I have my own insecurities, I’ve always had this mission of disrupting social norms.”
