In the movie Emily the Criminal, Parks and Recreation star Aubrey Plaza almost completely transforms her appearance. The character that the 38-year-old actress, who is usually seen onscreen with dark brown hair, plays is a woman who is so desperate to get out from under the burden of tens of thousands of dollars in student debt that she engages in illegal activities in order to make ends meet.
Does getting away with murder in Emily the Criminal pay off? You’ll have to watch the movie through Netflix’s streaming service in order to find out. During this time, Aubrey has also been featured prominently in the second season of the critically acclaimed HBO series The White Lotus.
How much time does Aubrey devote to her personal life, considering how busy her acting schedule is? Here is what we know about Aubrey Plaza’s past relationships, as well as who she is dating at the present time!
Who has Aubrey Plaza dated in the past, and is she married at this time?
Fans of Aubrey Plaza, we apologize: The marriage to Aubrey is going swimmingly. Back in 2021, the actress made a subtle but soft launch of her husband on her Instagram account. She captioned a photo of herself with her husband Jeff Baena with the following: “So proud of my darling husband @jeffbaena for dreaming up another film that takes us to Italia to cause more trouble.”
How long have Aubrey and Jeff been creative couple goals until they tied the knot, you ask? Since 2011, the two have been publicly acknowledged as being in a romantic relationship.
Life After Beth and The Little Hours are both films that Jeff has directed, and Aubrey starred in both of them. So, before she dated Jeff, did Aubrey date anyone else who worked in the industry? This is what we currently know.
You may have heard of one of Aubrey’s exes from her previous relationships.
Do you know that back in the day, Aubrey had a relationship with Michael Cera? In a twist of fate, Michael and Aubrey both appeared in the film Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, in which Michael’s character is pitted against the seven villainous exes of his love interest (Aubrey did not play any of these roles, but she was also in the movie).
Between the years 2009 and 2010, Michael and Aubrey were an item. Aubrey revealed in an interview with RuPaul that they almost got married in Vegas on one road trip, but never went through with it (via Showbiz CheatSheet).
Aubrey also discussed the hilariously awkward attempt she made to get back in touch with an old Swedish boyfriend she had while she was an exchange student in Sweden (it was research for a movie idea, OK?).
Per Jezebel, Aubrey did manage to track down her handsome Swedish ex — and he agreed to meet her for dinner! in the company of his girlfriend. There are times when things just aren’t meant to work out! (Unfortunately, the movie that was supposed to be based on the idea that inspired this old friends’ reunion has not been made.)
Aside from her tumultuous dating history, Aubrey has received a lot of positive feedback for her performance as Emily in the movie Emily the Criminal. The movie is currently available for viewers to stream online; could this be a contender for Aubrey’s very first Oscar nomination? We’ll just have to sit tight and see what happens. It’s possible that Aubrey and her husband can turn her awkward run-in with her Swedish ex-boyfriend into a hilarious movie together while they wait. More comedy is always welcome in this crazy world!
You can now watch Emily the Criminal on Netflix in streaming video format.
