    “But I didn’t write the thing and I didn’t direct the thing. I showed up, did my job, and got out of there. There are some things you just don’t have control over," she continued.

    "I’m not giving up hope for Riley. I think she’s got a bright future ahead.”

    Sequel! Sequel! Sequel!

    As for the person who did write and direct the thing, Clea DuVall recently told Elle, "Aubrey Plaza is amazing. She’s such a babe. I don’t blame anyone for wanting to see more of her, but I think the debate is less about the film and more about your philosophy on forgiveness and growth."

    "You don’t go through a hard couple of days after a long period of time, meet a stranger, and cut and run. Even if that person is Aubrey Plaza."

    In short, more of Aubrey Plaza in everything, plz.
