The Parks and recreation star made the comments during a phone conversation with Haley Lu Richardson – who appears alongside Plaza on the hit HBO show – toInterview magazine.
The edited conversation was posted online Friday, Nov. 4, and includes details about the actors’ friendship.
During the interview, Richardson, 27, recounted their first meeting at the MTV Awards in 2019 when they were both presenting awards.
“And when I saw you, I felt overwhelmed with emotion because I was a huge fan of yours. I told you I watched repeated compilations of you doing interviews on YouTube,” she said, before adding, “Then you just looked at me and it looked like you were going kill me in my sleep.
“I met you because you were stalking me,” Plaza, 38, joked, lightly saying, “Just for all the readers out there, Haley has been stalking me for years. »
She explained how Richardson showed up at the premiere of Child’s play uninvited after meeting at the MTV Awards.
At the event, Richardson said she “befriended all of Aubrey’s friends so I could get closer to her life.” As a result, one of Plaza’s friends invited her to “Aubrey’s birthday without asking Aubrey.”
“So I showed up and I remember we locked eyes at the bar and you just went, ‘You,'” she added.
Plaza replied, “And it didn’t matter how many mushrooms I took that night. I knew my stalker had arrived.
