Aubrey Plaza: I'm bisexual

Aubrey Plaza "can't help" falling in love with men and women.

The former 'Parks and Recreation' actress has revealed she is bisexual and has a "masculine" energy about her.

Asked if women ever come on to her, she said: "I know I have an androgynous thing going on, and there's something masculine about my energy.

"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."

And the 'Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates' star understands her own LGBT fanbase because she feels like an "older gay man" at heart.

She told The Advocate: "I feel like I operate in an old-school way that only gays truly understand. So for me it's the ultimate compliment. My tastes are like an older gay man's, and I think that's who I really am.

"Like, I grew up obsessed with Judy Garland, and I was also obsessed with how much she meant to her following."

Aubrey, 32, says her family have always been supportive of one another's sexualities so there has never seemed anything different or unusual about same-sex relationships to her.

She said: "I have a gay aunt and a gay uncle, and I grew up thinking that everyone had a gay aunt or uncle.

"My younger sister is a lesbian, so it's just in my blood, I guess. She came out to me when she was 17 or 18, and for, like, a millisecond I was surprised. Then I replayed our entire life in my mind, and I was like, 'Of course! Of course I know that!' She's my best friend."

Aubrey played a lesbian character in 2015 movie 'Addicted to Fresno' and was pleased to have the opportunity to "make out" with Natasha Lyonne.

She said: "It was less about pretending to be a lesbian and more about portraying a human being with a massive crush on Natasha Lyonne's character. Natasha's a friend, and she called me up, like, 'Do you want to come do a movie and make out with me?' I have a major crush on her in real life, so it was fun."
