Aubrey Plaza Isn’t Mocking You, She Thinks…

In an interview with the New York Times, Aubrey Plaza talks about how a lifetime of being sarcastic has made everyone, including herself, unable to determine whether she’s being genuine or not.

You’re so sarcastic that it’s sometimes difficult to tell when you’re being sincere.
Believe me, it’s a bigger problem for me. I don’t even know when I’m being serious or not. I can’t tell how I truly feel about anything.

Can your friends or family tell when you’re being genuine with them?
Sometimes. I think it’s just the tone of my voice that throws people off. Zooey Deschanel recently told me, “Everything that you say to someone sounds like you’re mocking them.” I was like, “But I’m not.” And she was like, “Even when you just said that, it sounded like you were mocking me.”

Well, maybe she WAS mocking Deschanel and she just didn’t want Deschanel to THINK she was mocking her so she could CONTINUE mocking her to her face. Because the best kind of sarcasm is when people don’t know you’re being sarcastic. That’s why I love reading the comments.
