During a recent interview with Drew Barrymore, Plaza can be seen heavily flirting with the Santa Clarita Diet star, calling her "Mommy," begging Drew to feed her and put her to bed. Aubrey! This is in public!
"You're a dream mom. I wish you were my mom," she says in the clip, before ramping it up by about a million.
"Be my mommy!" Plaza smiles, "Feed me! Feed me! Put me to bed!"
Barrymore says "I will, by the way. I'm good at it too," and to be honest, we're not sure if she understands just how hard Plaza is flirting here!
"Nurture me. Nourish me," she says, as Drew tells her, "What I wouldn't do to put you to bed."
Plaza then says her coup de grace: "I'm a hungry baby," and gives Barrymore the sexiest sex eyes I've ever seen.
\u201cLosing my mind over this conversation between Aubrey Plaza and Drew Barrymore\u201d
Plaza is known for her off-kilter interviews, but this was more direct flirting than she usually does.
It's good to see the sapphic predilection towards mommy issues being represented in such a positive and public light. For too long, lesbians and queer women have been far too ashamed of their desire for a girlfriend who is also a mom to them.
Thank you, Aubrey, for giving every queer looking for a mommy domme girlfriend some media representation. We know there are lots of you out there.
Plaza recently starred in the second season of HBO's The White Lotus, where she played a jaded and jealous wife of a newly-rich man on vacation at the White Lotus Sicily. She's brilliant in the role and is currently one of the hottest stars in Hollywood.
Her film Emily the Criminal recently came to the streaming platform Netflix. Next up, she's starring in the MCU spinoff show Agatha: Coven of Chaos and in Francis Ford Coppola's upcoming sci-fi drama epic Megalopolis.
Hopefully, she'll find plenty of actresses with Mommy energy in her future projects.
