michael cera and aubrey plaza


Interviews have a way of going off-track in a hurry. Just ask Cameron Diaz, who would flee from her interview after close friend Drew Barrymore’s past struggles were brought up.


On the flip side, we’ve actors straight up lose composure, like Leslie Mann and Dakota Johnson when trying to promote their film, How to be Single. The same held true for Jimmy Fallon alongside Bradley Cooper, as the two just couldn’t keep it together throughout the entire interview.

In the following, we’ll take a look back at Aubrey Plaza and Michael Cera, promoting Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World in Toronto. Although they have a close relationship, it seems as though things got chippy between the two. However, fans are doubting how valid the moment really is, which some suggesting it was all completely staged.


Aubrey Plaza Wasn’t Expecting Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World To Have As Much Heart As It Did

Released in 2010, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World was a success in terms of the reviews. At the box office, numbers were tame, as the film brought in just under $50 million. The cast featured several stars, including Michael Cera, Aubrey Plaza, Brie Kieran Culkin and Chris Evans. Looking back at the film, Plaza was taken aback by how much heart the film had.

“Honestly, the whole thing surprised me. I had no idea what it was going to be like. I was definitely surprised by how much heart it had and how much I cared for the characters. Thinking back on Edgar and his other movies, they all have a lot of heart in them and I think that’s what makes them so good. I guess, maybe I should’ve not been surprised (laughs).”

In the same interview with Film School Rejects, Plaza would further reveal she wasn’t entirely sure about the script at the start, and had to read it several times to get a full understanding.

Not only was the film a success for Plaza, but it also made way for an important friendship and relationship.

Things Got Awkward On The Red Carpet Between Aubrey Plaza And Michael Cera

According to Plaza, the actress really hit it off with Michael Cera on the set of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. The chemistry between the two was immediate.

“He’s a very special — I mean, we love each other,” she confessed. “We’re still really good friends. He’s just a weird little freak and we speak the same language. He’s one of the funniest people I know.”

“He wasn’t someone I ever saw and thought, ‘Oh, give me some of that Michael Cera,’” she said. “I wasn’t like that. We just connected and after, it just happened.”

However, it appeared as though things took a turn between the two during a certain red carpet interview, which went completely viral.

Aubrey Plaza seems to lose her cool when Cera jokingly grabs the microphone. This leads to an abrupt end to the interview. However, it seems as though Plaza might’ve been ‘playing things up’, and that seems to be the general sense in the comment section as well.

Perhaps Plaza was trying to find a way to get out of the interview, and she found it thanks to Cera.

Fans Think The Entire Ordeal Between Aubrey Plaza And Michael Cera Was Completely Fake

Inside Jam captured the awkward moment at the premiere in Toronto of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. However, given all the comments, fans seem to agree that the moment might’ve been played up by both Cera and Plaza.

One fan stated that the interview was based off Plaza and Cera’s sarcasm.

“You have two of the most sarcastic actors, and people still think this was a real interview gone bad,” one fan writes.

Another fan writes, “There are so many levels of irony and sarcasm in this exchange that I don’t even know what’s real anymore.”

“This was a really really well scripted and acted interview. She was asked how much she hates Michael Cera and he conveniently messed up a shitty interview of hers? It was well executed and acted.”

Clearly, it seems as though the two decided to have a little fun, during underwhelming interviews.
