An exchange from the New York Times Magazine earlier this month, in an interview with actor Aubrey Plaza:
Can your friends or family tell when you’re being genuine with them?Years ago I would not have believed in the existence of people named Zooey Deschanel and Aubrey Plaza.
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.”
