Rashida Jones just might be the luckiest actress in Hollywood. In the new issue of Time Out New York, the actress reveals that she's gotten to work with two of her biggest idols: The Muppets and Rob Lowe.
Jones stars as a tough network executive in the much anticipated November movie "The Muppets," and she says sharing scenes with Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and friends was a dream come true.
"It was really, really f—d up in, like, a really good way," she says of the experience. "I kind of understand now why people freak out when they see celebrities that they love, because that’s how I feel about every single Muppet. My child brain was so confused by the whole thing. I oftentimes would speak to Kermit and almost forget [Steve Whitmire, who voices Kermit] was even there."
The brunette beauty makes it clear, however, that there will be no romance between her character and Kermit. "Listen, it’s Kermit and Piggy forever, you know what I mean? I’m not getting anywhere near that," she says. "He’s cute — I mean, he definitely flirted with me — but no. Kermit and Piggy forever."
One person Jones doesn't mind flirting with is Lowe, her love interest on NBC's "Parks and Recreation" and real-life childhood crush.
"I think I had to make out with him on the [his] first day of work, and it was also his birthday. Shoot, it was like my birthday," she says. "He’s lovely, he’s so sweet and it doesn’t hurt at all that I have fantasized about him for my whole life, basically… He’s, to me, probably the cutest guy that ever lived."
ANSWER: Kermit's Finger
QUESTION: What's green and smells like pork?
Rashida turns me on......
Go green girl! And where is the Professor and my favorite, "Beaker". The Professor should conduct some iiPAD experiments on Beaker.
How can someone who is black (ok, she's half white) be considered a "brunette??? Quincy Jones and Peggy Lipton are her parents, if I'm not mistaken. She is beautiful nonetheless, and looks just like her mom...
Better green than Sheen!
That is what is great about the Muppets: You are sitting in your chair watching an old Muppet Show and you completely forget that this is felt sewn together with a hand up its butt. RIP Jim Henson, your creation lives on.
Why do people think it's fun to humanize the muppets? It's beyond stupid. Like when Rosie O'Donnell "interviewed" Elmo every other day.
Can adults get back to talking now?
I can't believe a trival story like this mentions NOTHING about charlie sheen. Doesn't everyone know he is the ultimate story of all time for all people everywhere that ever existed? Charlie Sheen is to muppets as flatulence is to dryer lint!!!
People who humanize the muppets should shampoo my crotch.
That Rashida Jones is easy on the eyes, that's for sure...
The last paragraph makes her sound like a real creeper
This article is a gay
gafc – I'm with you – she's lookin too damn skinny. Eat a sandwich girl!
I see all the trolls are out for a walk today.
What the hell is WRONG with you people?
Probably prenatal iodine deficiency or else dropped on their heads as infants.
My ole lady died but I wouldnt mind banging on her fanny.
She is cute. Not saying i would sleep with her but i might stick my big to into her balloon knot.
She forgot that the sock on the end of a man's arm isn't real? And believes that it flirted with her?
This is why America thinks celebrities are morons.
"much-anticipated November movie The Muppets"
Much-anticipated? By who?
This is why America thinks journalists are morons.
Everyone knows Kermit, but nobody knows Heliotrope, so define 'real?'
"Rashida Jones just might be the luckiest actress in Hollywood." Really?! The daughter of Quincy Jones is the 'luckiest' actress in Hollywood? That sentence never should be constructed, even in this context.
that is exactly what i was thinking
Poor Jim Halpert. At least he has Pam as a consolation prize.
Awww...she got to work with her cwush...how sweet!
She'd better be careful, she could end up with a frog in her throat. Wink wink, nudge nudge.
LOL what if she met Bleeckie? that muppet on youtube and http://www.bleeckie.com. she'd be in for a real treat!
Sweeet! Funny all the gay comments. I'm guessing average age is close to 12. @ D – you NAILED it!
LOTTA haters out here too! I hope you all get sickle cell!
You hope they all get Sickle Cell? I guess you're not aware that you can't contract Sickle Cell, its conditions are inherited...
Make no note that in an attempt to admonish the gay comments, you managed to insult another class of people...
I must second that SncrDerelict. Ignorance should no longer surprise me, yet once in a while someone opens up and lets it fly. One only has sickle cell anemia when the gene is passed to them from both parents. They will be born with the disease.
Really sickle-cell? That's inherited only (moron) and then only in people with African heritage!!! That's just rude and ignorant. How would you feel if someone you knew had or died from sickle cell? Grown up!
Is it just me, or is Rashida looking a bit gaunt?
You mean you're looking gaunt, too?
^^ Asses ^^
I didn't read the article, but I think I'm gay.
I absolutely KNOW you're gay!
Gay people have more class than you.
Uww Rashida and Kermit, some puppet beasteality.
I'm pretty sure that's Amphibiality, unless you add Piggy in there, then that would be what I call a PAAARRRTAAY!
Ir ain't easy bein' green!
Obviously comedy and humor is lost on some people.
Wow. Such anger over nothing? Meds on the night stand buddy. Hopefully.
Right next to your mom's panties
And Daddys Steely Dan.
Loggie, those are MY panties. Put them back right now.
