As the daughter of producer Quincy Jones and actress Peggy Lipton, actress Rashida Jones must have plenty of celebrity stories from her Hollywood childhood.
In a recent interview with Playboy, the "Parks and Recreation" star shared a particularly fun Michael Jackson anecdote involving unsuspecting bystanders, MJ, "Webster," and plastic squirt guns.
“Michael basically grew up with us, so I have a million memories of him,” Jones, 35, says of Jackson. “He was definitely a little bit of an alien,” she says, also noting Jackson’s predilection for surgical masks.
Rashida says she felt like the notoriously youth-obsessed Jackson was her age, rather than 18 years her senior.
He certainly was fond of childish pranks. “Once, my sister, Michael, Emmanuel Lewis and I got in a car with Super Soakers and went by a movie theater and supersoaked the hell out of people waiting in line,” said the actress. “They had no idea they'd just been supersoaked by the King of Pop."
Rashida’s still a fan of pranks, saying if she could be anonymous for a day, she might show up to Disneyland or an Apple Store in the buff. “Streaking through a large crowd has always been a secret fantasy of mine.”
