Parks and Recreation actress Rashida Jones has some brave things to say about famous women showing skin…and took to twitter to preach some TRUTH!
Rashida, 37, said on twitter (via US):
“This week’s celeb news takeaway: she who comes closest to showing the actual inside of her vagina is most popular,” the daughter of music producer Quincy Jones and actress Peggy Lipton wrote, along with a hashtag imploring her fellow stars to “stop acting like whores.”
Then she said more about her tweet…
“Let me clarify. I don’t shame ANYone for anything they choose to do with their lives or bodies…BUT I think we ALL need to take a look at what we are accepting as ‘the norm’…” the Harvard grad explained. “There is a whole generation of young women watching. Sure, be SEXY but leave something to the imagination.”
Then, in a sarcastic aside, she quipped: “Also, calling on all men to show me dat ass.”
I LOVE Rashida Jones, but I don’t quite agree that twitter was the correct platform to voice these kinds of views. Do you think it was brave or annoying that she was calling out her fellow actresses? THOUGHTS?!
Rashida Jones has a new man! She’s dating a fellow Harvard alum and writer Colin Jost.
Rashida Jones seems to have met her match in a fellow Harvard alum who just happens to also be a smart, funny writer. As revealed in the new issue of Us Weekly, the Parks and Recreation actress, 37, is seeing Saturday Night Live scribe Colin Jost, 31.
“She’s known him for a while,” a source tells Us of the Celeste and Jesse Forever star (class of 1997), who spent time with Jost (class of 2004) at Seth Meyers’ Sept. 1 wedding in Martha’s Vineyard, Mass. (Meyers’ bride is longtime love Alexi Ashe.)
“Rashida is into him,” the source adds. “She likes that he’s funny.”
Congrats to the couple!
According to BuzzFeed, Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe are leaving “Parks and Rec”!
The two actors will leave the NBC comedy halfway through it’s upcoming sixth season. Their exit will take place specifically on episode 13, as part of February sweeps.
Jones has played Ann Perkins, a nurse and Leslie Knope’s (Amy Poehler) best friend since the series began. Lowe has portrayed Chris Traeger, currently Pawnee’s City Manager, since the end of Season 2. Last we saw them in the Season 5 finale of “Parks and Rec,” the two characters trying to have a baby together.
This is the first major “Parks and Rec” cast shakeup since Paul Schneider, who played Mark Brendanawicz on the series, left in 2010.
No word as to WHY the two are leaving the show…. any guesses?
