Rashida Jones and Zooey Deschanel in Our Idiot Brother

Funny lady Rashida Jones, who currently stars as the relationship challenged Ann Perkins on Parks and Recreation, and the forthcoming film Our Idiot Brother, sat down with The Advocate to talk about kissing Zooey Deschanel and her Ricky Martin crush.

Here is what she had to say:

On her crush, Ricky Martin, coming out: I took it pretty personally. I felt betrayed. No, I was actually really happy, because I know it’s incredibly difficult for a pop star to come out — especially as a Latino, a community where there can be a lot of homophobia. What he did was incredibly brave. But he’s a hottie, and I like thinking he still wants to have sex with me.

On her first same-sex kiss with Zooey Deschanel: Yes, on and off-screen. I was like, “Oh, my God, girls are so pretty and soft. No stubble burn! What am I doing with guys?” [Laughs] I haven’t dipped back since, but I was very appreciative of the experience.

Speaking of good-looking guys, you also appear in this summer’s Friends with Benefits, which, according to Mila Kunis, had no shortage of nudity on set. Did you happen to see Justin Timberlake’s junk?: Sadly, I did not. I have a tiny, tiny part in that movie, so I was nowhere near him or his junk. I missed out on seeing his junk in two movies now. I really need to get on that.
