Feeling pressured to become more sexually experienced before she goes to college, Brandy Klark makes a list of things to accomplish before hitting campus in the fall.
→ She’s going from straight A’s to her first F.
→ On an episode of Off Camera with Sam Jones (2014), Aubrey Plaza revealed that she was seated close to her parents during the premiere and that her on-screen masturbation scene caused her much anxiety due to this proximity situation. She later stated that her dad enjoyed the movie a lot. “My mom was shocked,” she told Vanity Fair. “But I think she’ll be O.K. My dad was actually really psyched about it. He’s not like my dad in the movie – he’s actually really excited and not weirded out [by the sex scenes] at all. Which I think is weird.”
