Spin Me Round is anything but your average travel comedy. The movie features a slew of curious characters who find themselves in some mighty unusual genre-spanning situations, and who better to pull them all together than writer-director Jeff Baena and his frequent collaborators?

Alison Brie co-wrote the screenplay and also stars in the movie as Amber. She’s a star manager at Tuscan Grove’s Bakersfield, California location. Her hard work and dedication earn her a free trip to Italy to participate in the franchise’s educational immersion program. Soon after arriving, Amber starts to think this could be the romantic getaway of her dreams, but then the situation starts to unravel, leaving her and her fellow Tuscan Grove managers to wonder if they should be questioning the company CEO’s (Alessandro Nivola) intentions.

With Spin Me Round celebrating its world premiere at SXSW 2022, Baena, Brie, Nivola, and co-stars Aubrey Plaza and Molly Shannon all joined us for a virtual interview to cover their experience making this whirlwind of a movie. Check out what they told us about that and the health benefits of peanuts in this interview!

Aubrey Plaza was interviewed with Style Caster and discussed that infamous photo of her and Michael Cera at a Chuck-E-Cheese. You can watch the interview at Style Caster.

Along with Black Bear, StyleCaster also asked Plaza about a viral photo of her and Michael Cera at Chuck-E-Cheese surrounded by fans. The picture has been circulating the internet for years, so, of course, we had to ask Plaza for an explanation.

“I knew this picture was going to was going to haunt me forever. OK. Michael and I were dating. We drove across the country together. We went on a very romantic road trip together. All I know is that we were in Chuck-E-Cheese. I don’t know,” she recalls.

As for why her face reacted the way it does in the photo, Plaza had this to say: “I could not believe the amount of girls that came over to our booth at that point. Michael Cera could not walk down a street without a little girls crying. I mean, and he’s so recognizable. But we couldn’t go anywhere. We were in the middle of America, just like walking into a Chuck-E-Cheese and just causing total chaos. I remember that moment very well. And I was like, I’ll never get to see that picture. But, man, what a picture.”

Aubrey Plaza was interviewed by comedy legend Adam Sandler for the latest issue of “Interview” magazine. You can read the full interview at Interview Magazine.

SANDLER: [Laughs] How many days did you shoot this movie for?

PLAZA: I don’t know. Twenty days, maybe? We had to go back and reshoot the first three days on the weekends.

SANDLER: Because of the bugs?

PLAZA: No, because of other shit. It was a real head trip, because I had to do those things over and over again. It almost felt like a sick joke.

SANDLER: What you did in the last 20 minutes of that movie—with the drunk of it all, and the emotions of it all, and the ups and downs—was so on the money. I’ve never seen anyone play drunk and have to go through what you did. I was so happy it was you and not me, because I could not handle what you do.

PLAZA: That was the scariest part, to play drunk for that many days, because we were shooting nights and I was not mentally prepared for having to throw my body around. I had tremors in my muscles because I was swinging myself around like crazy.

SANDLER: The other actors must have been like, “Holy shit, what she’s putting herself through is insane.” By the way, where are people going to be able to see this movie?

PLAZA: It’s coming out in the theaters, and then also on demand, whatever that means. I don’t think anyone’s going to go to the theater.

Aubrey Plaza recently joined the students from the USC School of Dramatic Arts community over Zoom, for the School’s Spotlight@SDA series. Some highlights from her interview are:

Although the pandemic-prompted isolation has brought along its own set of challenges, it has allowed Plaza time to pause from her regularly hectic schedule.

“I’m into tie dying now. It’s very good for my mental health,” Plaza said, leaning toward the camera to show off the tie-dyed shirt she was wearing.

Social distancing has also provided her time to take on a few new hobbies, and also a chance to work on creative projects off camera — including writing a script, producing two animated shows and recently selling a children’s book.

“I’m always scheming,” she said.

In her early days, Plaza admits she was a shy child growing up in Delaware, but theatre helped her from being concerned with what other people thought and out of her shell. “I guess there was this thrill of exposing myself in that way,” she said.

She became “obsessed with theatre” at a young age — getting involved in the Wilmington Drama League, directing one-act plays, performing improv and the like.
