Aubrey Plaza, who stars in The White Lotus, has recently said that she wants to replace Jimmy Kimmel as the host of the 2018 Academy Awards so that she can be in the spotlight by herself.’
On November 19, Aubrey disclosed in an exclusive interview with Enews that “I’m really excellent at hosting, and in fact, I tried to get the Academy Awards to give me the hosting gig, but they didn’t take me seriously.” They already have his name—what is it again, Jimmy Kimmel? perhaps for the following year.”
Since Aubrey is known for pulling pranks, she was asked several times throughout the interview if she was really serious about her choice. Her response was, “Of course,” to which he retorted.
The actress, who is 38 years old, elucidated, “There will be no political BS, just good old-fashioned praise for movies and the wonder they provide to audiences.” “Everyone in this generation tells me that I am the equivalent of Billy Crystal, and you should know that.”
During this time, Aubrey may be seen working on the set of Francis Ford Coppola’s newest epic, Megalopolis, alongside the likes of Adam Driver, Shia LaBeouf, and Dustin Hoffman.
