Aubrey Plaza speaks out about Michael Cera relationship today after 'almost marrying him'
| Last updated
Aubrey Plaza has revealed that she once almost got married to ex-boyfriend Michael Cera after a cross-country road trip.
The former couple met on the set of Scott Pilgrim Vs The World, and dated for a year and a half before calling it quits. But, for a fleeting moment, their love gave hope to those 'awkward' people everywhere.
Michael and Aubrey starred together in Scott Pilgrim Vs The World - an cult-classic rom-com action based on the graphic novel of the same name - as Scott Pilgrim and Julie Powers.
Although Julie's crush on Scott was unrequited in the film, Aubrey and Michael had a very real, but very secret, romance on-set.
It wasn't until 2016 - six years after the film was first released - that Aubrey revealed they had dated.
Earrlier this year, the Emily The Criminal actress had been speaking to RuPaul and Michelle Visage on their podcast Whats The Tee, when Michael came up in conversation.
When Drag Race host RuPaul confessed that he though Michael Cera was 'sexy', Aubrey replied: "I dated him for a long time!"
When asked how long 'a long time' was, she said: "A year and a half."
Dropping yet another bombshell on the podcast hosts, Aubrey then shared: "We drove across the country after we shot that movie and almost got married in Vegas."
Speaking about how they met on set in Toronto, RuPaul asked her: "Do you think it was that thing that happens to people who are enclosed in a small situation?"
Aubrey joked: "Oh, like animals in captivity? Everyone wants to f**k each other?
"No, he's a very special - I mean, we love each other. We're still really good friends and he's just a weird little freak and we speak the same language. He's one of the funniest people I know."
Michael has never publicly commented on his relationship with Aubrey - or any of his relationships, for that matter.
But, earlier this year, comedian Amy Schumer accidentally revealed that her Life & Beth co-star was a dad.
Speaking about her experience with motherhood, she told Entertainment Tonight: "Michael has a baby, too."
She continued: "Is that public knowledge?...I just outed him, I just outed his baby."
Meanwhile, Aubrey is now married to her longtime boyfriend Jeff Baena.
The couple, who had been dating since 2011, never officially announced their wedding, but Aubrey made the news pretty clear when she posted to Instagram last year to celebrate the news that a film of theirs was going into production, writing: "So proud of my darling husband @jeffbaena for dreaming up another film that takes us to italia to cause some more trouble."
I'm glad these two are happy and everything, but I'll never let go of what could have been.
