Being the daughter of Quincy Jones allowed for Rashida Jones to hang out with some pretty cool people in her childhood — like Michael Jackson.
Rashida plays 20 questions with Playboy in the November issue (out Friday) and was asked about her memory of Michael.
“Michael basically grew up with us, so I have a million memories of him. We were at each other’s houses all the time,” the Parks and Recreation star shares. “He was definitely a little bit of an alien, for sure, and when I was young, it felt as if he was my age, not 18 years older, but with just a little bit more pep.”
“Later, we’d go out on the town together. He always wore those surgical masks. Once, my sister, Michael, Emmanuel Lewis and I got in a car with Super Soakers and went by a movie theater and supersoaked the hell out of people waiting in line. They had no idea they’d just been supersoaked by the King of Pop.”
We bet that memory has stuck with some and they’re thrilled now though!
Another question Rashida was asked was regarding her love life. Since she’s single, does she get hit on by men a lot?
“On New Year’s Eve this guy came up to me really drunk and was like, “Oh my God, I love you. This is the best night of my life. I can’t believe I’m seeing you. This is amazing.” Then he goes, “What’s your name?” So that didn’t work out,” she explains. “We’re not getting married.”
