    Who is Aubrey Plaza? Is she the self-deprecating, sarcastic, antithesis of the cliché self-obsessed starlet? Is she the shy girl who just so happens to be wittier than just about everyone around her — that is, if she gets the courage to share the joke? Or, is she the barely disguised bombshell who's well on her way to becoming a bona fide Hollywood sex symbol?
