Rashida Jones is awesome. This much we already knew. The former “Parks and Recreation” star came to prominence on Amy Poehler’s groundbreaking, feminist sitcom, but she’s made a voice for herself in indie film — “Celeste and Jesse Forever” is a brave, challenging vision — and will soon step out on her own via the TBS sitcom “Angie Tribeca.”
But did you know about Jones’ upbringing? Did you know she had two artists for parents? Did you know she likes her “sensible clothes” but isn’t sure what brought it on — rebellion or parental approval? In an illuminating conversation with Sam Jones, Rashida Jones (no relation) digs into the backstory for a fun and thoughtful discussion. Check out the exclusive clip above, and watch the full episode of “Off Camera with Sam Jones” Wednesday at 10pm on DirecTV’s Audience Network.
