April Ludgate, aka Our Favorite Character on Parks and Recreation, Has Some Serious Range One of the most underestimated performers of our time is Aubrey Plaza, who was on the cover of Cosmo’s Holy Grail Issue in 2022.
(Director Edgar Wright thinks she should be the next Lara Croft, which, YES). Let’s learn more about Aubrey’s equally awesome hubby while we’re still recovering from her great performance in season 2 of The White Lotus.
Jeff Baena, Aubrey’s husband, has been a long-time collaborator on several projects, including The Little Hours. His vibe is light and breezy, yet his body of work is impressively diverse, spanning from a zombie rom-com to a film about insane, swearing nuns.
Not much is known about his and Aubrey’s 12-year (yeah, they’ve been together a while) relationship, but interviews and social media posts give plenty of clues about their “adorable” pairing. Oh, and when they discreetly revealed they were married, the internet exploded.
But more on that in a minute. Come with me as we fall in love with the duo for how effortlessly they manage to be a power couple in Hollywood while still maintaining a low profile.
Who has Aubrey Plaza dated and does she have a husband?
We have some bad news for Aubrey Plaza’s many fans: Aubrey is happily married. She posted a photo of herself and her husband Jeff Baena to Instagram in 2021 with the remark, “So proud of my beloved husband @jeffreybaena for creating up another project that brings us to Italia to create more mischief.”
You may be wondering how long it was before Aubrey and Jeff, the ultimate artistic couple, tied the married. In 2011, they were recognized as a dating couple.
Two of Jeff’s films starred Aubrey: Life After Beth and The Little Hours. Was there anyone else in show business that Aubrey dated before Jeff? This is what we have learned.

One of Aubrey’s exes maybe someone you know.
What, you didn’t know that Aubrey dated Michael Cera back in the day? Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, in which Michael’s character battles the seven villainous exes of his love interest (not played by Aubrey, although she was in the film too!), featuring the two actors as co-stars.
From 2009 until 2010, Michael and Aubrey were an item. In an interview with RuPaul, Aubrey said that at one point on a road trip, the couple came very close to getting married in Las Vegas.
Also, Aubrey revealed that she had made the delightfully uncomfortable attempt to get back in touch with her former Swedish exchange student lover (it was research for a movie concept, OK?).
If Jezebel is to be believed, Aubrey located her dashing Swedish ex and secured a dinner date with him. Together with his lady. It just doesn’t work out sometimes! (The movie that would have been based on the idea that prompted this reunion has never been realized.)
Aside from her tumultuous love life, Aubrey’s performance as Emily in Emily the Criminal was well-received by critics. The movie is now available on streaming services; could it be Aubrey’s first Oscar nomination? What happens next is up in the air for now.
Who knows, in the meanwhile, Aubrey and her husband may develop a great film about her embarrassing run-in with her Swedish ex. More laughter in the world is always welcome.
The Netflix original movie “Emily, the Criminal” is now available to view.
Do we know whether they have made any appearances at any open meetings?
They’ve done it all, from press tours to red-carpet premieres. Baena is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for her role in The White Lotus, and Plaza may be able to bring her to the 80th annual Golden Globe Awards to celebrate.
To win, she’ll have to beat out Jennifer Coolidge (The White Lotus), Claire Danes (Fleishman Is in Trouble), Niecy Nash (Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story), and Daisy Edgar-Jones (Under the Banner of Heaven).
