Aubrey Plaza and Jeff Baena have been together for nearly a decade and yet little is known about their relationship. The couple shares a common interest in the entertainment business as Aubrey is an actress best known for Parks and Recreation and Jeff is a film writer, producer, and director.
Over the years they’ve collaborated on a few projects and supported one another in their professional goals. One thing they are adamant about is not sharing information to the public about their romantic relationship even if they’re doing a joint interview for movies they’ve collaborated on.
Aubrey and Jeff stay privately tucked away in their Los Angeles home and have seemingly lived a harmonious life, but there are some aspects of their relationship that are unconventional.
15 Aubrey And Jeff Have Been Together For Almost A Decade
The actress and film writer began dating in 2011 and they currently live together. Although they have been together for almost a decade, they rarely discuss details about their relationship. Aubrey and Jeff have only done joint interviews to discuss the movie projects that they have done together. They often dodge questions about their love life.
14 Their Love Story Remains A Mystery
In the few interviews the couple have done together they have never talked about how they first met. Aubrey and Jeff also live together in Los Angeles but it’s unclear when they made the next step in their relationship to move in with one another. It is possible they just met in the entertainment circuit.
13 They Keep Their Relationship Mostly Off Social Media
Jeff is private on Instagram with less than 500 people following him. He likely made a conscious choice of how many people he let’s peek into his life, let alone his love life. Aubrey, on the other hand, has over two million followers. She’s only posted Jeff a handful of times for Valentine’s Day or his birthday.
12 Aubrey Is Jeff’s Creative Muse
Jeff has spoken highly about Aubrey’s acting abilities and it seems as though they push each other to do more projects. In an interview with UnderTheRadarMag.com, the film writer admitted that he was unsure about creating his debut film until Aubrey came around. “If I had made Life After Beth in 2003, I don’t know who could have pulled it off as well as Aubrey did,” he said.
11 The Couple Worked Together On Jeff’s First Three Films
“I’ve been in every one of Jeff’s films,” Aubrey told IndieWire in an interview in June 2017. “I’ve been there from the beginning of every idea because we’re together. We’re working on it even when we’re not working on it.” She acted in his 2014 film Life After Beth, his 2016 film Joshy, and his 2017 film The Little Hours. Aubrey was also a producer for The Little Hours.
10 Jeff Hid His First Script From Aubrey For Nearly 3 Years, Her Agent Told Her About It
The producer wrote the film Life After Beth in 2003 although he didn’t end up following through on the project. Jeff began dating Aubrey in 2011, but she still didn’t know about the script until 2013. “Aubrey had a meeting with her agent and they were discussing future projects, and he remembered my script because he represents Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who wanted to be in it back in the day. He brought it up to her, and she asked me about it, because we’d never really talked about it. As soon as she said that, I realized immediately that we had to make this movie with her in it,” he told UnderTheRadarMag.com in August 2014.
9 Aubrey’s Production Debut Was With Jeff
Aubrey made her production debut in Jeff’s 2017 film Little Hours. “For me, the moviemaking process is a magical, mystical journey, and having that input and control from the beginning was fun,” she told The Hollywood Reporter ahead of the movie’s release. “I like the idea of being able to affect the movie in more ways than just saying my lines.”
8 They Occasionally Take Breaks In Their Relationship
Aubrey and Jeff have been together for nearly a decade, but not consistently for that time due to their own separate career projects. “I think that one of the great things about our careers is that we are forced to be independent, take little breaks, go off and do our things and come back,” Aubrey told People in June 2019. The breaks in their relationship seem to actually make them stronger. She added, “It’s kind of fun. Nothing is ever the same.”
7 Aubrey And Jeff Are Big Homebodies
The couple may live in the spotlight of Hollywood, but they’re most comfortable at home with the occasional gathering of friends. “When we’re together we like hanging out at home. We’re happy having people over and playing Settlers of Catan or Battlestar Galactica. We’re kind of dorks,” Aubrey told Cosmopolitan For Latina in 2013.
6 They Haven’t Discussed Marriage Plans Publicly
“I mean, I don’t like, you know, talking super personal about our relationship, honestly,” Aubrey told MovieFreak.com in 2017. Although the couple has been together for nearly a decade, they are tight-lipped about their relationship. Neither Aubrey or Jeff have spoken about whether they plan to get engaged or married.
5 Neither Aubrey Or Jeff Have Commented About Having Kids
The couple seems very fixated on bringing their careers to the next level before bringing children into the mix. Aubrey once joked about getting pregnant, but only because she desperately wanted her character on Parks and Recreation to be. “I’ve been saying this for two seasons now: If they don’t put a baby inside of me, I’m going to put one in myself, literally, so that they’re forced to write it on to the show!” she told Vulture in April 2014.
4 They Both Went To New York University
Aubrey went to the all-girls Catholic school Ursuline Academy where she graduated in 2002. She later went on to study film at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts where she graduated in 2006. Jeff had the same major and concentration as Aubrey when he was at NYU although he graduated nearly a decade earlier in 1999.

Aubrey and Jeff have two dogs named Frankie and Stevie that they rescued in Los Angeles.

2 Jeff Hopes Aubrey Will Take On More Serious Acting Roles
Aubrey shot to fame when she starred in Parks and Recreation and often stars in comedies. Jeff thinks Aubrey has more potential than just comedic roles. “I think she’s sort of been pigeonholed into deadpan comedy. She has the ability to do pretty much any kind of acting. I think she’s incredibly talented as a dramatic and comedic actress,” he told UnderTheRadarMag.com.
