Rashida Jones the heartbreaker!
The 39-year-old actress and writer recently appeared on Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig's new Apple Music Beats One radio show, Time Crisis, and talked about a schoolyard fling she had with "Blurred Lines" singer, Robin Thicke!
"His dad was on Growing Pains, and my mom was on Twin Peaks, on ABC, at the same time. So I met him at some ABC party," said Rashida, herself the daughter of legendary music producer, Quincy Jones, and actress Peggy Lipton. "We kinda flirted, and exchanged numbers. Landlines, obviously."
Rashida says this all happens when she was 12 or 13. Her and young Robin would talk on the phone from time to time, before she decided to ask him to go to a junior high dance with her! And.... Robin said yes!
So... why didn't they live happily ever after? Well, apparently... Rashida uninvited Robin to the dance, because of legendary R&B artist, Al B. Sure!
"I was like, 'I'm sorry, you can't come with me, because Al B. Sure is actually coming with me,'" she shared.
"He must've, to be nice, been like 'Sure! I'll come,'" said Rashida of Al B., considering the eight-year age difference between the two. "But he didn't. That didn't happen."
Oh, no! So she let down Robin, and then Al B. didn't even come? So who did she end up going to the dance with?
"I borrowed a Betsy Johnson top from my sister, and I worked the door."
Oof. Sorry Rashida!
On the bright side, you wound up being super talented and awesome!
