What is it about Rahsida Jones?

Not only does the actress have a subtle comedic flare all her own, she manages to be the gorgeous funny girl that no one can help but love. The daughter of two legends (mogul Quincy Jones and actress Peggy Lipton), Rashida is refreshingly content being “semifamous,” not chasing the spotlight or referencing it with the faux woe-is-me approach of other Hollywood stars.

This month, in an interview with GQ to promote her new film, “Our Idiot Brother,” the Harvard grad and “Parks and Recreation” star showed a sexier side, modeling in a stripped down photo shoot.

Speaking on developing her own niche in the comedy world, the actress told GQ:

“I’ll never be the person doing a cartwheel and landing with my skirt over my head. That’s just not who I am. Every week someone on that show [Parks and Recreation] will tickle me in a new and fun way. Wow, that sounds really bad. Please put that next to a topless picture of me in GQ.”


What do you think of Rashida’s GQ shoot? Are you feeling her stripped down look? Tell us what you think Clutchettes- love it or leave it alone?

  • Ummm….*looks in thread* 0_0 Maybe the rapture should have came after all because CLEARLY humanity needs a serious do-over, like you guys really need to be started from scratch like a fresh batch of cookies. Whoa @ this entire thread.

      LMAO! i read some of the comments and didn’t even bother to join in. This conversation was a lost cause from the start. And the sad thing is, the article has nothing to do with what they are “debating” about.

    Why am I not surprised at the comments though?

    All I can do is read, and cringe, and blink rapidly.

    LOL @ this debate. One thing is definitely clear: many of us (“black” folks) like Rashida and think she is beautiful, but many of us don’t consider her as “one of us.” Whether she is half black or she has a splash of black in her, she doesn’t look like most of us (black folks LOL). And her experiences are different than most black folks. For instance, Angela Basset looks like a lot of us so she will never be cast as a white Italian character. She probably can’t always get a cab. Rashida has a lot more casting options, she can get plenty of cabs with no problem. Nothing against Rashida, but I’m just sayin’. LOL. It would be nice to see more stereotypically black-looking women in movies, on magazine covers, on runways,….in cabs. LOL.

    I wrote a story about biracial women. Go to smashwords.com and type in Piper Davenport and read it. It’s really good. Kudos to Rashida Jones for landing an interview with GQ!

    I didn’t even know who this woman Rashida Jones, was. I just read the article to found out why it had so many comments. Ok, now I know. Carry on…
