Like the rest of the world, Aubrey Plaza just really loves Jeff Goldblum but that adoration almost got her into trouble on a summer trip to London.
The “Legion” star was enamoured by the giant statue of a semi-nude Goldblum, which popped up in London in July next to the famous Tower Bridge.
Now, footage posted online shows the 34-year-old actress jumping over the velvet rope fence and wrapping her arms around the gigantic Goldblum.
A member of the security staff is seen trying to drag Plaza away from the statue, a task which proves rather difficult. After trying to straddle Goldblum’s leg, the former “Parks & Recreation” star is eventually chased off the scene.
According to one Twitter user, the stunt was orchestrated:
The statue was commissioned by NowTV to commemorate the 25th anniversary of “Jurassic Park”. The 25-foot, 330-pound inflatable depicts Goldblum as his iconic character, Dr. Ian Malcolm, who became the movie’s unlikely sex symbol.
“It was lovely, I liked that whole statue,” Goldblum told the Associated Press in September. “I don’t know what it looked like in the flesh, or in the concrete, I didn’t see it. I saw pictures of it.”
“I think they took it down, but isn’t it making a tour of some kind? Like the treasures of the tomb of King Tutankhamun?” he added.
