Rashida Jones is a woman of many talents – she's an actress, she's even written comic books and regular books, she's a producer and she even wrote an episode of Black Mirror. We began to know her and love her from the show Parks and Recreation, in which she played the role of Ann Perkins, who Leslie would shower with compliments like 'beautiful, tropical fish', 'rainbow-infused space shark' and 'poetic and noble land mermaid'.
The show celebrated female friendships, but it's often overlooked that Ann Perkins was an equally good friend as Leslie Knope. On Jones' birthday, let's look back at some of those moments. Here are five times she made us wish we had a best friend just like Ann.
