The Chatroom: Rashida Jones

The Writers | September 15, 2014

Part 2 in our new video series that chronicles conversations with women who are cooler than igloos

This series is sponsored by NARS

We’re back with round 2 of the Chatroom — a group chat so great that no one gets charged international fees despite one person having an out of network phone. NARS and their new Audacious lipstick hooked it up to help us get this TV dinner delivered straight to your lap, which is great because my own mouth is more or less a big red thesaurus just waiting to say multi-syllable words.

The series kicked a shoe off last week with Jenna Lyons — a woman who embodies what it means to be an icon: style, intelligence, wit. Where wit is concerned this week (and it’s very concerned, as in a furrowed brow/pursed lips-concerned), there is no match like Rashida Jones. She’s so quick you couldn’t catch her with a That’s What She Said joke if you tried. And man oh man did I try.

Watch the below and tell me: have you ever seen a woman deadpan with such flat-mouthed grace? I’m just not sure what makes her look better, though. That purple Angela all up on her lips, or my really, really bad joke. Let’s go with the former.

That’s what we said!

Still no, huh? Fine.

Next up: HAIM, the band.

    love this series!!

  • I am so glad this series has come to fruition. I know it’s kind of been in development for a while now — we’ve all come to this collective agreement as readers that more videos would be awesome, especially with awesome women! Ask and ye shall receive, and thanks Nars for gettin’ this gem of a show off the ground. You guys spoil us.

    I love, love, love Rashida. What a refreshing spirit. Also just have to put it out there her mama, Peggy Lipton, is one of my all-time favorites. What a stylish, sensational beauty.

    And cannot wait for Haim! They’re so L.A. it hurts, but in a good, good way.

    man these videos are SCREAMING for the some pre-roll ads $$$$…let me help you xx (love the series)

  • Amelia Diamond

    I want to be her best friend.

    • She probably wants to be yours, so….perfect situation!

    • wait this is so soo odd, but I had a dream we went to North Korea last night. Charlotte may have been there as well. Now THAT is friendship.

      • Charlotte Fassler

        ThAT is something.
        But was Rashida there?

  • Your joke was terrible, but the video was great! Thanks for making Mondays suck that much less.

  • These videos are great! Perfect length too

      • Florentina

        Grazie! The color looks really cool on you!

  • Interrupting cow! Too good 😀

  • Rashida is one of my all-time favorites. When I think of a woman who is equally as intelligent as she is talented, she is one of the first to come to mind. And because The Office is my favorite t.v. show, I have to appreciate that she’s wearing a shade of lipstick called “Angela.” With Jenna Lyons, Rashida, and the upcoming Haim sisters, it’s safe to say you guys are killing it with this series!

  • What a great interview!

  • So as great as this chat between to lovely ladies is, all I kept thinking about was the AQUA PIANO IN THE CORNER. Be still my heart.

  • Anika Zebron

    Loving “The Chatroom!” Super fun, maybe in part due to the bad jokes? 😉 Excellent guests so far, including Rashida. I hope it’s not weird to say I really enjoy her voice. It contributes to her cool. Great work everyone!

  • Yolanda

  • Yolanda

    Where are the jeans from?

  • maurenlartens

    So charming. This may be a ridiculous question but do you have any idea where that throw on the couch is from? I watched this 3 weeks ago and can’t stop thinking out that lovely couch and perfect throw blanket.
