Aubrey Plaza ready to time travel

Aubrey Plaza and Mark Duplass star in Safety Not Guaranteed

Safety Not Guaranteed star Aubrey Plaza has confessed she really does believe in time travel.

The actress and comedian stars with Mark Duplass in the quirky comedy about a man who advertises for a partner to go back in time with him, and the reporter who replies so she can write a story about him.

Aubrey revealed: "I believe in spells, witchcraft, ghosts. I also believe in time travel although I haven't seen it with my own eyes, but am sure that it happens. If I could time travel I would go to London in 1969 and find Judy Garland and hang out with her!"

Safety Not Guaranteed was inspired by a genuine ad which appeared in survivalist magazine Backwoods Home in the mid-90s.

Writer Derek Connolly and director Colin Trevorrow penned the script, and created the character of magazine intern Darius especially for Aubrey after seeing her comedy show.

The 28-year-old actress said: "I was sent the script and told it was written specifically for me. I didn't know the writer or director but I really liked the story so said OK. The transformation that my character goes through is what really spoke to me."

Safety Not Guaranteed is in cinemas now.
