Rashida has great taste

Michelle, Duana and I were moaning about Zadie Smith last year – so young, so brilliant, has taught at Harvard and Columbia, and will become a full professor at NYU in 2010. She’s only 33. Love her. Hate her!

We felt even worse about ourselves after reading this article on Jon Favreau, President Obama’s chief speechwriter, then just 26 years old and featured in the New York Times. He met Obama when he was 23, gave him a tip backstage when Obama was rehearsing at the 2004 convention (!!!) and then went on to work for him.


Jon Favreau is now reportedly dating Rashida Jones. She was involved with John Krasinski – a cutie in his own right, when he’s not being wanky with journalists – and has now bagged another super smart overachiever.

Rashida has great taste, non?

And she rolls with a great crowd.

Rashida is currently starring in Amy Poehler’s Parks & Recreation and is also tight with the Judd Apatow circle. Here she is at the premiere of Funny People last night. Amy meanwhile paid a visit to Letterman. I didn’t watch. Was she amazing?
