Rashida Jones and Zosia Mamet Join Glamour

Magazines love the hype generated by hiring famous people, and so in that tradition, Rashida Jones (Parks and Recreation) and Zosia Mamet (Girls) have been named contributors to Glamour.

Jones (who actually has plenty of writing experience) will pen a monthly column titled “Love, Rashida.” It debuts in March. Mamet’s column, “My Zo-Called Life,” is online now and appears in Glamour’s February issue.

In Mamet’s first piece, she explains why it’s helpful to accept your flaws. While that’s not exactly groundbreaking content, at least it’s better than Drew Barrymore’s ode to a breakfast sandwich.
