Amy Poehler Compares Hollywood To A Bad Boyfriend, Feminism To A Car

Amy Poehler Compares Hollywood To A Bad Boyfriend, Feminism To A Car

“Power sometimes comes down to knowing the vocabulary, figuring out how the system works and how to work within it. You need to believe that you deserve to be in the room once you get there. Directing, producing, and writing is the direction I’m headed into these days…I like to do things that challenge me and make me nervous. You learn early as an actor that creating your own material is the only way to have any control. Hollywood is like a bad boyfriend. You can’t stand around and wait to be asked to dance. I used to say that I wanted to make great art with people I love. Now I have an addendum to that goal: to get things on the air.”

Amy Poehler Is Too Sensitive For Social Media, Will Never Take Vagina Selfies

Amy Poehler Is Too Sensitive For Social Media, Will Never Take Vagina Selfies

“I’m not a real social-media person. I’m not on Twitter … I try not to read too much online because I always get my feelings hurt, even if someone’s flattering you. Like somebody tweeting, ‘Call me crazy, but I think Amy Poehler’s attractive.’ And you’re like, ‘OK? Thank you?’ Or like someone writing, ‘I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that I’d have sex with Amy Poehler.’…The amount of Instagram selfies seems crazy out-of-control…The idea of, ‘This is my face and everyone needs to see it all the time,’ is so far from the privacy that people used to seek. Now everyone acts the way ’80s performance artists used to act. Everybody’s Karen Finley. Everybody’s like, ‘This is my vagina! I’m gonna put shit all over me and take pictures!’…When I was a kid, you’d go to a party or a punk rock show and you’d have fun, and you’d bring a camera, and you’d take pictures, and those pictures would stay inside the camera…Pictures were an addition to the experience. Now the picture is the experience. If I’m hanging out with a friend, and they take a picture of me, it’s like ‘Ugh.’ I mean, I hate looking at pictures of myself. It immediately takes me out of the experience.”

Amy Poehler explains her social media aversion in Paper magazine. God, I can relate. And I’m not famous. Mean internet comments have made me cry and I almost never tweet because I’m too long-winded for 140 characters. It’s good to know I’m not the only one. As far as the selfies, I understand her stance, but often enjoy looking at others’ selfies out of sheer fascination, horror or even admiration. But she’s right in the sense that performance artist Karen Finley is best enjoyed live. For those of you who’ve never seen her, she’s famous for shoving a yam up her ass on stage and covering her naked body in stuff like honey and feathers. It’s quite captivating. [Paper Magazine]

Tina Fey & Amy Poehler’s First Promo For The Golden Globes Is Here!

Tina & Amy Have Still Got It

Oh, yes, it’s that time of year (again). Where did the time go? It feels like just last week we were advocating for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to host everything. So far we can only get them to agree to host the 2014 Golden Globes again. The first promo debuted last night during “The Sound Of Music,” although I missed it because Carrie Underwood’s singing was annoying me so I turned it off halfway through. Anywho, set your Tivos for Sunday, January 12!

Look at these two! A couple of comedians, just like their famous parents, Amy Poehler and Will Arnett. And is there anything more adorable than a couple of little brothers screwing around?

Let’s Take A Moment To Appreciate Abel Arnett

I know the week is off to a good start when new Abel Arnett photos surface on the web. I wonder if Amy Poehler and Will Arnett would find it flattering or creepy that I am so incredibly obsessed with their youngest child? He’s like a little old Irish man stuck inside a three-year-old’s body. I bet he has wildly entertaining stories and gets cranky when he hasn’t had his juice and does amazing monster voices and is incredibly proud of his farts. Anyway, click through for more photos of Abel (and his mom, Amy Poehler, and his older brother Archie, who is very, very cute too, just not ginger-haired)… [Photos: Splash News]
