Amy Poehler Opens Up About Gen X Women & Avoiding Trump on Television

Amy Poehler is on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s latest issue, out now.

Here’s what the Parks & Recreation actress had to say…

On the ‘Gen Xer women’: “I’ve been trying to unpack my own deep institutionalized misogyny…I grew up in a time where trying to sympathize or empathize with the male experience was how I was able to be included in the experience.”

On the release of the redacted Mueller Report: “Women have been rightly and righteously furious about this administration and have been working together and bonding together just in an attempt to make sense of all of it.”

On actively avoiding watching Trump on television: “I can’t watch him speak. It’s so upsetting.”
