Here’s what the 42-year-old actress had to share with the mag:
On Saturday Night Live: “SNL‘s like a factory, and you try to get your sausage made in time. Everyone’s experience there is so personal and subjective and different. I kinda came at a time when the women were really crushing it. And I had a lot of friendly faces supporting and helping me.”
On her hit show Parks and Recreation: “That’s a testament to Mike Schur, Greg Daniels [the show's creators] and the writers. The writing’s really top-notch. I dig shows where all the characters don’t talk like the 28-year-old writer in the room. Like, there was never a moment in All in the Family where Archie was aware of what an idiot he was, and wink-winked it, and said, ‘OMG.’”
On social media: “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.’”
