In case you weren't aware, this is Amy Poehler.
After getting her start on Saturday Night Live, Poehler marched into all of our hearts as the noble, lovable, and obnoxiously positive Leslie Knope on NBC's Parks and Recreation. She's translated that fame into a force for the betterment of the world as an active ambassador for the Time's Up movement, equal pay for women, Autism Speaks, the Worldwide Orphans Foundation, and many many more.
So needless to say, when The Hollywood Reporter profiled Poehler as one of their 40 Most Powerful People in Comedy, she was not about to give some fluff-filled, cheesy interview answers.
Her friend and fellow SNL alum Rachel Dratch shared her answers, and OMG.
Amy Poehler was named one of the 40 most powerful people in comedy and her answers to these questions are genius:— Rachel Dratch (@TheRealDratch) June 14, 2018

Not that we needed another reason to love Amy Poehler, but these answers have given us one.
Amy is a treasure. Women, whether they're in comedy or any other profession, will be the FORCE to reckon with in 2020. We all need to stand together with full hearts & brave souls!— Intellitexan (@IntelliTexan) June 14, 2018
And I'm using that 4% for a future Twitter time of need!
I didn’t know it was possible to idolize someone more than I already idolize Amy Poehler, but then she gave this interview to the Hollywood Reporter and now I am deceased pic.twitter.com/yzNKfUlsd8— Shira ABOLISH ICE Wilson (@ShiraDWilson) June 14, 2018
She’s right about it all. Such a shame.— AGreenies (@ag2900) June 15, 2018
God bless Amy Poehler. Treasure her. Protect her.
