We don't need another reason to adore Amy Poehler, but she's given us one anyway: She loathes selfies.
"The amount of Instagram selfies seems crazy out-of-control," the "Parks and Recreation" star tells Paper magazine. "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 [edgy performance artist] Karen Finley. Everybody's like, 'This is my [lady part]! I'm gonna put s--- all over me and take pictures!'"
In an endearing "get off my lawn" moment, Poehler reminisces about life before phones became appendages and duck face became the de rigueur pose.
"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," she says. "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, who admits she's "terrified" of having her young sons (with ex-husband Will Arnett) grow up in a time of oversharing, does her best to avoid getting sucked in, although she does have an inspirational web series titled "Smart Girls" (check it out here).
"I'm not a real social-media person. I'm not on Twitter," she explains. "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.'"
