WATCH: Amy Poehler Is Sick and Tired of ‘Pretending’ to Care About ‘Star Wars’
The jig is up!
Last night (Dec. 17, 2015) Amy Poehler finally reached her breaking point. While appearing on Late Night with Seth Meyers alonside bestie Tina Fey and their Sisters costars, Meyers pointed out that their movie opens the same night as Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Knowing only one movie can reign supreme, Meyers gave the comediennes a chance to convince the audience to check out their movie instead, but they had to use Star Wars figurines to do so.
All of the stars of the movie played along, but when it was Poehler’s turn she couldn’t hide her true disdain of the sci-fi flick or the Constable Zuvio figurine. “OK, I’ve read this guy’s name three times. I don’t remember it. I don’t care. I don’t care about Star Wars,” she yelled before adding, “I never fucking did! I’m sorry. I’m tired of pretending. I don’t care about it!”
Poehler did her best to convince viewers to check out the comedy instead, commenting that the Zuvio’s face was covered because he was “embarrassed he has to see Star Wars.” But that only lasted a few seconds before she completely gave up exclaiming, “I don’t know! Who gives a fuck?”
