Amy Poehler may have a Youtube web series "Ask Amy" in which she answers young women's questions on how to survive their teenage years, but that doesn't mean the "Parks and Recreation" star is a fan of social media.
"I'm not a real social-media person. I'm not on Twitter," she tells Paper Magazine in a new interview. "I try not to read too much online because I always get my feelings hurt, even if someone's flattering you."
Poehler went on to give a few funny examples: "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.'"
But one particular part of social media that the former "SNL" star takes issue with: selfies.
"The amount of Instagram selfies seems crazy out-of-control. 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 Karen Finley. Everybody's like, 'I'm gonna put s--- all over me and take pictures!'"
Poehler recalled the good old days when cameras captured experiences, not became them.
"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. 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."
