Amy Poehler Makes a Surprising Confession on Late Night: “I Don’t Care About Star Wars and I Never F–king Did”

December 18th, 2015 by Staff


Poehler joined Ike Barinholtz, Rachel Dratch, Tina Fey, Paula Pell and Maya Rudolph on NBC’s Late Night With Seth Meyers Thursday to promote Universal Pictures’ Sisters, in theaters Friday. It’s highly unlikely the group’s comedy will debut at No. 1 this weekend, thanks to Walt Disney Pictures and Lucasfilm’s Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (ever heard of it?), so Seth Meyers thought it might help if his six guests appealed to moviegoers by using Star Wars action figures as props. Barinholtz went first, speaking on behalf of Adam Driver’s villainous character, Kylo Ren, followed by Fey, who called PZ-4CO “PZ-4ZO” and decided to give it an Italian accent.

Poehler held a Constable Zuvio action figure, but she decided to call out the franchise. “I have read this guy’s name three times. I don’t remember it. I don’t care! I don’t care about Star Wars and I never f–king did! I’m tired of pretending! I’m tired of pretending! I don’t care about it,” she said as all her friends laughed. “This guy’s face is covered up because he’s so embarrassed that he’s got to go see Star Wars. He’s like, ‘Hey, man.’ I don’t know, just…F–k! I’m so sick of it.”

Dratch did her best Wookie impression while burying Chewbacca in her cleavage, and Rudolph had some fun with Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awaken’s new droid, BB-8. Speaking in a robotic voice, she joked, “I will never know the touch of a real woman. Please go see Sisters.”
