Actress, writer, producer and director Amy Poehler writes this frank, comic memoir. Known from her years on Saturday Night Live and her hosting awards shows with Tina Fey, Poehler is acerbic and introspective. She writes about the culture of Hollywood and the effect it has on all who are in it.
“Being considered beautiful can be tough. I know this because I work in Hollywood, which is filled with the most conventionally beautiful people in the world. Beautiful people can get objectified and underestimated. They didn’t do anything to earn their genes so they have to struggle to prove they are more than their hot bods.” (p. 21)
