Amy Poehler is getting candid about her childhood!

In a new interview, the 44-year-old actress confessed growing up in the 1980s was a “really tough time.”

“I was a late bloomer which I would recommend to anybody. That’s a tough thing when you get most popular, it’s all down hill from there,” Amy joked during an appearance on Today on Thursday, Dec. 10.

“I’d never even been to California growing up. I never knew anyone who was an actor or a writer,” Amy continued. “I didn’t know anybody famous so to be included in that fine company… it was really special.”
