Transcript for Person of the Week: Comedian Amy Poehler
And finally tonight, we told you about an historic first this week. Amy poehler and tina fey, named co-hosts of the golden globes. The first time two women will do the honors. But you should know, poehler is already handing out something pretty golden. Really smart advice to help young girls live a big, brave life. Amy poehler is our "person of the week" and she sat down with abc's david wright. Am I enough? Do I fit in? You still ask those questions when you're 40. Reporter: Amy poehler knows how to make people laugh. Really congress? You held a congressional committee on preproductive rights and you didn't invite any women? Really? Reporter: But she also has a gift for making people feel better about themselves. Dear amy. What advice would you give to a young woman with body issues? Reporter: Her website, "smart girls at the party" features a popular advice section for teenage girls. I feel what you're feeling. And I think most women do. The internet can be a really tough place for a young girl. Reporter: So, she offered advice. Not as an expert, but as a big sister. The earlier you learn you should focus on what you have and not obsess about what you don't have, the happier you will be. Reporter: If you were 13, what would you ask amy? Oh, that's a good question. If I was 13, my questions would probably have been like, "i'm so flat-chested. What do I do about it?" To be honest with you. Reporter: And your answer now? My answer would be like, "enjoy it while you can. Being flat-chested is great. Clothes fit and it's amazing." Reporter: In comedy, too, sisterhood, has been important to poehler, especially all those "snl" skits with tina fey. Diplomacy should be the cornerstone of any foreign policy. And I can see russia from my house. It's a really nice feeling to have your friend with you during terrifying moments. I was so trying to make sure that we got it right. The country was watching, so, it felt very electric. My friend and I are both very tough ladies. Reporter: She was freg nant when they did that skit. Now, she has two sons. They keep me in the very present moment, which is really cool. Every time I get in my head, my boys are like, hey, hey, right here, let's live this moment now, right here. Reporter: What's the advice that you wish someone had given you when you were 13? The core of who you are is there. And you just have to kind of keep listening to it and your life will unfold the way it's supposed to. And so, we choose, amy poehler. Chef says there's power in looking silly and not caring what you do.
