Please Stop Asking Amy Poehler How She Juggles It All

If there's one question that female actors (especially the ones who are mothers) get all the time, it's "How do you manage it all?" The answer almost always is that they don't manage it all. In fact, they — like the rest of us — manage a little bit at a time. And they have nannies. Lots and lots of nannies. Amy… » 2/07/14 12:40pm 2/07/14 12:40pm
