Amy Poehler Reveals Her 'Real' Speaking Voice -- and It's Shocking!
By Zach Seemayer
Amy Poehler has been keeping a secret from the world for years!
On Wednesday, the Parks and Recreation alum played a candid game of Truth or Truth with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, and the 44-year-old comedian revealed that she's actually got a very strong accent and the voice we all recognize is just a façade.
"What does your real voice sound like?" Fallon asked Amy when it was her turn to tell the truth.
After a moment of hesitation, Poehler revealed her "true" speaking voice, and it's unlike anything you could have expected.
"What do you mean? Do you mean when I'm speaking my native tongue? Or do you mean when I speak to my relatives or my people I love?" Poehler asked in a thick accent (which rapidly went from sounding Slavic to being South or Central American).
When a laughing Fallon pointed out that she sounded a lot like Modern Family actress Sofia Vergara, Poehler was clearly offended.
"How dare you!" She said, still using her over-the-top accent. "We're very different."
Then Poehler cleared her throat and seamlessly transitioned into her normal acting voice to resume the game.
Aside from showing off her hilariously ridiculous "real" voice, Poehler also opened up about her biggest fear: "Being mistaken for J.Lo, and then being asked to dance. And dancing better than J.Lo, and J.Lo being angry. I don't want J.Lo to be angry at me."
