Amy Poehler Gives Commencement Speech in Hawaii [VIDEO]
The Harvard class of 2011 was treated to a hilarious commencement speech this week by ‘Parks and Recreation’ star Amy Poehler, who entertained the crowd with a number of quips and mock observations on life.
“I graduated from Boston College, which some call the Harvard of Boston,” she told the crowd.
Poehler also saved time to give the graduating class tips and advice, based on her own experience as a college graduate and actor.
“If you remember anything I say to today, remember this: Every single thing you see in movies is real,” she said.
“If I wanted to give you advice as an actor, I would tell you this: don’t do it. Don’t be one. There are too many,” she added.
