Amy Poehler reveals what she loves most about Aussies… after Inside Out 2 star shared her very relatable story of wild night out in Sydney

Amy Poehler has revealed what she loves most about Australians.

Sitting down on The Jess Rowe Big Talk Show podcast, the SNL alum, 52, explained why she thinks Aussies are full of joy.

‘Australia’s so good at joy. I have to say,’ she shared.

‘They do joy very well because they’re interested in these big moments and they’re outdoor people and so they have these giant endorphins,’ she added.

The comedian, who voices the character Joy in Inside Out 2, divulged her perception of the emotion.

‘Joy… you can only feel it if you’re actually where you’re supposed to be in the real moment. When we think ahead or when we think about what we regret we get a little bounced out of that state,’ she explained to Jessica Rowe.

Amy travelled to Australia in May for a special Vivid Ideas event at the Sydney Opera House. 

During her time in the country, Amy also shared a very relatable tale about a big night out in Sydney.

The comedy queen revealed she partied hard one night in the harbour city with Aussie country music star Jade Hurley.

In an interview with Pedestrian, the Parks and Recreation star said the night started innocently enough.

‘I went and saw [Hurley] perform some of his covers and hits and he was an incredible musician,’ she said.

‘We all got so drunk that we left our wallets at the bar — that’s how great it was! And we’re hoping to do something like that tonight…who hasn’t been there?’ she added.

But Jade Hurley isn’t the only Australian entertainer with which Amy has shared a beverage.

The Mean Girls star opened up about a surprising gift she received from Hugh Jackman.

The American comedian revealed Jackman, 55, holds a special place in her heart.

‘You know who was one of my faves, Hugh Jackman, an absolute prince and so talented,’ she told The Daily Telegraph.

‘He gave everyone in the cast a case of Fosters beer.’

Jackman was a guest host on the long-running American sketch comedy show in December 2001, and hammed it up alongside Poehler and Maya Rudolph.

Poehler added although she was no longer with SNL when Chris Hemsworth, 40, guest hosted in 2015, she heard he had a ‘powerful’ presence and his ‘essence remained’ long after he left.
