Beauty Icon: Funny Ladies

Amy Poehler
Amy Poehler may just be the ultimate comedienne. Physically, she's like a smushed version of predecessor ditzy blondes like Carole Lombard and Goldie Hawn. She's got that girl-next-door quality, like Jennifer Aniston and Mary Tyler Moore. She thrives at playing professional go-getters, portraying Hillary Clinton on SNL and creating the sui generis Leslie Knope in Parks and Recreation. And like Lily Tomlin and Gilda Radner, she comes at comedy with a demented gleam in her eye and a total lack of vanity. Given that she's married to Will Arnett, late of Arrested Development, we have to assume that their kids are going to be the funniest people ever.
