Amy Poehler: 'I'm a better dancer than J-Lo'

BANG Showbiz

AMY Poehler has joked that she is a better dancer than Jennifer Lopez.

The 44-year-old actress says she doesn't want to infuriate the actress and singer by showing her up because she is much more talented.

Asked by chat show host Jimmy Fallon what her biggest fear is, Amy quipped: "Easy, being mistaken for [Jennifer Lopez. 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."

Meanwhile, Amy is currently starring in new movie 'Sisters' with her close friend Tina Fey but the pair have insisted they would hate to be siblings in real life.

Tina, 45, said: "If we had grown up as sisters it would be like, 'We can't both grow up and do this. We can't both be on 'Saturday Night Live', that would be weird.' That would have been messed up."

Discussing their bond, Amy told Stylist magazine: "We feel like sisters.

"We've known each other for over 20 years now and a lot about being a family is having those experiences and remembering someone from when you're trying to figure out who you're supposed to be. Tina and I met each other in Chicago in the mid-Nineties when we were on the path where we weren't quite sure what we were going to be."
