Happy birthday, Amy Poehler! Hollywood's favorite funny lady and one-half of the most enviable best friendship (hello, Tina Fey!) in the industry, rings in her 43rd year today. We've long admired Poehler, from her stint as Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update" co-anchor to her memorable role as Regina George's "cool mom" on Mean Girls, and of course, her starring and producer gigs on the critically acclaimed comedy Parks and Recreation, which earned the Massachusetts native a Golden Globe for this year.

Up next for Poehler? Her highly anticipated memoir Yes Please that is slated to hit bookstores late October.
