Will Arnett discusses breakup from Amy Poehler, cried for one hour
Will Arnett is speaking out about the difficult period when he separated from Amy Poehler.
Despite experiencing a lot of success in his career and on the hit show Arrested Development, Will Arnett was in the middle of a divorce from Amy Poehler which was very hard on him. He describes a time in 2013 when he was driving to the set of Arrested Development season four, “Just brutal, brutal, brutal. I was driving to the set one day and I pulled over to the side of the road and cried for an hour.”
The stars are in a better place now. In 2020, the former lovers appeared on a Canadian show “Stronger Together, Tous Ensemble,” and fans speculated they were quarantining together and rekindled the flame. But the two were co-parenting sons Archie and Abel together and have moved on.
Arnett says, “It’s been almost 10 years and my kids are so lucky that Amy is their mother and I’m so lucky that we’re such a huge part of each other’s lives, even more so than we were five years ago.”
Arnett, now in his fifties, had a son named Alexander during the lockdown with girlfriend Alessandra Brawn.
