This is a pretty good interview with Will, but this is probably the first time either Amy or Will has opened up about their divorce:
DETAILS: You and Poehler separated last year, and now you’re in great shape. Jimmy Kimmel showed a photo of your abs on-air, and you joked that you were having a midlife crisis. Was that kidding around or a confession?
Will Arnett: It was probably somewhere in between. If going to the gym obsessively for eight, nine months was my way of dealing, then let that be my worst problem. Life is challenging, and I’d say that there’s no guidebook—but there’s about a million guidebooks out there. [Laughs] All people have been doing since the dawn of time is trying to figure out how to live this life and be happy. I’m no different. I’m 43, and I’ve found my happiness—which is my kids.
DETAILS: You’re twice divorced. Do you still believe in the institution of marriage?
Will Arnett: Certainly. I do. I do.
DETAILS: How has the dating game changed since you were last out there?
Will Arnett: Well, I’m not officially dating.
DETAILS: Are you afraid to get back out there?
Will Arnett: Yeah, I don’t know what you do. Do you put out an announcement in the trades? I’M DATING! It all seems very scary to me, to be honest. So I’m kind of keeping pretty close counsel right now. Until I … yeah.
So People magazine hired that idiot Patti Stanger who does that show on Bravo “Millionaire Matchmaker” to blog about relationships. She thinks she knows why Amy and Will separated (SPOILER: She gets it all wrong)
They’re good, mature adult folk—kudos to them for making it work as friends…
“I’d do anything for him. I’d shine his shoes. I’d pay a million dollars to shine his skates.”
What was your high school boyfriend like? What is your husband like now?
