The Word: Will Arnett bulks up after divorce from Amy Poehler
“Arrested Development” star Will Arnett found a healthy and productive way to deal with his split from ex-wife Amy Poehler: hitting the gym.
“If going to the gym obsessively for eight, nine months was my way of dealing, then let that be my worst problem,” Will tells Details magazine. “Life is challenging, and I’d say that there’s no guidebook — but there’s about a million guidebooks out there. 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.”
As for looking for romance post-divorce, Will says he’s not quite ready. “I’m not officially dating,” he says. “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.”
Amy has moved on as well: The “Parks and Recreation” star is reportedly dating comedian Nick Kroll, according to Us Weekly. “She was looking for a guy like him,” a source says. “She wanted a comedian who ‘gets’ her.” Amy and Nick have been friends for a while, with Nick playing a recurring role on her sitcom since 2011.
