Amy Poehler felt like having a martini and a cigarette like they did on television in the old days while visiting Jay Leno last night.
The “Parks and Recreation” star, who just announced the end of her marriage to actor Will Arnett weeks ago, appeared on Leno’s show to discuss her career and her sixth Emmy nomination.
The 41-year old actress joked about meeting her comic peers backstage at the Emmy Awards in what she calls the “loser’s lounge”.
Poehler stated, “Its a fancy losers lounge. Carell hasn’t won”, she said of her friend Steve Carell.
Amy Poehler appeared her usual bubbly and happy self even though her personal life has been rough lately.
But, Poehler didn’t discuss her split from the “Arrested Development” actor.
The funny couple started dating in 2000, a year before Poehler landed her spot on “Saturday Night Live” and Arnett’s “Arrested Development” role kept him across the country.
Poehler and Arnett married on August 29, 2003, and have two sons – Archie, three, and Abel, two.
Amy and Will played brother and sister in the 2007 Will Ferrell movie “Blades of Glory” and Arnett has appeared on Poehler’s NBC show “Parks and Recreation.”
