AMY ON WILL: Any chance—pretty please with a cherry top—she and Arnett will grace the big or small screen together again soon? “I mean, I love everything Will does,” Poehler says admiringly (but not gushingly). “There was no bigger fan of Arrested Development than me, Gob’s real wife.
WILL ON AMY: Fortunately for Amy, I wasn’t drinking anymore when we met. I’d been sober for six months. I had a lengthy love-hate relationship with boissons alcoolisées, as the French say. Amy and I were introduced by a mutual friend, but I’d actually known about her for a few years prior to that. I went to see her when she was performing in the Upright Citizen’s Brigade in New York. Weirdly enough, I first saw her perform with my then girlfriend and a good buddy. After the show, we went out and I talked on and on about how funny Amy was, and how amazing and fantastic and talented. And my girlfriend said, “God, you’ve got a crush on that girl.” “What? No! Amy who? That’s silly. [Laughs nervously.] I’m not going to marry her… [Long pause.] eventually.” I used to live around the corner from the UCB Theater and I’d go see her do improv all the time. That sounds a lot creepier than it was. I mean, I never cut up letters from assorted magazines in order to create a note for her. But I did eventually win her over with sex. I’m not gonna lie. And the fact that we’re both in comedy was just icing on that cake. [His cellphone rings.] Hey look, Amy’s calling now. [He picks up.] Hey, babe. I’m just finishing up here. Are you gonna be up for a few minutes? [Pause.] Really? [Long pause.] Really? [Long pause.] Okay, I’ll call you soon. [He hangs up. A beat.] Bitch. God, what a ball buster.
My Maxim Top 100 would all be my wife. 100 of my wife.
KATIE COURIC: Everyone on staff at Glamour describes your husband [Will Arnett] as dreamy. Does that make you vomit or does it make you proud?
AMY POEHLER: I love it. Are you kidding? When people think your husband is hot—right on!
KATIE COURIC: Is it hard to have two funny people in a marriage?
AMY POEHLER: No, it’s great. I was always attracted to funny people, and Will is so talented and funny. We are genuinely each other’s fans and we love what the other does. I don’t know a lot of other couples where you’re with your partner and you’re like, “I love what you do at work!”
PLAYBOY: How does a guy like you sweep Amy Poehler off her feet?

Will Arnett: That’s one of my favorite bits of the season.
Jason Bateman: I love the air sound too.
Michael Cera: Yeah, it’s a good air sound.
David Cross: And it also makes you think this is all… footage compiled by somebody-
Will: Yes, exactly!
Mitch Hurwitz: That for some reason, there’s somebody doing this.
Will: And a lot of people don’t know that for that air sound we micced up Michael Cera’s brain.
David: That’s rude. That’s not nice. From one Canadian to another!

From the moment we met, it was the greatest thing that ever happened to me. It was great. We didn’t know what we were doing, and all of a sudden she got SNL, so we kind of decided that I guess I had to move to New York; otherwise it wasn’t going to work out. So I moved back to New York and it was the greatest. It was great. Probably the best thing that’s ever happened to me is Amy.
