Dating in Hollywood isn’t easy, especially after a divorce. Amy Poehler discussed her dating life with Howard Stern on Monday morning’s show about how awkward it was after she split with husband Will Arnett after 10 years.
She recalled how dating had changed from her single days. “It was new and weird. I hadn’t dated when there was texting. I got married in 2003 and all of a sudden I’m like, ‘Oh, right, now you text somebody.’ That was new. There were times when I was out with guys and I was like, ‘Oh, I think I might be on a date, but I don’t know.'”
That’s when the Parks and Recreation actress dropped a bombshell. She shared, “I remember I was at dinner with John Stamos. I think if you just are around him you are… handsome men are really something else. First of all, they’re so handsome. And John is…”
Stern interrupted, “Ridiculously handsome?”
“I was at a restaurant. We were having dinner and I was like, ‘Oh, maybe this is a date!’ But I didn’t know,” Poehler continued. “But I kinda blew it.”
The Golden Globes cohost was so confused, she didn’t even dress up for the event. “I remember thinking like, ‘Oh, s***.’ Like, ‘If this is really a date…’ I think I was wearing a Leslie Knope top. I think I was wearing a shirt from work.”
Things worked out for Poehler in the end, though, because she’s been dating actor Nick Kroll since early 2013. The couple seems to be happy and her life post-divorce is also smooth with Arnett when dealing with their two sons, Archie and Abel.
While we might not be OK with the fact that Poehler didn’t seal the deal with Stamos, she said she is fine that she “didn’t f***” the Full House hunk. She summed up, “I think everything ended up the way it was supposed to end up.”
