Amy Poehler And Will Arnett Split After 9 Years

After nine years of marriage, Amy Poehler and Will Arnett are splitting. The couple’s rep has confirmed the separation and a source has said that it is “very amicable.”

Poehler and Arnett, who wed on August 29, 2003, are parents to sons Archie, 3, and Abel, 2. Saturday Night Live alum Poehler, 40, and Up All Night actor Arnett, 42, have frequently appeared onscreen together, in both TV and film.

Their joint credits include Arrested Development, Blades of Glory, Horton Hears a Who!, On Broadway, Spring Breakdown and Monsters vs. Aliens. Arnett also guest starred in an episode of Poehler’s NBC smash comedy Parks and Recreation in 2010.

This was the first marriage for Poehler and the second for Arnett, who was wed to actress Penelope Ann Miller, 48, for one year until divorcing in 1995.

Poehler is currently nominated for two Primetime Emmy Awards: Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series, both for Parks and Recreation. Arnett is also nominated in the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series category for his role as Devon Banks on NBC’s 30 Rock.

  1. This is actually sad to me. I always thought they seemed like a good couple and they were never ones to seek the public attention or limelight. They also worked together really well, I especially loved them in ‘Blades of Glory’ – plus they recently had their second kid. I wonder what happened or if there is any chance of reconciliation

  2. i was very surprised by this as well. i always loved them as a couple. very few hollywood couples seem to make it work, and i really thought they had a real shot.

  3. I was on the same page with you guys. They were my favorite Hollywood couple – they just seemed like a lot of fun – and like they weren’t like other Hollywood couples. But that being said, all couples – Hollywood or not – have problems. I hope they can reconcile though. I really love them together 🙂
