Will Arnett's Emmy Interview Turns Awkward Fast When Interviewer Asks About His Wife


Will Arnett and Amy Poehler broke our hearts when they announced they were divorcing after nine years together back in September 2012. But apparently, the news about their split didn't get around to everyone -- and that made for a really uncomfortable moment for Arnett at Sunday night's Emmys.

While walking the red carpet, one interviewer reportedly asked the 43-year-old actor to dish on how he and his wife prepped for the award ceremony earlier in the day. His response? “I don’t really have a significant other… She doesn’t exist.”

Needless to say, it was a pretty awkward moment.

Once the show began, Arnett and Poehler were spotted hanging out backstage in the greenroom while watching the telecast. Cutest divorced couple ever, right?

Arnett has two children with Poehler, Archibald and Abel, and told Details magazine in May 2013 that the boys have provided him with happiness since the split.

"I'm 43, and I've found my happiness -- which is my kids," he said.
