The comedians and actors married in 2003 and divorced in 2016.

In a new interview with The Guardian, Arnett opened up about how he felt while getting divorced from Poehler, and the emotional toll it took on him.

During the separation, Arnett was shooting the fourth season of Arrested Development, and he described the experience as “almost excruciating…Just brutal, brutal, brutal."

"I was driving to the set one day and I pulled over to the side of the road and cried for an hour," he recalled.

But Arnett also said that, ultimately, working on Arrested Development was "hilarious and cathartic" for him to process his and Poehler's split.

Arnett also said that he understands why some fans didn't like seasons four and five of Arrested Development, which came well after the show's initial run. “You know, I think there were a lot of things in those seasons that did not work. We weren’t all together, for a start,” he explained. “But there were moments when we were together and I was crying with laughter, and it was worth it for that. Maybe it was like a very expensive reunion for all of us.”
