Amy Poehler is opening up about her split from her husband of nine years, Will Arnett.
In her new memoir, "Yes Please," the 43-year-old actress talks about her painful divorce for the first time since the couple separated in September 2012.
"Imagine spreading everything you care about on a blanket and then tossing the whole thing up in the air," she writes in an excerpt obtained by Hello! magazine. "The process of divorce is about loading that blanket, throwing it up, watching it all spin, and worrying what stuff will break when it lands."
The "Mean Girls" alum says the split is "too sad" to discuss in detail, admitting that "getting a divorce really sucks."
"When you are a person going through a divorce you feel incredibly alone, yet you are constantly reminded by society of how frequently divorce happens and how common it has become," she continues. "You aren't allowed to feel special, but no one knows the specific ways you are in pain."
Despite their split, Amy commends her ex for being a good father to their sons, Archie and Abel.
"I am proud of how my ex-husband Will and I have been taking care of our children," she says. "I am beyond grateful he is their father, and I don't think a ten-year marriage constitutes failure."
The "Parks and Recreation" star has moved on, finding love again with comedian Nick Kroll.
"I have a boyfriend who knows how to settle me," she admits. "He puts his hand on my chest and tells me boring stories…On one of our first nights together I woke up apologizing for my snoring and he pulled out two earplugs he had worn to bed so he could hear what I was saying."
"It was one of the most romantic gestures I have ever seen," she jokes.
