Will Arnett - Will Arnett Hit The Gym To Cope With Amy Poehler Split

Actor Will Arnett became an obsessive gym rat after his split from wife Amy Poehler in a bid to cope with the breakdown of their nine-year marriage.

The actors, who are parents to young sons Archie and Abel, separated in September (12) and the Arrested Development hunk reveals he distracted himself from the pain by engaging in intense workouts.

Arnett, who has been sober since kicking his alcohol habit in 1999, tells Details magazine, "If going to the gym obsessively for eight, nine months was my way of dealing, then let that be my worst problem. Life is challenging... All people have been doing since the dawn of time is trying to figure out how to live this life and be happy. I'm no different. I'm 43, and I've found my happiness - which is my kids."

Parks and Recreation star Poehler has reportedly moved on from her estranged husband by romancing comedian Nick Kroll, but Arnett admits he not yet ready to begin dating again.

He adds, "I'm not officially dating. I don't really know what to do. Do you put an announcement in the trades (papers)? I'm dating! It all seems very scary to me, to be honest. So I'm kind of keeping pretty close counsel right now."
