Amy Poehler Kind Of Sort Of Went on a Date With John Stamos

Monday on Howard Stern’s show, Amy Poehler told the host that she may have went on a date with John Stamos after her divorce with Will Arnett. She thinks. She’s not too sure because she had been out of the dating game so long that she didn’t know how it worked anymore.

Dating felt foreign to the newly single star. “It was new and weird. I hadn’t dated when there was texting. I got married in 2003 and all of a sudden I’m like, ‘Oh, right now you text somebody.’ That was new. There were times when I was out with guys and I was like, ‘Oh, I think I might be on a date, but I don’t know,” Poehler said. “I remember I was at dinner with John Stamos. I think if you just are around him you are…handsome men are really something else. First of all, they’re so handsome. And John is…”

“Ridiculously handsome?” Stern asked.

“I was at a restaurant. We were having dinner and I was like, ‘Oh, maybe this is a date!’ But I didn’t know,” Poehler recalled, noting that the Full House actor had asked her to dinner. “But I kinda blew it.”

Wait, really?! “I can’t believe I’m telling this story, but it’s Howard Stern, so there you go. We worked on a movie [They Came Together]. He did a little bit in a movie that I did and a bunch of us hung out. And then later on he’s like, ‘Let’s go get dinner. And it was fine,” said the former Saturday Night Live standout, who clarified that she “was separated” at the time. “I remember thinking like, ‘Oh, s–t. Like, if this is really a dateā€¦’ I think I was wearing a Leslie Knop top. I think I was wearing a shirt from work.”

Poehler is OK with the fact that she “didn’t f–k” Stamos after their dinner date. “I think everything ended up the way it was supposed to end up,” she said. Dating can be difficult due to her fame, but she said it’s easy to gauge a man’s intentions. “You just kind of weed that out pretty fast, but I haven’t really had that experience. I’ve usually dated people that I have been friends with, and I’m dating someone now. I have a boyfriend whom I’ve known for a very long time before we started dating, Nick Kroll.

If I was maybe sort of on a date with John Stamos, I would definitely not be OK with not fucking John Stamos. He’s so handsome. Though, that would definitely be the lie I’d tell myself while crying myself to sleep every night. I’m not even gay, but still.
