Jon Hamm Once Told a Pregnant Amy Poehler to "Get Her S--t Together"

amyjon

Sometimes stressful situations bring out the best in people, right?

In her soon-to-be-released memoir, Yes Please, Amy Poehler recalls the time she first got to know her now-close friend, Jon Hamm, during Saturday Night Live rehearsals back in 2008. Poehler shared how she found out that her doctor had passed away shortly after doing a Mad Men-themed sketch on the live television show.

"I called my doctor 'cause at the end there you kind of have to call in every day, and the receptionist was crying. I said, ‘What's wrong?' and she said, ‘Oh, he passed away last night.'"

"I was due the next day. So it's my first kid, I'm in a Mad Men outfit, I turn to everybody and I hysterically start crying, and a really pregnant woman crying is terrifying. And it was like the punchline to a joke, it's like, my doctor just died and I'm due tomorrow.

"And Jon Hamm, who I am just getting to know, comes over and puts his hands on my shoulder and is like, ‘This is a really important show for me. I'm gonna need you to get your s--t together.' And I laughed so hard, I probably peed myself—I believe that going through crying to laughing adds like five years to your life."
