Amy Poehler: Jon Hamm Once Told Me To Get My 'S--t Together'

While promoting her memoir 'Yes Please', Amy Poehler recalled a funny story with 'Mad Men' star Jon Hamm when the star was hosting 'Saturday Night Live' for the first time.

Poehler said she was pregnant with her first while rehearsing with Hamm, when she called her doctor's office and received some shocking news.

"I did the sketch, I was shooting with Hamm on Friday, and I called my doctor because 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," Poehler said. "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."

"So, juicy tears just like squirting out of my eyes. And it was like the punch line 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 shit together.'"

"And I laughed so hard, I probably peed myself," she laughed. "I believe that going through crying to laughing adds like five years to your life."
