Quote of the Day: Amy Poehler on Jon Hamm

Jon Hamm and Amy Poehler

"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. 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 s*** 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."

- Amy Poehler recounts in her memoir how Jon Hamm helped her get through her first pregnancy on Saturday Night Live.

"Justin Bieber showed up with like 20 guys. He had a guy holding a slice of pizza. A guy holding a Diet Coke. You're trying to fight through all these people to get dressed," he told Howard Stern on his Sirius XM radio show.

While Bill hated working with Bieber, he praised Justin Timberlake for his down to earth attitude. Speaking about the "Mirrors" singer, he said, "He's great. Also, the guy doesn't show up with anybody. Timberlake, it was just him. He's a real class act, that guy."
