Amy Poehler Reveals Some Freaky Shit About Your Boyfriend Adam Scott


Parks and Recreation‘s Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) and Ben Wyatt (your boyfriend Adam Scott) are quite possibly the cutest couple on TV right now. We ‘ship them hard and we ‘ship them proud, which is why it’s great to hear that the two, in addition to being so darling to one another on screen, seem to get along just as well off camera. (Without the romance, I’m afraid — your boyfriend Adam Scott is quite devoted to his wife and kids.) New York Magazine recently conducted an interview with Poehler in which they asked her to reveal some things about the real man behind her onscreen boyf. While she said some pretty sweet stuff, she also (jokingly) dropped some real bombshells. Like did you know Adam Scott is a flasher who’s currently working as a male escort?

Poehler quips:

“There’s a lot of things people don’t know about Adam. He loves taking off his pants. Just takes them down all the time. Literally, he cannot keep his pants on. Like, we’ll be doing a scene and we’ll look down and Adam won’t have any pants on, and we’ll be like, ‘Adam! We’re in Senator Boxer’s office! Put your pants back on!’ And he’s like, ‘Oh.'”

On Adam being a real actor‘s actor:

“He loves to talk about acting. And he’ll just, in the middle of the scene, stop and say, ‘Wait a minute, I need to get back to the craft.’ And I’ll say, ‘Okay man, whatever you need.’ And he’ll just, like, pace around a room or he’ll go punch a wall. You know, a lot of people don’t know that he used to be an acting teacher. He taught in his basement for, like, fifteen years before he made it in Hollywood – or ‘Holly Weird’, as he likes to call it. And man, he just loves to talk about craft, process. Every morning, you’ll be, like, ‘Hey, Adam!’ And he’ll be like, ‘No, no, no.’ I’ll be, like, ‘Oh, sorry. Hey, Ben.'”

Mutual friend Jon Hamm interjected to shed some light on Scott’s “down there” situation:

“He’s bipenal, six toes on his right foot. That’s kind of creepy, but it makes him an excellent swimmer. He tends to swim in circles to the left. He has an overpowering kick with his right foot. But the weird thing is that his two penises act like a rudder and he can steer with those.”

Poehler closed out with this:

“I feel confident that Adam can handle my jokes. But I’ll give you a genuine quote. Adam is such a rare combination of a tremendously real actor and a very facile, comedic performer, so he can go really fun and funny and big, and likes to be really stupid, but in the real moments in between those moments, which I feel proud of that we have on our show, he’s just really such a good actor … He is really generous and kind and like a real pro. And by ‘pro’ I mean prostitute. But he’s such a wonderful, kind, and funny male prostitute.”

Aww, these guys!
