Will Arnett has his own versions of ups and downs in the industry. While he has found creative as well as critical success with many of his projects, his other films and series have also been less acknowledged. Awkwardly, his very latest project named Flaked failed pretty badly to impress his fans, audience and critiques. In one of his recent interviews, Will Arnett got bare nerved and talked very boldly and confidently about his defeats and frustration over the bad response surrounding Flaked. According to Will Arnett, he has created stars in the show and has poured a major part of himself in the series so he cannot help but feel very personal about the reviews pf the people.

He stated that many people have tweeted him and have shamed me for my career as if they were together with me for the last fifteen of my career. Will Arnett alleged that the thing that hurt him the most was the dismissal of his personal experience and how all those involvements have prejudiced his work.  Getting into the outlook of Chip on Flaked appeared to take its clang on Arnett as well, so much so that he even fought with alcohol one more time, after being sober since year 2000. It was a very tough and uncomfortable process for him and because he was putting too much of his life in there, he also noticed that all such things are beginning to affect his dispositions and his everyday behavior. He desired to tell a dependable and relevant story about re-invention but confesses that the venture took a gigantic ring on him. According to Will Arnett, his alcohol relapse was a big bummer but it happens in life all the time and for him it happened even more easily as he got used to drinking very easily the first time.

Arnett, who has two young sons with an ex-wife named Amy Poehler, originally vindicated the relapse as something he wanted to do to depict Chip in his series Flaked but soon recognized he was occupied with disgrace. He further said that he is not the cleverest man in the world, but he is still smart enough to see that this is not how he wants to live. The comedian said he is abstemious and sober again and repeatedly joins Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.
