Props To Elisabeth Moss For Calling Fred Armisen Out On Being The Worst Husband

elisabeth moss ny magazineOn the cover of New York Magazine, sitting cross-legged like a child in school, Mad Men’s Elisabeth Moss looks lively and fresh…albeit oddly dressed. Who made the decision to have her wear overalls, shirtless and barefoot? It seems a little misguided, not that it matters anyway; Moss is one of those rare actresses whose substance seems to matter more to the general public than her conventional good looks and outfit choices. The media has been abuzz today based on some information she divulged. Though she’s been mostly private in the past about her personal life, TV’s Peggy Olson spilled some information about her brief marriage with Portlandia’s Fred Armisen.

“Looking back, I feel like I was a really young, and at the time I didn’t think that I was that young. It was extremely traumatic and awful and horrible.”

Moss remains likable and the internet seems to mostly be on her side despite her negativity. She’s in control of her own story and doesn’t come across as shady like she’s throwing Armisen under the bus. Typically when someone bad mouths an ex, they seem bitter, but not Moss. I suppose it’s because she and her ex-husband of eight months agree that he sucked. It’s not as though he doesn’t know he made for a scummy husband. Last year he confessed to being a “terrible husband” on Howard Stern’s radio show. It was no secret, but now Moss has corroborated Armisen’s self deprecating self assessment.

Mazel tov on your divorce.

A disgusting little part of me is left wondering what exactly Armisen did to earn the title of terrible husband. A bad husband is one thing, but a traumatizing husband is something else entirely. Does anyone have any insight? I heard he cheated with one of his SNL cast-mates.

In case you feel a little skeezy gossiping about an actress, Moss let the magazine know that she’s guilty of indulging in celebrity tittle-tattle and tabloids as well. She admitted to the magazine that she can ”enjoy a little gossip…photos of celebrities going to Starbucks.” Stars––they’re just like us.

      I had no idea that they were married. I wonder if she meant that being married to young was traumatizing rather than being married to Fred Armisen was? Or perhaps that divorcing was traumatic? It’s unclear. I’m sad if she is talking about Fred Armisen for her sake. That’s awful.

      In all fairness, she may not be talking about him being traumatizing, but the act of being married and divorcing when she wasn’t ready. Even from a partner you care about, divorce can be a traumatic affair, as can a marriage that you’re not yet mature enough for.

      He heavily insinuated on The Howard Stern Show that he was unfaithful, he’s the ultimate case of a geeky guy getting famous and being determined to take full advantage of the “perks”. Not that there’s anything wrong with being a player but he should have known enough not to get married.

      I say, “Poor Fred.” He is probably the traumatized one, just like I would be if I married a scientologist.

      not really the first time she’s badmouthed him. i remember reading an interview where she said that the best impersonation that fred did was of a human being. ouch.
