On 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.
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.
