Sometimes when celebrity couples breakup, no one really knows why, because a lot of famous people do a stellar job of keeping the bitter details of their separation out of the press.
But that’s not the case with Elisabeth Moss and her ex-husband Fred Armisen, as Moss recently sat down with New York magazine to reveal why their marriage didn’t work–and she didn’t pull any punches.
“Looking back, I feel like I was really young, and at the time I didn’t think that I was that young, said Moss. “It was extremely traumatic and awful and horrible. At the same time, it turned out for the best. I’m glad that I’m not there.”
In addition, the Mad Men actress said she’s glad the divorce happened early on in her life and not later, and she’s happy her and Armisen didn’t have any kids.
“I’m glad that it didn’t happen when I was 50,” she said. “I’m glad I didn’t have any kids, and I got that out of the way, hopefully. Like, that’s probably not going to happen again.”
When Armisen–who made a name for himself through Saturday Night Live— split from his wife in 2011, the breakup was extremely public, which was the absolute worst part, said Moss.
And she was always skeptical about relationship stories in the press, she said, but since her divorce she has no faith in them at all and hated the fact the media told so many lies about her. Plus, it really bothered her that so many reports got the details of her divorce all wrong.
“I always knew that the stuff that you read is not true,” stated Moss. “But when I was in the situation and you really, actually read things that you apparently said or did that are 100 percent made up….It’s just strange, simple thing of, that’s your heart they’re talking about, and it just, it sucks.”
