Elisabeth Moss Says Ex Fred Armisen Is Not 'Normal'
Elisabeth Moss has something to say about her ex-husband Fred Armisen, and the funnyman might not be smiling at her remarks.
“One of the greatest things I heard someone say about him is, ‘He’s so great doing impersonations. But the greatest impersonation he does is that of a normal person.’ To me, that sums it up,” the Mad Men actress, 29, tells Page Six Magazine.
She adds: “I’ve never told anyone that. And I don’t want to waste any more of my life talking about it.”
Biting comments indeed, and Moss knows it.
“I’m probably gonna get a slap on the wrist,” she says. “But I’ve just been such a good girl. And sometimes you just want to be a bad girl for a minute.”
Moss and Armisen, 45, met in October 2008 on the Saturday Night Live set when Jon Hamm was hosting. They married a year later but split eight months after that, with Moss citing irreconcilable differences.
Now, Moss says, she’s loving being single. “It’s fun to go out at night and not know what’s going to happen,” she says. “I’m addicted and obsessed with my freedom in that sense. I’m having fun!”
She does want a partner in life – “A guy that can make you laugh is everything,” Moss says – but isn’t sure yet about children. “In an ideal world I can do it all,” she says. “But I think for now I’m too young to know.”
In any case, there’s a more pressing matter: season 5 of Mad Men, which premieres March 25 on AMC. “I am ecstatic with what happens this season,” Moss says. “I think the audience is going to be surprised. For me, it was very meaningful with what happens to [my character] Peggy.”
