Wow, what happened between Elisabeth Moss and Fred Armisen? The Mad Men actress has broken her silence about her 11-month marriage to the Saturday Night Live star -- and while she doesn't go into specifics, she doesn't exactly pull any punches.
"One of the greatest things I heard someone say about him is, 'He's so great at doing impersonations,'" Moss, 29, tells Page Six Magazine. "But the greatest impersonation he does is that of a normal person.' To me, that sums it up."
As for the details -- well, she's too respectful to go into it, saying, "I don't want to waste any more of my life talking about it." But she does provide a couple hints. When asked about the most important thing in a relationship, she rolls her eyes and replies, "Honesty, honesty, honesty." And when asked if still still keeps in touch with her ex-husband, the single star quickly answers, "Oh, God, no."
This is pretty shocking stuff to hear from Moss, only because she and Armisen were always so completely secretive about their relationship. They married quietly in October 2009, one month after meeting on the set of SNL; eight months later, they separated. And, of course, they were kind of a strange match in the first place: the beautiful drama actress and the oddball comedian.
Maybe it would have been more polite for Moss to keep her silence about the breakup, but honestly, she's a big star poised to be an even bigger one; she can only avoid the topic in interviews for so long. Now she's broached the subject, implied that Fred lied to her without actually saying it outright, and made it clear that she's moved on. Jennifer Aniston couldn't have done it any better!
Elisabeth Moss isn't the only Mad Men star who's getting candid this week. In a new interview with British Elle, lead actor Jon Hamm declared that "stupidity" is taking over the entertainment industry, and mentioned a couple notable reality stars by name.
"Whether it's Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated," says Hamm, 40.
Both Moss and Hamm are similarly forthright when it comes to their characters, Don and Peggy -- and whether there's any chance they'll eventually hook up.
"People are constantly asking if they're going to sleep together," Moss tells New York magazine. "I always get annoyed, because their relationship is more than that. And to keep that going over five years without selling out and having something else happen -- that to me is really interesting and rarely done well."
For those of you who follow Hamm and Moss' onscreen love lives as well as their offscreen ones, Mad Men returns to AMC on March 25.
