Poor Elisabeth Moss. She’s been involved with two major life-ruiners: Fred Armisen (at least according to her) and Scientology (according to everybody). And, not surprisingly, the way she talks about the two is very similar. Both have had a huge impact on her life. Depending on her mood, she’s either totally vocally opinionated, or vague evasive.
So here’s the new game. “Who Is Elisabeth Moss Talking About?” Based on the completely-out-of-context quote, is Moss referring to her ex-husband Fred Armisen, or the life-ruining institution of Scientology?
Hands on your buzzers!
1. I’m not going to talk about it anymore. I said what it meant to me, and anyone can go and look at that if they want to know what I feel. But now it’s private, off limits.
2. This is something that really sums up where I am right now, which is owning my life. And being in charge of my own life and not being under anyone’s control. And to me that is something that is a very important thing I’ve learned, you know, to make sure that my life is my own.
3. Personal freedom is a very important concept.
4. I’ve never told anyone that. And I don’t want to waste any more of my life talking about it.
5. I think if there was something that I didn’t know and didn’t understand, I would probably feel as opinionated. You know how you’re opinionated about when someone breaks up? Celebrities break up and you just feel like you know what happened?
6. I think that I am very happy now. And, I’ve learned a lot, that’s for sure. I learned a lot about…trusting people.
7. (It’s/He’s/We’re) grossly misunderstood by the media.
8. Looking back, I feel like I was really young, and at the time I didn’t think that I was that young. It was extremely traumatic and awful and horrible. At the same time, it turned out for the best.
