The star of The Handmaid’s Tale Elisabeth Moss became an instant sensation after the show’s first season premiered. But having a hit show on her hands and beckoning megastardom has come at a great cost to Moss.

Living out of a suitcase

When she isn’t busy being 'Offred' – her character in the Hulu series – she is trying to keep up with several movie projects. Moss recognizes that she is sleep deprived and her personal life is suffering as she shuttles between Canada, California, and the Big Apple, but she would have it no other way.

 She has not even had time to settle into her New York apartment, but that's not even the worst of it.

Sad reason why she's too busy for love

The most unfortunate result of fame has been the absence of romance in her life. In 2009, she was married very briefly to the actor Fred Armisen at 27.


But it formally ended in 2011, and since then, Moss admits that she has had no time to date anyone really.

She loves her job and values a good relationship, but she simply can’t find the time to commit and isn’t interested in marrying just for the sake of it. She told Marie Claire:

I’m very focused on my work… so it’s difficult to find the time to give yourself to somebody.


Terrible first marriage

It’s no surprise that Moss isn’t looking to waste her time in yet another futile relationship. She has been vocal about how terrible Armisen was during their very brief marriage.

The star actress said, although he was a fantastic actor, he did not know how to act like a human being. And Armisen confirmed in an interview with Howard Stern that he had a history of being a terrible husband and boyfriend.


We do wish she finds the man of her dreams in her own time.
