The D Word: Famous Women Open Up About Divorce

In 2014, Elisabeth Moss told New York Magazine about her divorce from SNL alum Fred Armisen:

"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. I'm glad that I'm not there. I'm glad that it didn't happen when I was 50. I'm glad I didn't have kids. And I got that out of the way. Hopefully. Like, that's probably not going to happen again."

"Extremely traumatic and awful and horrible" is how Elisabeth Moss described her divorce from Fred Armisen in New York Magazine. It's been a few years since they officially split in 2010, and the Mad Men star joins a series of other stars who have opened up about the topic. While some, like Jessica Simpson, have described a certain mourning phase, others have brought a bit of humor into the mix. Olivia Wilde, for instance, got candid about her 2011 divorce to documentary filmmaker Tao Ruspoli by saying, "I felt like my vagina died. Turned off. Lights out . . . And you can lie to your relatives at Christmas dinner and tell them everything on the home front is just peachy. But you cannot lie to your vagina." With wise, thoughtful, and sincere comments from stars like Jennifer Aniston and Halle Berry, take a look at what famous females have to say about their experiences with divorce.
