Elisabeth Moss Gets Candid About Her Childhood And Entry Into Acting


Elisabeth Moss started her career working with A-listers. In the “Smart Less” podcast, she recalled her first professional acting gig, in which she played Sandra Bullock’s daughter. That’s when she knew that she was cut out for acting after all. “I think my first real professional gig was this Lifetime movie called ‘Lucky Chances’ and I played a girl whose mom died, and my mom … was Sandra Bullock. I had to find her dead, face-down in the pool when I was like 6 or 7 years old,” she shared. “I was like ‘this is awesome, I love this. Let’s keep doing this.'”

Moss added that being a professional artist made sense, and “being anything else would’ve been weird” as she came from a family of successful musicians. Being cast in the film “Girl, Interrupted” was a pivotal career moment. She said, “There were all these great women in that, Winona Ryder, Angelina Jolie, Brittany Murphy, Clea DuVall…so that was kind of the one where I was like ‘oh, this is something I think I’m good at.'”

And now, she’s on top of her acting A-game and continues to find ways to challenge herself with her roles. “I’m never looking to make it easier on myself,” she told Vanity Fair. “For me at this point, it’s more about how do I make it harder? How do I find something that I haven’t done yet?”
