'High Rise' star Elisabeth Moss thinks the older she has got the harder it is for her to lie and her job makes it even more difficult, because she is forced to pretend all the time
Elisabeth Moss can't lie.
The 'Truth' actress finds it almost impossible to tell tales the older she gets because there are less repercussions when she tells the truth and her job as an actress forces her to "pretend" all of the time.
She said: "I've just discovered the honesty bar. I don't know how an honest bar works, but I will use it honestly. I am actually not a very good liar. I don't know if it's because I do it so much in my job. I feel like acting is some giant game of pretend. I had a conversation with a friend the other day about how we have all become more honest as we got older. After a while you find that if you're honest, it's actually better and people are not going to be made at you."
The 'High Rise' star added she isn't afraid of growing old because there are many women in their fifties whom she respects and hopes to emulate in her later years.
She told The i newspaper: "I look forward to being 50. And I'm hoping that I'm as confident as some of the people I look up to."
Meanwhile, the 33-year-old star - who has been single since splitting from cinematographer Adam Arkapaw two years ago - doesn't "need" a relationship but would like to find love again at some point.
She previously said: "I almost feel like I've gotten too good at being on my own.
"I think that you get to a place where you don't really need a relationship. And I do think that is a good thing - it shouldn't be something you need.
"But, of course, I don't want to be alone my whole life."
Elisabeth was previously married to Fred Armisen for less than a year but the experience hasn't put her off tying the knot again, though it did teach her more about what a marriage should be.
She said: "I'm still totally a romantic. And it definitely hasn't changed my idea of what a marriage should be.
"But one of the biggest lessons I learned is that marriage itself is not the be all and end all.
"An honest, trusting, compatible relationship is actually the most important thing.
"I think before I was married I thought marriage meant you would have that. I now understand they are two separate things."
