I’m not sure why this strikes me as so utterly bizarre, but it does: Orange is the New Black actress Natasha Lyonne and Saturday Night Live alum Fred Armisen are apparently a thing. I don’t know how this came to be or why, and I suppose stranger things have happened, but there ya go.
From US Weekly:
The new couple spent the events leading up the 2014 Emmy Awards side-by-side as well as TV’s biggest night together.
The couple attended the Variety and Women in Film Emmy Nominee Celebration on Aug. 23 and were spotted having a super intimate conversation with one another and “were very flirty and talking very closely,” an eyewitness tells Us.
On Monday, Aug. 25, the duo attended the Emmys together. Hitting up fetes like the Governors Ball, AMC/IFC/Sundance Channel’s afterparty and Netflix’s afterparty. Lyonne, 35, and Armisen, 47, walked around the Netflix bash “chuckling” with their “arms linked,” another observer adds.
That’s some deep reporting there, by the way. “Arms linked”, “chuckling” and “talking very closely”? Dear God, I almost feel like I know too much!
Anyhoo, I guess this is whatever. I don’t think it’ll last very long, but hopefully they’ll have fun while it does. Fred was previously married to Elisabeth Moss (also a weird couple) and I always forget Natasha Lyonne isn’t actually a giant lesbo in real life given her NUMEROUS roles in lesbian films/TV series. She was last with some guy called Andrew Zipern, whoever that is.
