19-Year-Old Elisabeth Moss Had a Sketchy NYC Apartment Situation


>>James: THAT WAS A CLIP FROM
“THE KITCHEN,” IN THEATERS EVERYWHERE THIS FRIDAY. CONGRATULATIONS ON THE MOVIE! ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
EVERYONE IS SO VERY EXCITED TO SEE IT. TELL US FOR ANYONE WHO DOESN’T
KNOW WHAT THE MOVIE IS ABOUT AND WHO YOU PLAY.>>IT IS ABOUT THREE WOMEN WHOSE
PARTNERS ARE ALL IN THE MOB AND RUN THE IRISH MAFIA AND THEY ALL
GET PICKED UP AND TAKEN OFF TO PRISON, AND ME, MELISSA AND
TIFFANY HAVE TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO SURVIVE AND PUT FOOD ON THE
TABLE AND PAY THE RENT AND WE FIGURE OUT A WAY TO DO THAT AND
TAKE OVER OUR OWN MAFIA.>>James: THE FILM IS CALLED
“THE KITCHEN” BECAUSE IT’S SET IN “HELL’S KITCHEN” IN NEW YORK. YOUR FIRST APARTMENT WAS IN
“HELL’S KITCHEN”?>>IT WAS, ON 46th BETWEEN THE
EIGHTH AND NINTH OR NINTH AND TENTH, RIGHT NEXT TO JOELLEENS. MY MOM IS LIKE WHY SIT CALLED
“HELL’S KITCHEN”? I SAID LOTSOV RESTAURANTS, IT’S
HOT. AND I DIDN’T TELL HER AND THE
GUY BELOW ME IS A HEROIN DEALER AND A PIMP. ( LAUGHTER )
IT WAS A ROUGH PLACE. I MEAN, USUALLY, IT WAS OKAY,
YOU KNOW, OUR BUILDING WAS SKETCHY. I CAME HOME — THIS IS PROBABLY
NOT A FUN STORY — I CAME HOME, LIKE, LATE AFTERNOON, AND THE
APARTMENT BELOW US, THERE WAS — THE DOOR WAS OPEN, THE APARTMENT
WAS JUST RANSACKED AND CRAZY, AND THERE WAS A POOR, SWEET
WORKING GALLING HALF IN AND HALF OUT, LIKE, THAT, AND THIS HAND
WAS HOLDING A BANANA, WHICH I SPECIFICALLY REMEMBER AND I WAS,
LIKE, OH, MY GOD I START CRYING. I GET A POLICE OFFICER. I WAS, LIKE, OH, MY GOD I HOPE
SHE’S LIKE HURT IS THE BEST THING. I DON’T KNOW IF SHE’S BREATHING. WE GET UP THERE AND HE GOES,
ROBIN! GET UP! AND SHE GOES, OH, HEY HON — HEY
HON. OH, I LIKE YOUR SHOES — TO ME. AND GETS UP AND, LIKE,
EVERYTHING’S FINE, GOES BACK. AND I CALLED MY MOM FOR A TICKET
HOME JUST FOR THE WEEKEND. I WAS, LIKE, I NEED A LITTLE BIT
OF PLAINFIELD, ILLINOIS, FOR THE WEEKEND.>>James: TOO MUCH POTASSIUM,
THAT’S WHAT CAN HAPPEN, A POTASSIUM HIGH, THAT’S WHAT THAT
IS.>>LISTEN UP, KID! ( LAUGHTER )
>>James: WE FIRST MET IN NEW YORK.>>YES, WE DID.>>James: DID I EVER COME TO
YOUR APARTMENT?>>NO, I DON’T THINK SO.>>James: WELL, YOU DON’T HAVE
TO SAY IT LIKE THAT.>>NO, JAMES.>>James: I WASN’T SAYING IN
THAT WAY. I WAS SAYING THERE WAS A LOT OF
HANGING OUT IN VARIOUS APARTMENTS.>>A PRETTY SHARP NO.>>James: WHERE WAS YOUR FIRST
APARTMENT?>>IT WAS IN EAST VILLAGE.>>James: RIGHT. AND I WAS 19, I THINK, AND I
FOUND MY APARTMENT ON CRAIGSLIST, WHEN CRAIGSLIST WAS,
LIKE, A LEGITIMATE THING.>>James: WAS IT? OR WAS IT WHEN YOU THOUGHT IT
WAS A LEGITIMATE THING.>>THE LATTER.>>James: YEAH. AND I FOUND AN APARTMENT THAT
HAD A ROOMMATE AND I DIDN’T HAVE ANY MONEY. IT WAS, LIKE, $400 A MONTH, I
WAS, LIKE, FANTASTIC. BUT MY ROOMMATE WAS, LIKE, A
50-YEAR-OLD MAN, A SUBSTITUTE TEACHER, AND I WAS 19. HE HAD THE LIVING ROOM, I HAD
THE BEDROOM AND WE SHARED A BATHROOM AND EVERYTHING WAS FINE
BUT, LOOKING BACK ON IT, I CAN’T BELIEVE I DID THAT. LIKE, I WOULDN’T DO THAT NOW,
LET ALONE — ( LAUGHTER )
>>James: YOU ARE A VERY SUCCESSFUL ACTRESS.>>ON CRAIGSLIST, SHOOT HER A
POST-OR WHATEVER YOU CALL IT. HOW LONG DID THIS LAST?>>FOR, LIKE, FOUR YEARS. ( AUDIENCE REACTS )
YEAH, YEAH.>>James: I FEEL A SITCOM
COMING ON!>>HAVE YOU TALKED TO HIM? NO, AND I ACTUALLY WANT TO
THANK HIM. I DIDN’T HAVE MONEY SOMETIMES
AND HE WOULD LET THE RENT SLIDE.>>James: WELL, I’LL TELL YOU
THIS — WE TRACKED HIM DOWN. I’M KIDDING. ( LAUGHTER )
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )>>I WAS, LIKE, OH GOD! CAN YOU IMAGINE? OME ON OUT, DON! HE, LIKE, DOESN’T KNOW WHERE
HE IS.

for four years a kind old man opened up his MANHATTAN apartment to this ungrateful bitch and kept her safe for FOUR years and now she's on this show shitting on him, and THAT in a nutshell is the ungrateful shitty attitude of white ppl..

this is why they need to be killed off as a ppl…

James I adore the hell out of you and you've had some trash on your show before but I think this is worse than the narcissistic Kardashian clan. I'll never be able to watch this woman again in anything now that I know but she has a hand in one of the most harmful organizations in the United States. I'm disappointed that you had her on the show. You're better than this.

Sorry but Hell's Kitchen by mid '90s was thoroughly gentrified. Was one of the preferred neighborhood for single 20ish women from wealthy families, considered safe, and not cheap.

My immediate thoughts were so antithetical. The first was "wow, look at how some people really go for it, accept what they can get and life actually rewards them for the courage"
and then "God where were this woman's parents, I'd never let my 19yo daughter do that"

Elizabeth's story reminds me of Chris Pratt's story on Graham Norton about the photographer who did his head shots fir free, but had him take a shower at his house…yeah Elizabeth, there is some video of you somewhere I imagine.

I enjoy Elizabeth. Always found her acting just mesmerizing & interesting. We don’t have to talk about religious beliefs, all good. Not difficult to separate – her vibe, aura always comes across positive to me.

Can’t believe I have something in common with both ladies. My first and only NY apt (at age 19) was in Hell’s Kitchen, with a 50+ y old dude. I had the tiny bedroom and he the “living” room.
