There's nothing like a good cry.

Mad Men star Elisabeth Moss is opening up to The New York Times about her new Broadway role in the Tony and Pulitzer award-winning play The Heidi Chronicles, in which she plays art historian Heidi Holland. When discussing her successful -- yet vulnerable and self-doubting -- character, the 32-year-old actress shares that it's actually the super-emotional scenes she enjoys the most.

"I'm never happier than when I'm crying onstage," she admits. "It's super weird, and it’s what I love to do. Isn't that strange?"


In the revealing new interview, she also gets candid about her status in Hollywood, admitting that her unconventional looks automatically disqualify her from certain roles.

"I've never been the cheerleader," she says bluntly. "I've never been the girlfriend."

"We don't talk about whether or not men can have it all," she adds about the double standard for women in Hollywood. "Because they can."

As for the highly anticipated last season of Mad Men, Elisabeth teases a satisfying ending for her beloved character Peggy.

"I actually really, really like it and really was very surprised by it," she says.

And despite the hit AMC show ending after eight years, she surprisingly isn't too sad about it.

"They're family," she says about the close-knit cast. "So it doesn't feel as tragic as you might think."
