Boston Common, Fall 2006

BOSTON COMMON: Tell us about the new show.

BRIDGET MOYNAHAN: I wasn’t really looking to do TV, but I know the writers of Six Degrees,

Stu Zicherman and Raven Metzner. The show was really well written and I loved the concept. Plus,

it’s shot in New York. That was a deal maker for me—I like living in New York.

BC: What’s the premise behind Six Degrees?

BM: It does have a bit of the “six degrees of separation” thing. In New York,

you’re just a couple of people away from the person you’re supposed to be with, or somebody who’s really going to touch and affect your life. There are six different

characters and none of us know each other. We all come from different economic

backgrounds or ethnicities or different careers. You get to watch all the characters sort of

just miss each other or collide with each other, and see how each affects another.

BC: I’ve read a bit about your character, Whitney, and she sounds very successful,

but she has a cheating boyfriend. Is that right?

BM: That is revealed. But she doesn’t know that. What happens is that there’s a whole Internet

dating thing that becomes apparent to her. And he tells her that it’s a joke and it was his friends

who put him up to it—that it was nothing. So you believe the boyfriend. But the audience does find out

what he’s really up to. It’s kind of heartbreaking.

BC: You’ve played a lot of characters who always seem to lose the guy. Is there any hope for Whitney?

BM: I don’t know. We’ll see where the show goes. But I did get Ben Affleck in The Sum of All Fears, so…

BC: Are you someone who believes in fate, the whole “everything happens for a reason” theory?

BM: I think there’s a balance of both in your life. I know that there have been people

who have come into my life to open doors for something else, or to affect me in a certain way.

One of my best friends was introduced to me by a guy who neither of us really speaks to anymore,

and it’s almost like he just came into our lives to introduce us. You have to be open to these

things that appear in your life. I don’t know if that’s fate, or if it’s taking advantage of the opportunity.

I think it’s a little bit of both. The character Whitney is presented with something, and she closes

her eyes to it, which we all do at certain times in our lives.

BC: Is it true that in the first episode of Six Degrees, Whitney asks her boyfriend to marry her and he says no?

BM: Yes!

BC: That is heartbreaking.

BM: He says, “I want to do it.” So…

BC: Would you ever do that—ask your boyfriend to marry you?

BM: That’s a loaded question, isn’t it?

BC: Well, what do you think about a girl who would do that? Because it happens.

BM: It does happen—Pink did it, right? I think it’s pretty bold, and it’s kind of sexy. I like it.

I like the idea.

BC: Is there a lot of buzz on your set right now knowing that you’ve got a great time slot

following Grey’s Anatomy, one of the biggest hits on TV?

BM: I think that a lot of us are aware of it, [but] it’s not making us feel any pressure.

We don’t really come from TV so much that we’re sweating about it, because we’re like,

“OK, that’s cool.” We are excited about the script every week, we’re excited about working

with each other, and we know we’ve got all the elements to make a good show.

But I think that following Grey’s Anatomy couldn’t be better.

BC: Since this is the fall style issue of Boston Common, let’s talk a little about fashion.

You were a model before you got into acting. How did you get your start in modeling?

BM: My girlfriend needed a ride to a modeling agency and I drove her, and I kind of went with it.

I went to the modeling school instead of her, and it unraveled from there.

That was in Springfield, Massachusetts. We’re still friends—I just went to her wedding—but honestly,

I had no concept of what a model was or that it was actually a job.

BC: Were you interested in fashion?

BM: Not at all. It’s hard enough for me to look good on a daily basis.

BC: How would you describe your style?

BM: I’m a jeans and T-shirt girl. I’m trying to wear dresses more often,

but it’s a big effort. My friends are shocked when they see me wearing one. It’s like,

“Yeah, I’m trying.” When I go out to events I like to dress up. But on a daily basis I can’t

really make that effort.

BC: This fall there’s an 80s revival in fashion, particularly skinny jeans.

Will you be wearing them?

BM: I think they look really good on other people. I can’t do it myself unless I stuff it into a boot,

which I will try to work. The leggings right now are coming back—that’s another thing.

[Again], they look really good on other people. I don’t think I can carry that look.

BC: You get to that point where you don’t want to wear something that you wore when

you were in seventh grade.

BM: Yeah. But you see, I didn’t look good in it in seventh grade either!

BC: Is there any designer you gravitate to when you have to get dressed up?

BM: I know that if I put a Dolce & Gabbana dress on it’s going to look good.

I’ve been wearing a lot of Giorgio Armani and Lanvin. They’re all three different styles.

There’s really a mood—like the type of event you’re going to.

BC: What’s on your shopping list for fall?

BM: I’ve been looking at the big sweaters. I can’t think about putting on a sweater dress…

you know what I mean? I’ve done that. I remember them. I got my new boots—Chlo
