Malin Akerman Opens Up About Life After Her Divorce

Malin Akerman Opens Up About Life After Her Divorce

Malin Akerman looks super fierce on the cover of Gotham magazine‘s late spring issue.

Here is what the 37-year-old Billions actress had to share with the mag:

On life after divorcing from her son’s father, drummer Roberto Zincone: “Becoming a mother, there’s a lot of things that shift inside of you. [I’ve been] reevaluating my life, and figuring out who I am as a mother and what my position is in this world. Becoming a mother there’s so many emotions that we feel at any given moment, because there’s so much more vulnerability I feel as a parent. It was like, ‘Wow, I have all of this stuff that I can use now, in my career as well. Why not try new things…’”

On her first big splurge after her first substantial acting paycheck: “I was on The Comeback, and I didn’t have a car. I was telling my castmates, ‘I’m going to buy a car today!’ And they were like, ‘Oh cool, great!’ So I go and splurged—it was $1,500. It was an old Chevy truck, falling apart, but I was so proud and so excited. It was my own car! I bring it to set, and one of the actors that I was working with, he was like, ‘Let me see the car.’ And he comes out, and I could just see the expression on his face… I didn’t care, I was super excited. I was like, I got wheels, baby! It was awesome.”

On playing a character with “f—k you money”: “It’s crazy! It’s beautiful and amazing, but to me it feels overwhelming. Yes, I probably live better than some people, and less than others, but [my home is] a very quaint house. [The Axelrods’ Hamptons mansion] feels so far-fetched from who I actually am and the things I appreciate. I definitely don’t need that kind of a lifestyle, and at the same time, it’s so exciting and interesting and intriguing to be there.”
