Girls’ Jemima Kirke Gets Very Real About ‘Feeling Self-Destructive’ Because Of A Rough Patch In Her Marriage

Jemima Kirke gets real!

Everyone copes in different ways!

As you may or may not have heard by now, Jemima Kirke and her husband Michael Mosberg have decided to split after being married for seven years. The estranged couple have two children together, a six-year-old daughter Rafaella Israel, and four-year-old son, Memphis.

While she doesn’t touch on their decision to split, the Girls starlet did cite their tumultuous relationship as one of the very reasons she opted to completely chop off her long blonde locks in 2015!

In an interview with Style Like U, the 31-year-old admitted:

“I was having a terrible moment with my husband in our relationship, and I was extremely hurt by him and extremely angry at him, and so I was feeling self-destructive. But for whatever reason I didn’t do anything self-destructive really, I just cut my hair.”

Jemima even took to Twitter at the time to document it (below):

The actress ended up cutting off more, and explained how her estranged husband helped:

“A couple weeks later, I said I wanted to go shorter and he said ├óΓé¼╦£I’ll do it’ and he cut it and it was really nice… It was kind of romantic. It’s nice to have someone you love cut your hair.”

So, while she said she was “feeling self-destructive,” the celeb revealed why she wanted to shed the weight:

“I cut my hair because I felt like my hair was really one of the only things that made me feel pretty. I felt like my hair was my go-to trick. I really believed for a while that without it I would be boring.”

We have a feeling there are plenty of people out there who can relate!

But the UK native really broke our hearts when recalling the “guilt” of getting pregnant and having a baby in her 20s. Watch her entire brave interview (below)!

She’s an inspiration for being so open and so real about her emotions!
