Fred Armisen and Natasha Lyonne are a surprising and yet perfect couple. Here is everything we know about the cute and hilarious Hollywood pair.
Fred Armisen and Natasha Lyonne's History
Portlandia star Fred Armisen was previously married to singer-songwriter Sally Timms and then The Handmaid's Tale's Elisabeth Moss until 2011. Fred is an admitted sex addict and in 2013 he told Howard Stern that he was a "terrible husband" and committed frequent infidelity. Elisabeth confirmed this with New York Magazine, famously saying her marriage "was extremely traumatic and awful and horrible."
Orange Is the New Black star Natasha Lyonne had a scary and heartbreaking public battle with drug addiction that affected her health greatly until she went to rehab in 2006 and became sober.
The two have a complicated history individually so many were surprised to hear Fred and Natasha were a pair.
Lyonne told Glamour that her friend Maya Rudolph introduced her to Fred during her years of drug use so she does not remember the encounter. When she finally became sober Natasha was happy to have Armisen and Rudolph visit her frequently to check up on her.

Natasha shared photos of her Orange Is the New Black co-star Danielle Brooks with both Fred and his Portlandia partner Carrie Brownstein at the Critics' Choice Television Awards. She captioned the cute photo with: "Very nice party. Sexy sexy."
Then Fred posted a photo of Natasha on his own Instagram in August with the caption, "The beautiful and brilliant Natasha Lyonne." This spurred fans into believing she was filming for Portlandia. The same month, the two were seen together publicly flirting at a Variety red carpet event and the Women in Film Emmy Nominee Celebration.
Then the pair regularly began to appear on each other's social media and Fred even gave her a specific shoutout for her SAG award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.

At the September Emmy's Fred, who likes to bring props to red carpets, hilariously wore a movie prop claw. So Natasha told Variety her dress "needed to pair well with Fred, my boyfriend, who was nominated. And he wanted to go as Freddy Krueger. The flashes of fringe at the bottom of the dress really felt like something that Freddy Krueger could have destroyed with his claw."
