Carrie-Anne Moss ‘laughs’ over idea that Hollywood turned its back on her: ‘I had kids’

The Matrix Resurrections star Carrie-Anne Moss has managed to work steadily throughout her acting career aside from brief hiatuses from 2001-2002 and 2018 to spend time with her family.

‘Somebody sent me one thing, a video someone had made,’ the Canadian 54-year-old recalled to GQ on Monday.


‘”What happened to Carrie-Anne Moss? Why did Hollywood turn their back on her?” Or something like that. I was like, funny! I had kids, and I wanted to be with them.’

Carrie-Anne has three children – son Owen, 18; son Kaden, 16; and daughter Frances Beatrice, 12 – from her 22-year marriage to Steven Roy, and they live in a ‘cozy’ renovated farmhouse in rural New Hampshire.

Moss and the Canadian 54-year-old teach a $44 five-day intensive online course called Householder through her holistic health and mindfulness company, Annapurna Living.

The aspiring Kundalini practitioner quipped: ‘I can’t be GOOP all of a sudden. It’s literally a labor of love. It’s not a very smart business venture.’

And while Carrie-Anne has also had memorable roles in Memento, Chocolat, Disturbia, and Red Planet – it wasn’t until she was cast as attorney Jeri Hogarth in Netflix’s Jessica Jones in 2015 that she got her mojo back.

‘I had been in this world with small children all the time, and I felt unable to talk to all the grown-ups,’ Moss explained.

The Independent Spirit Award winner received a lot of help settling in New York City from her castmate Krysten Ritter, who ‘worships’ her ‘bestie mentor fave travel buddy sister.’

Carrie-Anne next reprises her role as Trinity/Tiffany in Lana Wachowski’s reimagined four-quel The Matrix Resurrections, which hits US/UK theaters and HBO Max this Wednesday.

‘We think about The Matrix being these systems of control on humanity, and yet the Matrix of our own minds… that’s what I want to bust through all the time!’ Moss mused.

‘Who am I if not a mother? Who am I if not a wife? Who am I if I’m not an actress? Who am I if not my mother’s daughter? Who am I if not Trinity?

The Wachowskis’ prior trilogy – The Matrix (1999), The Matrix Reloaded (2003), and The Matrix Revolutions (2003) – amassed an eye-popping $1.633B at the global box office despite decreasingly dismal reviews.

‘I remember what was hot when The Matrix was out: Friends, Sex and the City,’ the Tell Me a Story actress said of nineties nostalgia.

‘All of us who were watching those things 20 years ago have aged too, so we can feel some comfort in seeing where their lives are now, and looking at where our lives are now and what’s happening with us.’
