The Emmy Award-nominated actress opens up about motherhood, marriage and why you’ll never find her on Instagram in an exclusive interview

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, November 29, 2022 / — GRAZIA USA, the American version of the famed Italian fashion bible GRAZIA from the Mondadori Group, has unveiled Lizzy Caplan, star of the acclaimed new streaming series, Fleishman Is in Trouble, as the cover star for its Winter issue.

In Volume V of GRAZIA USA, the luxury quarterly magazine that debuted in 2020, Caplan shares rare insight into her personal life, discussing her marriage to actor, Tom Riley, and becoming a mother to her son, Alfie. She also details the two dream projects she filmed this year (FX/Hulu’s Fleishman Is in Trouble, followed by a remake of the Hollywood classic film Fatal Attraction on Paramount+) and what comes next.

As the 40-year-old American actress racks up roles (and critical acclaim) one thing she’ll never sign up for is being on social media, as GRAZIA USA Editorial & Digital Director Colleen Kratofil reports in the exclusive cover story, titled “DOING IT HER WAY.”

“I managed to avoid it and I still am happy that I did,” Caplan tells GRAZIA USA about staying off social media. “I do think that it makes the job more difficult. The more people know you and have opinions about you as a person, the harder it is for you to be believable as you disappear into a role.”

Throughout the interview, Caplan also speaks on why she waited until later in life to have children, why she gravitates towards playing the roles of “complicated” women, and how she made her mark with a standout portrayal of Libby Epstein in Fleishman Is in Trouble, in which she stars alongside Jesse Eisenberg and Claire Danes.

“Lizzy Caplan is someone who has amassed incredible success in her career and become an inspiration to many, all while staying out of the limelight and letting her talent shine.” Kratofil says. “As she continues to rise and fans clamor to learn more about her, it is inspiring to learn how she keeps herself grounded in an industry that can be so demanding, and how she finds joy and power in keeping her private life private.”


“It’s made everything worse in the world and everybody more unhappy generally,” she says. “I think it’s making us all much more inward – glancing and insular. I never liked it; I still kind of don’t like it, and now I just feel like a dinosaur. But there’s a part of me that thinks I’m going to be proven right or everybody just decides that they need to delete their social media. So, we’ll see.”


“There are moments where you’re just watching this little person do a thing and you’re just beaming at him and you don’t even realize you’re beaming until maybe you see a picture of yourself watching him do this thing and you realize, ‘Oh my, I’m smiling so much right now.’ I was smiling without being totally aware that I’m smiling — it’s like this unrivaled pure joy.”


“We got a lot of life in before we had a kid, so we were both very ready to do this. And it’s just so much more mind blowing and better than you could imagine before actually going through with it. That’s been our experience.”


“I like having the common ground. I like that my husband and I can talk about anything that’s happened on set and he will know exactly what I’m talking about. The trade-off is that you’re both in such an unpredictable line of work, and that of course has its ups and downs. But for me it’s not even a question that getting the understanding that comes with it is worth all of the other stuff.”


“I’ve never done two projects back-to-back, so it’s just been kind of this insane whiplash. But as an actor, all I’ve ever kind of wanted is to be able to do different stuff, so I’m forever grateful that this is what this year looks like.”


She notes that she usually gravitates towards playing “complicated” women who are “maybe not so easily compartmentalized” and got both in the roles she played this year. “These two characters, these two shows, they just couldn’t be more different. It’s like absolute polar opposites, which was a wonderful challenge as an actor. It’s kind of a dream challenge for me.”


“I am so on board with this return of Lindsay Lohan. I’m just pumped. She was such an incredible talent when she was working as a kid and a young adult so I’m happy to see that she’s coming back.” Caplan doesn’t know what the story would exactly entail for a Mean Girls reboot, but if Tina Fey wrote some incredible scripts? “Of course I would want to be a part of it; I would be an idiot not to join,” she says, adding, “But to me it feels like Mean Girls had a really good beginning, middle and end. I don’t know what’s left of the story.”

Caplan was photographed by Emman Montalvan and wears Balenciaga on the GRAZIA USA cover. Inside the issue, she models looks by Gucci, Hermès, Fendi, Prada, Miu Miu, Proenza Schouler, Jimmy Choo, Maison Miru, AGMES, Jenny Bird, Falke, Maria La Rosa. Caplan was styled by Kat Typaldos.
