Los Angeles, March 11: American actor Elisabeth Moss believes that acting is a "very strange" profession, which bears similarities with stripping.
The "Mad Men" star says being paid to "pretend" to be someone else is very unlike most other professions.
"Acting is not stupid, but it's a very strange profession, honestly. My job is to get up, and get dressed in someone else's clothes, and go and pretend that I'm someone else. Who does that? Nobody does that. Strippers and actors do that," contactmusic.com quoted Moss as saying.
The 31-year-old said she never hangs on to her character and finds it easy to leave her work behind at the end of the day.
"I'm the worst. I barely hang on to it while we're filming. I am totally that person that they yell 'Cut' and I'm making jokes and doing stupid stuff. It's fake to me to be any other way," she said.
