Natasha Bianca Lyonne Braunstein (born April 4, 1979), known professionally as Natasha Lyonne, is an American actress.

Personal life[edit | edit source]

Lyonne lives in New York City.[1]

When she was 18 years old, Lyonne used the paycheck from her work on Everyone Says I Love You to buy a small apartment near Gramercy Park.[2] At this time, she skipped her senior year of high school to attend NYU Tisch as a double major in film and philosophy.

During the early 2000s, Lyonne experienced legal problems and was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol,[3] and for incidents involving her neighbors.[4] In 2005, she was evicted by her landlord, actor Michael Rapaport, following complaints by other tenants about her behavior.[5]

In 2005, Lyonne was admitted to Beth Israel Medical Center in Manhattan under a pseudonym, suffering from hepatitis C, a heart infection, and a collapsed lung; she was also undergoing methadone treatment.[6] In January 2006, an arrest warrant was issued for her after she missed a court hearing relating to her prior problems. Her lawyer said an emergency had arisen, but did not give details. Later that year, Lyonne was admitted to a drug and alcohol treatment center, and appeared in court afterwards. A judge sentenced her to conditional discharge.[7]

Lyonne underwent open heart surgery to correct damage caused by her heart infection. She recovered from the surgery, and discussed her past health problems on The Rosie Show in March 2012.[8]

She has been in a relationship with Saturday Night Live alumnus Fred Armisen since 2014.[9][10]
