Anna Marie Tendler opens up about ‘totally shocking’ divorce from John Mulaney

Anna Marie Tendler looks to the future after splitting from John Mulaney last year.

Mulaney and Tendler stunned fans in May 2021 when they confirmed they were divorcing after six years of marriage. By September, Mulaney announced that he and his new girlfriend Olivia Munn were expecting a baby. Their son, Malcolm Hype, was born on November 24th.

In a new interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Tendler did not name her ex-husband, but nonetheless hinted at the emotional turmoil she has gone through over the past year.

“Everything that happened was completely shocking and, in my opinion, surreal,” the author and multimedia artist told the magazine. “In a way, I feel like it can only go from here because I’ve reached a depth that I could go to.”

Tendler later said the isolation she experienced after the breakup was exacerbated by the turmoil of the COVID-19 pandemic, and she only found solace by focusing on her work.

“I had a lot of bad and average days,” she explained. “I would not say that I had good days before the summer. I am so lucky that most of my work is routine, detail-oriented manual work. I work with a needle and thread, and if I’m not on it, I’m going to prick myself with a needle and ruin something.

“Just let your whole life fall apart,” she added, “and then develop your hand skill!”

The magazine also points to the “betrayal” that many of Mulaney’s fans expressed after he became a father, as the comedian has repeatedly stated that he and Tendler have no plans to have children.

Noting that she has “always put partnership ahead of children,” Tendler is now rethinking motherhood and plans to freeze her eggs.

“There were things that I didn’t even think about before, because it was just a closed door,” she said. “So now that it doesn’t feel like a closed door, I think about it a lot.”

“I’m lucky to be on the cusp of all these new things that I might experience, and who knows how they’ll go? And there is definitely something exciting about it,” she concluded.
