Moriarty was one of the many actors who supported the WGA and SAG AFTRA Strike last summer. She shared these photos of herself protesting on Instagram. Moriarty captioned the post, "The objective is not financial abundance. The objective is fairness. Fairness that manifests in basic, unambiguously justified rights.

Moriarty owns dogs, and she features them on her Instagram. She shared these photos on Instagram of herself with her pup. Moriarty captioned the post, "Bring your child to work day." Harvard Health states that having a dog can be beneficial. "Ongoing research is showing that the health benefits of owning a dog are undeniable. Dog owners have lower blood pressure and healthier cholesterol levels, and a lower risk of heart disease, than non-owners. There are also many psychological benefits to having a pooch around. Dog owners are less prone to bouts of loneliness, anxiety, and depression."


She's Into Astrology


Moriarty has an interest in astrology. Her sign is Cancer, and she revealed in an interview with The Steve Varley Show that she exhibits a lot of Cancer traits "I would say the traits of a cancer, there are certain things that are applicable that I can't deny, but they feel more personal than work oriented. Do you know what I mean? And I will take things that resonate and leave the rest. So it's not something I abide by as a religion, but I'm interested in it."


She Spoke Up

Moriarty isn't afraid to speak up about what she is comfortable with on set. In an interview with Karen Fukukara, she talked about how she spoke out against a costume for her character. "Starlight's original costume, which we call Starlight 1.0. And the other one, the jargon that we use internally on set is the one that is more revealing. We call Starlight 2.0. And I just like the original one because to me, whenever you're in a costume, the second one that is objectifying and intentionally. So just me as a human being, inherently I'm automatically going to have a bias against it. And the original one is hers and it reflects to me her kind of true self. And so I like the original one more. There are pros and cons to both in terms of comfortability."
