Kristen Wiig talks about leaving SNL, her boyfriend and her shy side to Marie Claire.
On leaving SNL, after seven years:
“I know a lot of people probably assume, ‘Oh, she’s leaving because she is going to be doing movies now and things like that,’ which I will be. But I just always knew it was going to be seven and that was it. I think maybe if I were 22, I could see myself staying a little bit, but it just felt like the right time.” She continues: Still, “it was very emotional. I just wanted to get through it without breaking down in every sketch. Because nothing says comedy like breaking down.”
On being in a good place with her Strokes drummer boyfriend Fabrizio Moretti:
"I will say that I'm happier than I've ever been and I feel very lucky right now." Why? "Where I am now. Who he is. Those are the two big ones."
On her shy quality:
"I am shyer than most people think... I hated speaking in public. I would miss school just so I wouldn't have to do it."
