Kristen Wiig on leaving SNL after seven years (10 photos)

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."
