Funny woman Kristen Wiig graces the cover of this month’s Marie Claire magazine where she talks about her decision to leave Saturday Night Live, what kind of childhood she had feeling “very happy” about her life right now. Here are some highlights:
On her temperament: “I am shyer than most people think. 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 leaving “SNL”: “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,” she notes. “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.” 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 her childhood: “I hated speaking in public. I would miss school just so I wouldn’t have to do it. I wanted to be Justine Bateman. She was so cool. Or Lisa Bonet. I just didn’t think it was an option, coming from a town where people don’t pack their bags and move out to Hollywood.”
