Kristen Wiig Talks Life After SNL: I Felt ‘A Little Lost’
Kristen Wiig arrives at the 20th Century Fox Cinemacon Press Conference at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas on April 18, 2013
LOS ANGELES, Calif. --
It’s been nearly one year since Kristen Wiig bowed out of “Saturday Night Live.”
After delivering weekly laughs on the iconic NBC late night sketch show for seven years, the actress admits she floundered a bit after she said goodbye.
“The show was seven years of my life and a six-day work week and you’re constantly with your friends all day, all night,” she told Access Hollywood at CinemaCon in Las Vegas on Thursday, when asked about life post-“SNL.”
“You sort of live and breathe the show,” she continued. “Then, when it’s over, you kind of feel a little lost… it was definitely an adjustment - even just the hours and [no longer] being in New York.”
Now acclimated to her new routine, the “Bridesmaids” star has a multitude of films in the pipeline, including a role in “Anchorman: The Legend Continues,” which she will begin filming shortly.
“I’m leaving in a few days to go film that. I’m so excited!” she said of the Will Ferrell-led “Anchorman” sequel. “I hope I can get thru the scenes without ruining it by laughing! I’m so excited.”
And Kristen just finished shooting a film with another legendary funnyman – Ben Stiller.
The actress co-starred alongside Ben in “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,” which Ben also directed.
“I was just in awe of how anybody does that,” Kristen said, of simultaneously directing and starring in a feature film. “That just seems very intimidating to me.
“[Ben] had everything so organized and he just did an amazing job,” she added. “He never showed stress or anything.”
“The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” – which also stars “Parks and Recreation’s” Adam Scott – is slated to hit theaters on Christmas Day.
