Kristen Wiig talks life after ‘SNL’ and hopes of directing

Posted on April 19, 2013 and filed under Articles & Interviews, Public Appearances

While attending the 2013 CinemaCon to present a first-look at The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Kristen also talked to some media outlets about filming the movie and life after Saturday Night Live and then Bridesmaids. We also learn that Kristen is just a few days from starting the filming for Anchorman: The Legend Continues. This probably means that she’ll only have a smaller role in the film, as they have been filming for some time in Atlanta already. Here are two interviews, click on the links to read the complete articles.

Kristen Wiig, one of Hollywood’s most sought-after comedy writer-actors, revealed what may be her next ambition on Thursday: to direct.

At a press conference for the movie “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,” about a man (played by Ben Stiller) who struggles to chase his dreams, Wiig said Stiller had inspired and taught her about getting behind the camera. “It was very inspiring for me to watch Ben [Stiller] directing and acting in this movie because I do hope to maybe direct something,” Wiig said.

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 through the scenes without ruining it by laughing! I’m so excited.”
