Kristen Wiig On Leaving SNL And Loving Rain

She also says a bunch of other things in an interview with Marie Claire, for which she graces the cover of the July issue.

On her final sketch:

“It was a very surreal moment,” she says. “You have all this stuff going on in your head, like, ‘I can’t believe seven years has gone by, and I’m going to miss all these people.’ And I’m like, ‘Oh, by the way, Mick Jagger is to my right, and I just danced a waltz with him.’ So there’s that.”

On Leaving SNL after 7 seasons:

“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 auditioning for SNL:

“I remember being so scared,” she says, “that after I was done with those characters—if they made it on the show—that I wouldn’t have any other ideas.”

On the weather:

“I love the rain. It’s my favorite weather. I feel like it cleans the city a little bit.”

There you have it: she loves the rain.
