I would like to get jiggy with Wiiggy.

2. Like the time she went on the The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon as “Khaleesi” aka “Karen”.

The Mother of Dragons herself absolutely loved it.

6. When you've got the world eagerly anticipating what you do next, you'd think you'd be paralyzed with fear. Not Wiig.


She told Movieline: "I don’t think about it at all. If you’re creating anything at all, it’s really dangerous to care about what people think."


7. Every role she takes on, she completely owns. We literally cannot wait to see her in Zoolander 2.

9. And she let loose during Sia's "Chandelier" performance at the 57th Annual Grammys.

Together with Maddie Ziegler, Wiig represented one of the the two competing sides of Sia's brain. The performance was AwEsOmE.

11. Wiig seems like the ultimate dance partner and all-round BFF.


13. She poses for photos like a total goofball, there's no pouting or duckface to be seen.

14. On The Ellen Show she shared this adorably dorky throwback photo.


16. Wiig's films are always hilarious but also relatable, intelligent and moving.

In Welcome To Me she plays a woman with borderline personality disorder. She told TIME: “We were all on the same page of keeping the funny parts but also acknowledging the dark stuff and not ever making fun of anything".

18. Which spawned an infinite amount of memes.


21. Despite being the most hilarious person in the world, Wiig doesn't like speaking to crowds. She told TIME:

At parties, I'll start talking and notice everyone is looking at me and feel dumb and say, 'Forget it,' and then start eating things.

22. And in a Marie Claire feature she spoke about being a shy kid:

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.
