Kristen Wiig doesn’t want to known as just that funny chick from Saturday Night Live, she want you to know she can go darker. Wiig told Elle about being successful in the comedy world,”It’s not necessarily a bad thing. You have to have some sort of context for a person to register in your brain, and I was introduced to the world as a cast member of SNL. But I’ve always wanted to do dramatic stuff, to write and direct, do a lot of different things. Comedy is where my heart lies, but there’s also something really satisfying about being able to step away with a small crew, become a character and get to know her for a few months at a time.”
I have always seen Kristen as an edgy person in comedies…not a comedian! S he’s not bubbly or in your face and she goes nude in her new movie, Welcome to Me, “I’d never read a character like that. I got to a scene where it read, ‘She’s fully naked,’ and I remember thinking, ‘If I do this movie, I have to do this scene, because it’s really important to this script.'”
