One of our favorite funny ladies, Kristen Wiig, graces the cover of Marie Claire magazine’s August 2012 issue wearing a Tom Ford suit. Inside, Kristen discusses leaving Saturday Night Live and dropping out of college to travel in Mexico.
On leaving SNL after seven 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,” she notes. “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.”
On dropping out of college to travel in Mexico: “Sailing, kayaking, going with 20 strangers into the mountains of the Yucatán. Probably one of the more important things that I’ve done. It felt like that first big accomplishment. I was scared to do it, I knew it was going to be really hard, and I did it.”
