We used to get so FREAKIN' excited every Saturday because it meant watching Kristen Wiig on SNL!
But even after spending seven seasons on Saturday Night Live, Kristen claims she never once watched an episode while she was on the show!
What the WHAT?!?
Believe us when we say, you were missing out, girlfriend! You were HIGHlarious!
This week, Wiig admitted she has always avoided watching her own work because it makes her uncomfortable! Kristen explained:
"I don't really watch myself. I didn't watch SNL when I was on it. I've done films that I've never seen. It's really hard because it's two different things, and when I'm acting, I don't want to think about what I look like."
Her comedy skillz go without question, but Kristen's next role is no laughing matter! She'll be taking on a much more dramatic part in the upcoming film Hateship Loveship about a nanny who falls in love with a recovering addict!
Given her background, Wiig admits she's a bit nervous about how her fans react when they see her do something different. She told reporters:
"I don't know how people will embrace the fact that I'm doing something more dramatic. I kind of try not to think about that. People know me for comedy so, it is a switch."
After making us laugh for so long, we're willing to see if you can make us cry too, Kristen!
