In an interview published in Marie Claire‘s August 2012 issue, Kristen Wiig finally revealed why she left “Saturday Night Live” after seven seasons. She debuted on SNL shortly into season 31, on November 12, 2005.

“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.”

It ended up being an emotional departure for her. “I just wanted to get through it without breaking down in every sketch,” she says of her final show. “Because nothing says comedy like breaking down.”

Someone must have switched Kate Mara and Kristen Wiig’s suitcases while they were preparing for the European premiere of “The Martian!”

Kate, who looked rather plain in her Christian Dior dress, would have probably looked much better in the latter’s Valentino mini dress.

Both women graced the red carpet of the premiere held at Odeon Leicester Square in London.

While critics say that Kristen appeared too twee in her whimsical mini frock, we thought she looked amazing!

Her Valentino Resort 2016 dress was fashioned from sheer mesh fabric. It featured intricate bird-and-floral beadings and embroidery, and a very short hemline that flaunted her legs.

The “Bridesmaids” star further elongated her pins with sparkling nude Christian Louboutin pumps, which appeared to be too big on her feet.
