Kristen Wiig says she is aware that it seems like she left “Saturday Night Live” because her film career was taking off at lightning speed. And while she admits that was part of it, she says she always knew her days there had an endpoint.
She tells Marie Claire in their August coverstory:
ldquo;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.”
She continues: Still, “it was very emotional. I just wanted to get through it without breaking down in every sketch. Because nothing says comedy like breaking down.”
But despite the sadness she felt at leaving the show she called home, she says she is the happiest she has ever been.
“I will say that I’m happier than I’ve ever been, and I feel very lucky.”
“Why?: “Where I am now. Who he is. Those are the two big ones.” [in reference to boyfriend, Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti]

Lindsay Lohan looks different than she did six weeks ago.
The photo on top was taken on Tuesday outside 30 Rock in New York City where Lohan is rehearsing for her guest hosting stint on ‘Saturday Night Live.’ The one on the bottom was taken in a Los Angeles courtroom (her home away from home) on January 17.

Lohan also stopped by the Today Show to tape an interview with Matt Lauer, set to air Thursday, where she told the talk show host she is “clean and sober” and described herself as a “homebody.”
A source close to ‘SNL’ told Fox411 one of the skits being considered features Lohan playing GOP candidate New Gingrich’s wife Callista Gingrich.
We will definitely be tuning in for this one. (Because even if Lohan crashes and burns, Jack White is the musical guest!)
