How Kristen Wiig’s Emotional Saturday Night Live Farewell Happened

Bill Hader: It’s a testament to Kristen that she came back after Bridesmaids was such a big hit. I’m not going to name names, but some people who were working at the show said, “If that happened to me, I would not come back.” She was at the table read, writing sketches, doing everything, and we were like, “You’re one of the biggest comedy stars in the world right now and it’s so awesome that you’re here.” That’s the funny thing, though, too: The people who came up with Kristen weren’t thinking she’d just become a star, because we had already seen what a big star she was. By her first season she would come out on her mark and the audience would just start cheering. I remember I was doing all these impressions and stuff like that and trying so hard to get just one character on the show. And Kristen would so easily get out there and just, boom, boom, boom — like Penelope and this and that. And these things are destroying, they’re so good.
Kristen Wiig: Honestly it never crossed my mind to leave the show early. For so many reasons — A, I had a contract for seven years and I wanted to fulfill it. To me it wasn’t like, “I’m going to be on this show and then better things are going to come.” I wanted to be on the show. It was really hard for me to leave even when I did, and just because Bridesmaids made a lot of money didn’t affect how I felt being on the show or change my life in that way. I had known pretty much from the beginning that I was going to do seven years and that would be it. Not because I wanted to leave, but seven years is a good chunk of time, and I was excited to try other things and also make way for new people to come in.
Lorne Michaels: Colin Jost wrote the Kristen good-bye sketch as a graduation ceremony. At that point, I don’t think Andy [Samberg] was 100 percent sure he was leaving; Jason [Sudeikis] was agonizing about it. This was the last show of the season, and Mick [Jagger] was hosting. It was too long at dress, and we just didn’t know whether we’d be doing it — whether there would be time, especially since it was going to be at the end of the show. And so because of that I don’t think there was a lot of thought given to how emotional it would be until suddenly there it was and we were doing it. “Ruby Tuesday” was playing, each cast member danced with her — it was just a magical thing. People in the audience from the old cast even came up onstage. Kristen gave everything to this show her entire time here.
Wiig: Usually when someone leaves the show, at the table read people write a good-bye sketch. It gets slipped into the pile so people don’t read it ahead of time, and it’s the last sketch of the day, and usually there are a lot of tears. Colin Jost wrote that sketch and I thought it was just for the table read, and when it got into the show, I was completely shocked. I was happy because he wrote such a beautiful, sweet, simple thing and also I knew I wanted to somehow say good-bye but didn’t know how to do it. I didn’t know if I should go on “Update”; I had never been on “Update” as myself, and I didn’t want to get up there and just start bawling my eyes out. We tried thinking of characters leaving, but I couldn’t think of anything. It was almost one a.m. and it was my last show and there wasn’t a lot of time left, and there was an issue of it even making it into the show. So I didn’t know if I was going to be able to say good-bye. I changed clothes quickly, so that when Mick Jagger’s talking I’m putting on my cap and gown and running out to the stage to sit down. It ended up making the show and it was just one of the best experiences that I’ve ever had. I can’t even really put it into words. When Lorne came onstage, that really got me. I mean, he was there during rehearsal, but it just seemed so final on-air. He was out there in his suit, and it was just — oh my God, I could get emotional thinking about it right now.

film meme» eight female characters [4/8]: Jerry Bernard Martin

"There’s something in the way she looked at you that made me want to kill her."

There were some great actresses in pre-code films. Actresses got to personify the promiscuity of the typical “male stereotype,” and turn it into many complex characters that were also successful and strong-willed. To me, it was so refreshing to find women get to be as comfortable in their sexuality as a man in the world. Even so, the women were so much more than that. It was inspiring to observe these powerful and strong characters, who just happened to be women.

One of the best examples is Jerry from “The Divorcee” (1930). She marries Ted, and everything’s just great. Then, Jerry finds out that Ted has been having an affair. He tells her it “didn’t mean anything” and to forgive him. They continue their marriage and try to work things out. Well, when Ted goes out of town, Jerry cheats on him. Ted gets home, and when he finds out, he wants a divorce immediately. **Double Standard Alert** Norma Shearer is astounding as Jerry. She delivers some serious “you-go-girl” monologues. [x]

According to Edgar Wright, the flavour of the cornettos featured in the unofficial ‘Three Flavours Cornetto’ trilogy represents the motif of that film. The red or strawberry flavour in Shaun of the Dead represents blood and zombies, while the blue/original flavour of Hot Fuzz represents the police force. The green/peppermint of The World’s End represents science fiction and extraterrestrial elements.
