Kristen Wiig Channels Carmen Miranda, Frida Kahlo

Saturday Night Live star Kristen Wiig pays tribute to famous females in V magazine’s Issue #64, on newsstands TODAY!

In the spread, styled by Sally Lyndley, Kristen poses as Carmen Miranda, Brigitte Bardot and Frida Kahlo, all in offbeat styles. Here’s what the 36-year-old funnywoman had to share:

On needing to be attractive and funny to get a laugh: “I think that’s bulls—. I think that if you’re funny and people responde to you, it shouldn’t matter what you look like.”

Co-star Jason Sudeikis ,on her odd jobs before fame: “[S]he had about thirty lives before she showed up at SNL. She’s had a bunch of crazy jobs and crazy haircuts and has lived in about a dozen cities. And there’s always a time when she’ll say, ‘Well, when I was a florist,’ or ‘When I sold peaches on the street,’ or ‘When I went to massage school…’ She’s a journeyman who can start a sentence from any number of nonsequiturs.”
