Kristen Wiig Covers 'Paper' December 2011

Kristen Wiig brings back bell-bottoms on the December 2011/January 2012 cover of Paper magazine.

Here’s what the 38-year-old Saturday Night Live cast member shared with the mag:

On being on the reverse side of the audition process when casting Bridesmaids: “To really sit on the other side of that was really eye opening and weird process. I definitely know how it feels to be the person walking in and doing an audition; in my experience, to like, say something awkward and then leave my bag in the room — it’s a nerve-racking thing.”

On Bridesmaids as a step forward for women in comedy: “It’s unfortunate that this is only now being talked about, because women have been present in comedy for so long. There have been tons of movies with lots of women in them before Bridesmaids. It’s just a confusing thing to me. But you know, if more movies are getting green-lit, and writers are getting a chance because of this movie, I couldn’t be happier. That’s such a great thing, because the fact that they weren’t is kind of awful.”

On her SNL family: “I love the cast. We’re like Melrose Place without the murder.”

On what she does with her downtime
: “Can you shoot up crack? Whatever you do with crack, online shopping is better than shooting up crack.”
