Kristen Wiig Tells 'Elle' She Gets Fully Naked in 'Welcome to Me' & Craves Dramatic Roles

Kristen Wiig goes casual on the cover of Elle magazine’s August 2014 issue, on newsstands July 22.

Here’s what the 40-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On getting naked in Welcome to Me: “I’d never read a character like that. I got to a scene where it read, ‘She’s fully naked,’ and I remember thinking, ‘If I do this movie, I have to do this scene, because it’s really important to this script.’”

On being categorized as a comedian: “It’s not necessarily a bad thing. You have to have some sort of context for a person to register in your brain, and I was introduced to the world as a cast member of SNL. But I’ve always wanted to do dramatic stuff, to write and direct, do a lot of different things. Comedy is where my heart lies, but there’s also something really satisfying about being able to step away with a small crew, become a character and get to know her for a few months at a time.”
