Kristen Wiig & Will Ferrell Remember Late Joan Rivers at Toronto Film Festival

Kristen Wiig dons a colorful dress while attending the premiere of her new film Welcome to Me during the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival held at Princess of Wales Theatre on Friday (September 5) in Toronto, Canada.

The 41-year-old actress was joined by her co-star Linda Cardellini, and producer Will Ferrell to promote the film, which centers on “Alice Klieg, a woman with Borderline Personality Disorder who wins Mega-millions, quits her meds and buys her own talk show.” .

During the premiere, Kristen and Will reflected on Joan Rivers‘ illustrious career.

“[Joan] definitely was someone who was outspoken and paved the way. I think people really appreciated how fearless she was. I mean, I did!” Kristen shared to E!.

Will added, “I remember watching Joan on The Tonight Show as a kid. We forget when the Tonight Show was the only outlet for comedians. This audacious woman who kind of looked like someone you’d work with in an office would just say all these outrageous things. We forget there were very few women in comedy when she started out and she just blazed this trail that’s opened the door for it to be OK for women to be outrageous and strong and have an opinion.”

The day before, Will kept a low profile while arriving on a flight in Toronto.

FYI: Kristen is wearing a Suno dress and Sarah Jessica Parker Collection shoes. Linda is carrying a Rodo clutch.

    Kristen is too old to be wearing dresses that short.
