Jenny Slate Explains How a Psychic & Gloria Estefan Helped Her Get a Job at 'SNL'

Jenny Slate stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday (August 8) and told the hilarious untold story about how she got her big break.

The 35-year-old actress talked to Jimmy about two psychics she went to for life advice – one more recently, and another back in 2008 – and how Gloria Estefan helped her land her gig on Saturday Night Live.

“She was like ‘You should do a one-woman show and you’ll be given the big stage,’” Jenny recalled about the 2008 psychic’s advice. “And I was like ‘Ooh!’ I’m imagining like a castle with a huge stage where the town comes and sees me eat my lunch or something. But then I ended up doing a one-woman show that took place at my funeral if I died as an eccentric millionaire. I was smoking a ton of weed at the time. I did the show and one of the people I was fixated on was Gloria Estefan.”

In any case, the one-woman show ended up getting a visit from a Saturday Night Live scout and landed Jenny a spot in the cast from 2009 to 2010. Watch the full interview below…

Jenny Slate Tells Jimmy Fallon Hilarious Story of Getting Called a Snitch by Pantsless Woman!

Jenny Slate made an appearance on Wednesday night’s (July 19) episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and brought along a hilarious story about the time she got called a snitch by a pantsless woman.

The 35-yer-old actress described the incident to host Jimmy as a “not” car accident where she “kissed” a van with her car trying to park for an audition.

“If I had thought I had hit it, I would’ve said something. I heard some honking and suddenly a lady busted out and was already yelling at me. I was like, ‘I’m uncomfortable,’ I’m uncomfortable because I don’t like to be yelled at,” Jenny expressed. “But I was like, ‘why is this worse then when I usually feel bad about being yelled at?’ This lady wasn’t wearing any pants. No slacks at all, she came out of that van with a shirt and that was all. So I was like no pants, we’re not going to connect. She said, ‘you hit my car because you’re a snitch for the police.’”

Jenny also promoted her upcoming film Landline, which hits select theaters on Friday (July 21) – Watch the full interview below!
