Kate McKinnon Reveals What Continues to 'Gobsmack' Her About Her Life

Kate McKinnon is on the cover of Glamour‘s August 2018 issue.

Here’s what the SNL star had to share with the mag…

On taking a leading role in The Spy Who Dumped Me: “I didn’t know what it would be like for me–being me–to be onscreen that much. Would people be able to tolerate it?…In all of the roles I had done prior, I was more of a side dish, a wonderful creamed spinach. And the creamed spinach can afford to be as odd as the creamed spinach wants.”

On what was jarring about the role: “I spend so much time in wigs and doing these voices [for SNL] that having to use my own voice made me feel quite naked.”

On being shocked every time she’s on set: “I continue to be gobsmacked anytime I get an opportunity to work. And I don’t see that going away. I wouldn’t ever want to stop looking around a set and going, ‘Holy sh*t. How do I keep this going? How do I do this again? I have to do this again.’ I wonder if it ever goes away for anyone? I haven’t asked. I wonder how Streep feels. Streep’s gotta know.”

Kate McKinnon Reveals Why She Doesn't Talk About Her Personal Life

Kate McKinnon strikes a pose in a shot from her spread in GQ‘s comedy issue, which also features Sarah Silverman and Issa Rae.

Here’s what the 34-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On being most comfortable playing a character: “I feel like it’s easier for me to talk to people through the medium of sketch comedy. Ironically, if I’m in a wig, that’s my unadulterated self.”

On perfecting impressions and impersonations: “You can’t be judging someone as you’re embodying them. You have to find the point of connection – something you find delightful. Even if you’re intending to skewer someone, you also have to find something that you truly like about them. If you’re mean, it ain’t fun to watch. And if it ain’t fun to watch, they turn off the TV.”

On why she doesn’t share about her personal life: “I decided in my mid-20s that I didn’t feel comfortable sharing personal details like I had in the previous few years. And I just have run with that ever since….The reason I was a horrible stand-up comedian is that you must speak your utter truth with details – the realer and more gruesome, the better. And I just decided that I hated the feeling of doing that. I so much more loved the feeling of disappearing into a character that was saying what I wanted to say and came from my heart. But was not me.”
