Kristen Wiig Misses SNL: 'I Always Have The SNL Itch'

Kristen Wiig‘s love for Saturday Night Live has not gone away – she’s still got the “itch”!

“I always have the SNL itch,” the 43-year-old actress recently expressed while promoting Despicable Me 3. “My last show, I wanted to go back. It’s one of those places I always considered to be my home and my family. Going through seven years on that show, it becomes your world and I miss it so much.”

Kristen also added that SNL is great escapism when it comes to dealing with the new Trump administration in the White House: “It definitely helps. Sometimes after feeling hopeless or sad or frustrated all you can do is try to find something to make you happy or to make you laugh,” Kristen told the Herald Sun. “Especially with a show like SNL, doing what it’s doing now, the comments it’s making, and with Alec [Baldwin] and Melissa [McCarthy], it does help you see … not the funny side of it, because we are in such a crazy time, but it does help you laugh at it, which I think is important.”

Pictured: Kristen and co-star Steve Carell promoting Despicable Me 3 at BBC Radio 1 before joining the Minions at the Corinthia Hotel London for a photo call on Wednesday (June 21) in London, England.

FYI: Kristen is wearing a Valentino dress, Irene Neuwirth earrings and Malone Souliers shoes at the photo call. At BBC Radio 1, Kristen is wearing a Tory Sport sweater, Derek Lam jeans, Pierre Hardy heels, Jimmy Choo handbag, Elizabeth & James sunnies and Jennifer Meyer earrings.

Ellen Page & Jennifer Garner Reprise 'Juno' Roles For Planned Parenthood Benefit Reading!

Ellen Page and Jennifer Garner reunited live on stage over the weekend!

The 30-year-old actress and Jennifer, 44, reprised their roles as Juno, the pregnant 16-year-old, and Vanessa, the woman who adopts Juno’s baby, in a special all-woman live reading of their movie Juno held at The Theatre at Ace Hotel on Saturday (April 8) in Los Angeles.

Ellen and Jennifer were joined by Alia Shawkat, Kristen Wiig, Tig Notaro, Tracee Ellis Ross and Issa Rae, who filled in the other roles for the reading benefiting Planned Parenthood.

The event was organized by the movie’s Oscar-nominated director Jason Reitman, who has been putting on live read events for several years now. “Like many other people, I felt like I wanted to do something. I wanted to find a way to contribute to the causes that have never felt more important,” Jason told EW. “It occurred to me that I have this show that could be used as a tool to not only raise money for causes that need the help, but could serve as an opportunity for a group like Planned Parenthood to connect with an audience who can be presented with new ideas, or even an action item.”
