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 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.”
