“I stand here humbled, gracious, and completely naked under this robe,” Maya shared. “It really is a true honor to be with all of you as you begin this new phase of your life, as you embark on this exciting and challenging journey of being sober during the day.”

She added, “During senior year, my father asked me what I planned to do after I graduated, and I told him ‘I want to be on Saturday Night Live.’ I never wanted to admit that being on SNL was my dream. I never wanted to admit that I was a thespian. And this was back in the day before people were talking about being thespians. It was before thespians could marry.”

A woman that looks very close to the 42-year-old former Saturday Night Live actress showed up at the Mark & Estel show last week and many photographers assumed it was her.

“Photographers were yelling ‘Maya,’ and she didn’t deny anything, but kept saying, ‘No photos,’” an eyewitness told Page Six.

Also pictured inside: Maya stepping out for dinner with Catherine Keener on Thursday (February 19) in Los Angeles.

Kristen, on auditioning for SNL: “Auditioning for SNL is the most nervous I’ve ever been in my life. It was terrifying.”

Amy, on doing scenes with her fellow female cast members: “Every time I did a scene with the other ladies, it felt like a highlight. And if it was a stinker, it was almost more fun to think about how we would laugh about it later.”

Tina, on succeeding at SNL: “It’s understood that everyone comes in and has to write for themselves. That’s the difference between getting handed the part of the stewardess and getting to play what you think is funny. You’re not going to stay up all night to give yourself one wife line.”
