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.

MORE STEVE: Steve Carell & Emma Stone Play Iconic Tennis Stars in Battle of the Sexes Trailer

Emma Stone & Steve Carell Play Iconic Tennis Stars in 'Battle of the Sexes' Trailer - Watch Now!

The first trailer for Battle of the Sexes has been revealed!

Here’s a synopsis of the movie: The electrifying 1973 tennis match between World number one Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and ex-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) was billed as THE BATTLE OF THE SEXES and became one of the most watched televised sports events of all time. The match caught the zeitgeist and sparked a global conversation on gender equality, spurring on the feminist movement. Trapped in the media glare, King and Riggs were on opposite sides of a binary argument, but off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles. With a supportive husband urging her to fight the Establishment for equal pay, the fiercely private King was also struggling to come to terms with her own sexuality, while Riggs gambled his legacy and reputation in a bid to relive the glories of his past. Together, Billie and Bobby served up a cultural spectacle that resonated far beyond the tennis courts and animated the discussions between men and women in bedrooms and boardrooms around the world.

The movie is set to hit theaters on September 22, 2017.
