'Saturday Night Live' Stars Who Broke Character During Skits

There’s a lot of pressure when it comes to putting on an episode of Saturday Night Live: it is live, after all.

As a result, cast members and hosts need to stick to their scripts closely in order to keep the sketches flowing smoothly – and they also need to keep a straight face as they fly through dozens of jokes every night. But what happens when they…can’t?

Time and time again, we’ve watched over the years as the cast of SNL, and myriad celebrity hosts, absolutely lose it after cracking up at one of the jokes they’ve said, the sheer absurdity of the sketch, or something entirely unexpected happening in a scene. In most cases, it only makes the sketch even more hilarious for the audience watching at home.

We’ve rounded up some of the best moments where the SNL stars have absolutely lost it during a sketch.

Check out all the times Saturday Night Live stars broke character inside…

Scarlett Johansson Gives Acting Tips to 'RuPaul's Drag Race' Queens, Colin Jost Joins Her!

Scarlett Johansson is giving the contestants of RuPaul’s Drag Race some advice about acting!

The 36-year-old Black Widow star made an unexpected appearance during an episode on Friday (April 2).

“Hey girls! How’s it going? It’s Scarlett,” she said over the workroom television screen.

“Scarlett Johansson! Oh my gosh, Black Widow, I’m living!” Olivia Lux said in a confessional.

Scarlett told the queens, “I’m such a fan of the show. I’m so sad I have not been in the work room but it’s been a dream of mine to participate for a long long time so this is really exciting for me.”

Rosé explained that they were going to be doing an acting challenge where they were going to be acting in front of a green screen, then shrunk down in post-production and edited in combat with imaginary monsters.

“Acting is all about making a situation that’s unreal feel very real,” Scarlett replied. “So I would say that the most important thing is that you have a lot of conviction, whether you’re fighting Thanos or like a giant spiky heel.”

“That comes from believing in yourself, if you don’t believe in yourself then no one in the audience is going to believe you,” she continued.

Right before Scarlett ended her call, the queens were visited by another special guest – Scarlett‘s husband Colin Jost!

The SNL star joked, “I have one guest question. The movie, will it be called ‘Size Queens’?”

“Hopefully, because you’re looking at a roomful of size queens,” Rosé quipped.

'Tom & Jerry' Scores Second Biggest Box Office Opening Since the Start of Pandemic

Tom & Jerry is No. 1!

The live-action/CGI hybrid just notched the second-best domestic opening of the entire pandemic as of Sunday (February 28), according to THR.

The movie brought in $13.7 million from 2,475 theaters and a global total of $38.8 million through Sunday, the outlet reported.

The opening marks the second-best three-day launch of the pandemic behind fellow Warner Bros. release Wonder Woman 1984 ($16.7 million) amid theater re-openings around the country.

“The strong debut of the family pic — by COVID-19 terms— is a good sign for Hollywood as New York City theaters prepare to open on March 5 (Los Angeles). It’s also a win, at least in the short term, for Warners’ policy of opening its 2021 titles simultaneously in theaters on HBO Max,” THR reported, adding that roughly half of the country’s theaters are still closed.

Chloe Moretz, Michael Pena, Colin Jost, Rob Delaney, and Ken Jeong star in the new film.

Find out which movie is on the way to becoming the highest-grossing of the pandemic.

'Tom & Jerry' Movie Is a Surprise Box Office Hit on Opening Weekend!

The new movie Tom & Jerry is now in theaters and it’s going to be a surprise box office hit for Warner Bros.

In addition to being in theaters, the movie is available to stream at home on HBO Max at no extra charge to subscribers.

50% of all movie theaters in the U.S. are still closed due to the pandemic, including major markets like New York and Los Angeles, so no movies are expected to be doing major business right now. The theaters that are open also have to adhere to capacity restrictions.

Deadline reports that Tom & Jerry earned $4 million on Friday (February 26) and the film is expected to gross $12.5 million for the full opening weekend. That will be the second highest weekend gross during the pandemic, behind only Wonder Woman 1984‘s $16.4 million opening weekend.

These numbers are giving industry insiders some hope that the box office will be able to recover once the pandemic is over.

Chloe Moretz, Michael Pena, Colin Jost, Rob Delaney, and Ken Jeong star in the new film.

Colin Jost & Scarlett Johansson Are Worried About Michael Che's Wedding Present

Colin Jost is worried.

The 38-year-old Saturday Night Live star opened up about awaiting co-star Michael Che‘s wedding present after tying the knot with Scarlett Johansson last year.

During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Colin said his co-star told him he plans to give him a gift “sometime” soon.

“The other day he just kinda came up to me in the hallway and he’s like, ‘Hey, uh, I got you something.’ I was like, ‘What do you mean?’ And he’s like, ‘Wedding present. I’ll bring it by sometime.’ I’m like, ‘Oh God, what?’ So I’m waiting to find out what this thing is. But we’re both pretty concerned for our wellbeing,” Colin joked.

Colin Jost also looked back at his wedding to Scarlett Johansson and opened up about why he didn’t help much with the planning process.

Colin Jost Talks About Wedding to Scarlett Johansson & Why He Didn't Help Much with Planning It

Colin Jost is looking back at his wedding to Scarlett Johansson and opening up about why he didn’t help much with the planning process.

The 38-year-old actor, who stars in the new movie Tom & Jerry, talked to Entertainment Tonight in a new interview.

“I don’t pretend to know much about things or have taste in things,” Colin said. “I’m very happy to rely on someone who has a lot better taste and knowledge of things. That’s sort of what I’ve learned in general in my life. I’ve never been like, ‘Oh, should I wear this shirt?’ …I never know, so I always would rather someone else tell me.”

Scarlett and Colin tied the knot back in October 2020 and they announced their marriage in a cute way!

Colin added, “I never grew up imagining my dream wedding, like, this is what I want. I imagined my dream partner rather than my dream wedding. There’s a lot of details to it that I just didn’t even consider.”

“I was much happier about getting [that] right than any of the other,” Colin said about picking Scarlett to be his life partner.

Tom & Jerry hits theaters and HBO Max on February 26.
