'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…

Kristen Wiig & Annie Mumolo Making a Disney Movie About Cinderella's Step-sisters!

Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo are teaming up for another movie and this one will be made with Disney!

The Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar co-stars will be writing an untitled live-action movie about Cinderella’s evil step-sisters, though they will not be playing the iconic characters.

Deadline reports that it’s still unknown if Kristen and Annie will appear in the movie, but if they do, they won’t play the step-sisters. The lead roles will go to younger actresses.

The movie will be “a fairy tale musical comedy that re-imagines the Cinderella classic from the point of view of her infamous evil stepsisters. Spanning their early childhood through the marriage of their universally beloved stepsister and beyond, we follow Anastasia and Drizella Tremaine as they struggle to uphold their family’s legacy.”

In addition to writing and starring in Barb and Star, Kristen and Annie were nominated for an Oscar for co-writing the Bridesmaids screenplay.

Kristen recently revealed the names of her twins, who were born last year.

Jamie Dornan Belts Shirtless in 'Edgar's Prayer' Music Video - Watch!

Jamie Dornan is bringing the drama!

The 38-year-old actor supplied a thoroughly silly music video for an equally silly song from Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar called “Edgar’s Prayer,” which premiered over the weekend.

In the video, Jamie dramatically climbs a palm tree, performing ballet and singing to the sky shirtless at the beach.

Seagulls in the sand can you hear my prayer? I keep trying but I’m getting nowhere,” he dramatically sings.

He recently opened up about a possibility of a sequel to the funny movie, as well as how many shirts he ripped off on set.

“Before I open this, if we don’t say your name, there is a store you can go to on Hollywood Blvd -,” Kristen as Star says before taking out awards and trophies out of her bag.

“It’s called Hollywood Awards and Sports Items,” Annie as Barb adds. “They have loads of trophies – because everyone’s a winner.”

“We’re all winners!” Barb and Star say together.

Kristen Wiig Revealed Her Twins' Names in 'Barb & Star' End Credits!

Kristen Wiig welcomed twins into the world last year via surrogate and we finally have learned their names, one year later.

The 46-year-old actress revealed the names of her twins in the “Special Thanks” section of the end credits for her new movie Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar.

Kristen co-wrote and starred in the new film with her longtime creative partner Annie Mumolo and they both thanked their families in the end credits.

The first names in the “Special Thanks” section are “Avi, Luna & Shiloh.”

As you might know, Kristen‘s husband is Avi Rothman, which means that Luna and Shiloh are likely the names of their twins. The next two names listed in the section are Annie‘s kids.

In an interview last week, Kristen opened up about life at home with her family during the pandemic.

Kristen Wiig Confirms She's Married to Avi Rothman!

Kristen Wiig confirmed some news we never knew before – she got married to her partner Avi Rothman!

The pair have been linked since 2016 and in 2019, a report emerged that they got engaged.

The two have notoriously kept their relationship to themselves, and were first spotted together in Hawaii back in May of 2016, although they’d reportedly been dating before then.

The 47-year-old actress confirmed that she wed the writer-actor-director during her appearance on The Howard Stern Show.

“Besides the fact that we are where we are — it’s hard to not feel so much of the s— and struggle that’s going on — in my home, I’m very lucky about having these two babies and my husband,” Kristen said while discussing the pandemic. “They make it all better, and it’s changed my life.

Reports emerged in June of 2020 that the pair welcomed twins via a surrogate.
