'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 Showed Her Daughter 'Home Alone 3' to See If She Recognized Her

Scarlett Johansson is revisiting some of her old movies!

The 36-year-old Black Widow star spoke with People about a recent snow day she shared with her 6-year-old daughter, Rose Dorothy.

“We definitely dug back into the nostalgic ’90s movies,” Scarlett said, explaining that she and Rose had started watching the Home Alone movies.

Scarlett added that she was particularly excited to show her daughter the third installment in the franchise, which featured her first onscreen appearance when she was 11!

“I just wanted her to make the discovery,” she laughed. “Of course, she didn’t because how can an 11-year-old me remind her of me now? And I said, ‘Who’s that person?!’ She was like, ‘You?’ ”

Scarlett shares Rose Dorothy with her ex-husband Romain Dauriac, who she split from in 2017.

Last October, Scarlett married Saturday Night Live cast member Colin Jost. He recently revealed that he didn’t help much with their wedding plans.

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.
