Kristen Wiig Happier Than Ever With Her Rocker Boyfriend


The 'Bridesmaids' lead actress also discusses her departure from 'Saturday Night Live' and her final performance on the variety show.

Kristen Wiig says she's quite content with her life now. In a cover story for Marie Claire's August Issue, the 38-year-old actress cites her relationship with Fabrizio Moretti, who plays drums in indie rock band The Strokes, as one of her reasons to be happy.

"I will say that I'm happier than I've ever been," Wiig gushes. "And I feel very lucky right now." The "Bridesmaids" star, who left her post as a "Saturday Night Live" regular earlier this year, explains, "Where I am now. Who he is. Those are the two big ones."

Responding to questions as to why she left "SNL", she says, "I know a lot of people probably assume, 'Oh, she's leaving because she is going to be doing movies now and things like that,' which I will be, but I just always knew it was going to be seven [years] and that was it."

The comedienne joined the longrunning variety show in 2005. She survived the budget cut and became a full member a year later. "I think maybe if I were 22, I could see myself staying a little bit, but it just felt like the right time," she reasons.

Wiig made her final appearance as an "SNL" regular in an "emotional" episode airing on May 19. It was hosted by Mick Jagger and featured Amy Poehler, Chris Kattan, Chris Parnell, Will Forte and Steve Martin. "I just wanted to get through it without breaking down in every sketch," she says.

"It was a very surreal moment," she continues. "You have all this stuff going on in your head, like, 'I can't believe seven years has gone by, and I'm going to miss all these people.' And I'm like, 'Oh, by the way, Mick Jagger is to my right, and I just danced a waltz with him.' So there's that."
