Wow. Kudos to the fine folks at ELLE because Miss Kristen has NEVER looked this good.
“The Skeleton Twins” and “Welcome to Me” actress Kristen Wiig covers the August 2014 issue of ELLE magazine photographed by Carter Smith shot at the Grey Gardens estate in East Hampton.
On being categorized as a comedian: “It’s not necessarily a bad thing. You have to have some sort of context for a person to register in your brain, and I was introduced to the world as a cast member of ‘SNL.’ But I’ve always wanted to do dramatic stuff, to write and direct, do a lot of different things. Comedy is where my heart lies, but there’s also something really satisfying about being able to step away with a small crew, become a character and get to know her for a few months at a time.”
On getting naked in “Welcome to Me”: “I’d never read a character like that. I got to a scene where it read, ‘She’s fully naked,’ and I remember thinking, ‘If I do this movie, I have to do this scene, because it’s really important to this script.’”
She always seemed to have such a tentative, occasionally problematic relationship with fashion. We always assumed that, like a lot of comic women, she needed some convincing on the whole style front; as if she never quite considered it worth her time. Looks like ELLE managed to convince her. We don’t see how she can look at these pics and not see her style potential. We really love the relaxed confidence on display in that cover shot, but what shocks us here is how well she’s handling a lot of really tricky dresses or dramatic dresses.
And her hair looks fabulous. That’s a great cut for her.
