Kristen Wiig‘s Vogue profile is basically a mushy love letter from every single person she knows. As it should be! “I don’t know if anyone ever showed up better equipped for the show than Kristen did,” SNL head writer Seth Meyers gushes. “She was immediately great at it, and it’s a very hard job to be great at. Her characters were broad but built out of incredibly subtle observations.” Sean Penn, Wiig’s costar in the upcoming film The Comedian, might have them all beat in the compliment department, though. “I don’t go to a dinner party where people don’t refer to her as a genius,” he claims. “She’s a writer, she can invent characters and stories, and she has a touch that translates. It’s her game to play.” Man, if only the Target lady could see Kristen now. You know she would approve.
As with most famous ladies, fame brings with it fashion, and in the article Wiig praises Alexander McQueen, Nina Ricci and Isabel Marant as her favorite couture. “I always say I want to look haunted.” the Bridesmaids star said of her Golden Globes Bill Blass frock. The only flaw we could find in the profile? The writer describing Kristen as “the face to watch in female comedy.” How about the face to watch…winning an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay? The face to watch…killing it on your TV every week? The face…who looks great despite what said face’s owner thinks? “I’m going to need a lot of under-eye work,” Wiig joked about hitting the red carpet. “Concealer.”
