Quotes of Kristen Wiig

#Quote
1When you're on your deathbed, you probably aren't counting the movies you've made.
2Why can't there be a lot of great women who are doing great things?
3You have to leave things that you love.
4A big part of being in a wedding is the financial obligation, and that's something that people don't really talk about, but if you're asked to be in a wedding, you're gonna have to fork over some cash.
5I just always gravitate toward the kind of characters or people that maybe you don't want to talk to for a long time at a party, but you do like to watch what they're doing.
6I know from my own experience and from other people in the business that when you come from a place where nobody knew who you were and then there is this sudden shift to where everybody now knows who you are, there's an adjustment that you have to make.
7I like to write and draw and paint, and my mom's an artist, so I think I get caught up in thinking, 'I'm afraid it's gonna be bad,' and it's hard for me to start sometimes.
8I probably lived more of a rock-star life when I was 15. I got in trouble a fair amount. I cared more about hanging out and skipping school than studying.
9I roller skated when I was younger, but when you're on a track that's slanted and you're with other people all skating in a pack, it's a whole different sport.
10I think people like to see the lives of artists that are legends. They always go through the dark periods and I think just as humans we like to see that and them coming out of it. I love those kinds of movies.
11It sounds so cheesy, but there's something very powerful about looking in the mirror and asking yourself a question. Because I think it's really hard to lie.
12People always call me a comedian. And I don't really see myself like that. I guess I just consider myself an actor who does comedy. But who wants to do other things as well.
13People sometimes get a little extra criticism when they try something that they don't normally do, but I think that's just a natural thing for artists. It's like, 'Okay, I did that, and now I want to try this.'
14The good thing about 'SNL' is that it's the same people every week that you're working with, and we've all become so close and tight because we've worked together so long and so closely together.
15There are so many funny women in the world, and there has been for so many years, so I'll be happy when people can just move on from that, and things can just be 'comedies' and not 'female' or 'male,' and everyone gets an equal opportunity.
16I would never wear fur.
17I would rather have a small part in a really great movie than a big one in one that I'm not too psyched about.
18I'd make a terrible surgeon. The fear of blood? Very high on my list.
19I'm a vegetarian; I eat a lot of tofu and soy.
20I'm not as much a history person as an art person, but I mean, you can read history through art.
21If I can be doing something in the arts till the day I die. I would be very, very happy.
22It's fun for me to play people that are just kind of odd.
23It's not like I have boxes of scripts arriving at my door.
24Maybe studios don't want to see women acting in a way that isn't womanly. Maybe people don't.
25Mean comedy is not really something that I personally gravitate towards or something that I do.
26My friends back home are very supportive.
27People are always so surprised when I want to do dramatic stuff.
28The public doesn't want to hear people complaining about having their picture taken.
29The weddings that I've been in have been pretty mellow.
30There's something about a Christmas sweater that will always make me laugh.
31I feel like women are asked their age more than men.
32I hated speaking in public. I would miss school just so I wouldn't have to do it.
33I just like to walk around New York, just put my iPod on and walk around.
34I just want to try and be in projects that are exciting to me.
35I lived in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, until eighth grade, and then my high-school years were in Rochester, New York.
36I never think if I do an impression of someone, I'm never making fun of them.
37I really, really want to go to Paris. I've never been.
38I think it's an interesting thing to watch when a person is trying to keep it together and then ultimately when they do lose it a little bit.
39I wasn't rich.
40I wish I had less fear about creating my own parts.
41When you go out of your comfort zone and it works there's nothing more satisfying.
42With improv, it's a combination of listening and not trying to be funny.
43I don't know about the romantic comedy route, although never say never.
44I wish I had a lot of tattoos.
45Sometimes I need to blow off steam and go dance really hard.
46Even in this day and age, if you're not married, there are people who are like, 'Awww! Don't worry, it'll happen for you someday.'
47For movies to get greenlit solely based on the success of other movies that have a lot of women in them? It's so ridiculous to me.
48I always say I want to look haunted.
49I am shyer than most people think.
50I definitely ran with a pack of hoodlums, that's for sure.
51I do sort of gravitate towards smaller, indie-type movies.
52I don't always just want to do the same thing.
53I don't know if you can articulate an instinct.
54I don't rehearse a lot. I try to keep it organic. Even in movies, the less I rehearse, the better I am.
55I enjoy being characters rather than myself.
56I can relate to having those people in your life that you feel are moving on to this great, big, normal life and you're like, 'What's wrong with me?'
57If you're creating anything at all, it's really dangerous to care about what people think.
58At parties, I'll start talking and notice everyone is looking at me and feel dumb and say, 'Forget it,' and then start eating things.
59I love the rain. It's my favorite weather.
60It's a mystery to me what makes people laugh.
