Kristen Wiig feels "lost" after moving on from Saturday Night Live. The comedienne-actress worked on the studio of SNL for seven years, and she has now admitted that it has been difficult to adjust since leaving.
Her admission comes despite the fact that her career has turned even more successful since leaving SNL; she has been nominated for an Oscar for her role in Bridesmaids, and has also features in other films such as "Friends With Kids" and on the small screen in "Portlandia."
She has also been lined up for a number of exciting future projects, including to feature in the new Anchorman film, and the sequel to "How to Train Your Dragon."
However, her transition has been difficult, and she has now admitted that she feels lost not having to work at 30 Rock for six out of seven days a week.
The actress recently said, "The show was seven years of my life and a six-day work week and you're constantly with your friends all day, all night … You sort of live and breathe the show … Then, when it's over, you kind of feel a little lost … it was definitely an adjustment – even just the hours and [no longer] being in New York."
The news comes as developments in SNL have also been hitting the headlines recently. In other news, Kanye West is reportedly planning to appear on "Saturday Night Live" next month.
The "Runaway" rapper has not appeared on "SNL" since 2010, but reports Thursday indicate that he could feature on the show on May 18.
According to sources close to West, the rapper has been working on a new album in Paris, but will appear on "SNL" as a musical guest next month, Page Six has reported.
Furthermore, the insiders hinted that the rapper is considering moving to Paris permanently.
NBC has not commented on the May lineup for the late night comedy show, as the bookings have not yet been finalized. Also, musical guests are only made official when they are announced on the show.
"SNL" airs on NBC Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. EST.
