Kristen Wiig covers the August issue of Marie Claire and opens up about dating Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti.
"I will say that I'm happier than I've ever been and I feel very lucky right now," she said, adding that most of her newfound joy comes from "where I am now and who he is. Those are the two big ones."
The comedian recently said goodbye to Saturday Night Live after seven years and while the departure may have seemed out of the blue, staying for that amount of time was always her plan.
"I just always knew it was going to be seven and that was it. I think maybe if I were 22, I could see myself staying a little bit, but it just felt like the right time," she continues. "It was a very surreal moment. 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.'"
So what does she have in the works? Three pretty big films: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Imogene and The Comedian.
Regardless, she knows it isn't success that makes her happiest, but those around her.
"When you're on your deathbed, you probably aren't counting the movies you've made," she said. "You're looking at the people who are around you and thinking about the people in your life, and you can't lose how important that is because that's ultimately where happiness comes from."
