“But the revelation of Hateship Loveship is the casting of Kristen Wiig, who effortlessly makes the shift from comedian to straight dramatic actress in a role full of potential ego traps that she never falls into: There’s the temptation to make Johanna into a kind of self-sacrificing martyr, or, on the other end of the seriousness spectrum, to play her late-in-life emotional and sexual blossoming for easy laughs. In one early scene, daydreaming of the man she still believes is falling for her, Johanna makes out at length with her own reflection, smashing her face passionately into the mirror for a full minute or more. It’s a complicated moment, funny, sexy, and sad, requiring the skills of someone who can play both leading lady and clown. As this movie makes clearer than it’s been before, we have an actor like that in Kristen Wiig.” — Dana Stevens [x]

“I can’t remember the specifics, but I remember she was on SNL, and someone told me that she tweeted something about me, something very sweet, about wanting a lock of my hair—as a joke. So I got an envelope, cut off some of my hair, put it in her dressing room, and probably scared her! Actually, I think she might have said that I creeped her out a little bit.” — Kristen Wiig on giving Katy Perry a lock of her hair (x)
