Kristen Wiig moved to Los Angeles years ago – way back when she dropped out of Arizona State University to pursue acting full time. While pretty much everyone who has ever dreamed of getting involved in showbiz knows that LA is where to be, Kristen wasn’t always so keen on the idea and found it difficult to find her footing once she got there.
From Glamour (via film-news.co.uk):
“When I first moved, there was ‘the dream’, as there is for a lot of people. Then I got really scared. I moved there and I was like, ‘Oh, I don’t have any experience,’ and I was surrounded by people a lot younger than I am, a lot better looking than I am, who’ve been acting for a while, who’ve been taking classes, who already have agents and I just felt like, ‘Oh, there’s a lot of work I have to do,’” she recounted to the British edition of Glamour magazine.
It didn’t take long for people to notice her talents, which include writing as well as acting.
While Kristen, 40, co-wrote the script for the hugely successful Bridesmaids with the help of Annie Mumolo, she often doubts her abilities when it comes to penning comedic moments.
“I think writing is probably where I have the least confidence. When I write with Annie, it’s fun and we laugh. Of course, it’s hard to figure the story and stuff, but once that’s done and you’re going through it, figuring out the dialogue and adding the jokes and stuff, that’s more fun,” she explained.

Now that the holidays are finally over, the celebs are back on the town, going to premieres, events, and shopping for groceries in their finest and most WTF-worthy outfits. I covered the People’s Choice Awards in a fashion post so I won’t retread that here, especially because almost all of those outfits were just diabolical.
So let’s get to the best and worst celebrity looks of the week! You tell me which outfits “win” for BEST, WORST, and WTF.

Kristen Wiig changed up her look for the latest Anchorman 2 premiere. Normally, I’d save this kind of thing for our weekly Best and Worst Celebrity Looks of the Week (here’s the most recent one), but I just couldn’t hold back on this one. It’s a very drastic new look. I’m not sure what she’s trying to do here. I think Kristen Wiig is having some sort of identity crisis. She was the goofy SNL darling and now I think she’s trying to be the less goofy indie darling. So she’s making more and more daring fashion choices.
And I don’t know what to think of this. So I’m gonna need your help on this one.
How would you describe this look?

Kristen Wiig is hilarious and SNL has been a total shitfest since she left (with the only bright moments being courtesy of Bobby Moynihan’s Drunk Uncle and Kate McKinnon’s everything), but of course it was time for her to head to greener pastures, and this is what we’ve got: Will Ferrell‘s new mini-series, The Spoils of Babylon.
The series is a spoof of melodramatic series like The Thorn Birds and follows a rich family, the Morehouses. Kristen Wiig is the daughter of an oil magnate who is fighting feelings for her adopted brother, played by Tobey Maguire. LOL, what? It looks really weird, but also really hilarious, don’t you think?
The Spoils of Babylon will premiere on IFC on January 9.
