Kristen Wiig, 38, made her final appearance as a cast member on “Saturday Night Live” last night.
Wiig starred in a fake graduation skit with Mick Jagger, who stated, “Many of you are moving onto college, but I’d like to take a moment to say goodbye to one particular student who is leaving this summer . . .to become a nun.”
“You’ve meant quite a lot to us over the last seven years — she got held back! — so our music department got together and prepared a song to say goodbye.”
Cast members on hand to say goodbye included Bill Hader, Jason Sudeikis, Andy Samberg, Seth Meyers, Steve Martin, and Kenan Thompson.
“Saturday Night Live” creator Lorne Michaels, 67, appeared as Wiig’s final dance partner, and Kristen could barely contain her emotions.
Wiig had been planning to leave the show at season, with an insider revealing, “It will be a huge blow to the show. Kristen was talking about leaving a while ago. With her movie success, it’s no surprise.”
Kristen said she plans to direct and “live in Paris and paint. I want to do a lot of different things.”
