With Saturday Night Live MVP Kristen Wiig’s contract on the show up next month and her feature career flourishing post-Bridesmaids, there has been a lot of speculation that she may leave the NBC sketch comedy show. Asked to address her SNL future by frequent SNL host/guest Alec Baldwin on his podcast, Wiig didn’t give a definitive answer. “I don’t know,” she said when Baldwin suggested that “SNL is winding down for you now.” When Baldwin implied that SNL bosses would do anything to keep her, Wiig replied, “Well, everyone has to leave,” adding “I will say that when I do leave it’s not because I’m sick of it and not because I see something better or anything like that. It’s just that it’s time. When I do leave, it will be the hardest thing… This is my seventh year and that’s my family. It’s my heart. It’s New York to me.” As for her future plans if she leaves SNL, “I don’t know,” Wiig quipped. “I may go back to open up a canoe shop.”
