Kristin Wiig is beautiful, hilarious, and always has a minute to take Instagram with her fans; how could we not be crushing on her?

Born in Canandaigua, New York, Kristin is of English and Scottish descent. At the age of 3, her family relocated to Lancaster, PA, and later to Rochester New York, where she stayed through high school. She briefly majored in art at Univiersty of Arizona, but after taking an acting class, she dropped out and moved to LA to join improv group ‘The Groundlings,’ and pursue a career in acting.

Clearly it worked; Kristen was an SNL cast member from 2005-2012, and was one of the best parts about the show during her seven years there. In fact, 2009-2012 saw four consecutive Emmy nominations forOutstanding Supporting Actress. You’ve also seen her in ‘Knocked Up,’ ‘Whip It,’ ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall,’ ‘MacGruber,’ ‘Flight of the Conchords,’ Adventureland, and of course in the 2011 ’Bridesmaids,’ which she co-wrote and starred in. It also earned her a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Actress and an  Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay. The film grossed $280M worldwide.

We can’t wait to see what’s next for Kristin, now that she’s left SNL. Check out more pics of her below and here’s our favorite clip from her tenure at SNL:
