Kristen Wiig and Fabrizio Moretti on July 30 (Steve Jennings/WireImage)
If you're familiar with any of Kristen Wiig's "Saturday Night Live" characters or impersonations, you know that she's not exactly shy. But when it comes to sharing her private life with the public, the woman who introduced us to "SNL" staples Dooneese Maharelle and Gilly is more reserved. Last night, however, she let her guard down — just long enough for a photographer to snap a pic of her smooching her beau of a year, Fabrizio Moretti.
The Strokes rocker was the deejay at a party for Lexus in San Francisco on Monday night and he brought along his comedian girlfriend. Usually guarded when it comes to the press, they didn't seem to mind kissing for the cameras. Wiig, wearing a black top with buttons up the front, smiled as her scruffy drummer boy planted a sweet kiss on her cheek.
Wiig, who was married to actor Hayes Hargrove from 2005 until 2009, has been linked to Moretti since they were spotted getting cozy at an album launch party for Black Keys in New York City in December 2011. Earlier this month, she spoke out for the first time about her new beau, who previously dated Drew Barrymore. "I will say that I'm happier than I've ever been and I feel very lucky right now," Wiig told Marie Claire. And why is that exactly? "Where I am now. Who he is. Those are the two big ones." And while the "Bridesmaids" star has a string of movies lined up following her "SNL" departure in May, she says she's more excited about her personal life than her professional one. "When you're on your deathbed, you probably aren't counting the movies you've made," she said. "You're looking at the people who are around you and thinking about the people in your life, and you can't lose how important that is because that's ultimately where happiness comes from."
In the interview Wiig also opened up about her big decision to leave "SNL" after seven years on the show. "I know a lot of people probably assume, "Oh, she's leaving because she is going to be doing movies now and things like that, which I will be," she told Marie Claire. "But I just always knew it was going to be seven and that was it. I think maybe if I were 22, I could see myself staying a little bit, but it just felt like the right time."
Wiig's future projects include "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" opposite Ben Stiller, "The Comedian" with Robert De Niro, and "Imogene" co-starring Darren Criss. And, of course, spending time with the hunky drummer who has made her happier than ever.
