Kristen Wiig worried she was too old for Hollywood

Kristen Wiig Kristen Wiig, 40, who shot to fame with her hit comedy Bridesmaids in 2011 – was concerned she was too old to make it in the industry after the excitement of moving to Hollywood wore off and she realized most other aspiring actresses were far younger than her. She told Glamour magazine: ”When I first moved there, 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 agentsand I just felt like, ‘Oh, there’s a lot of work I have to do.”’ The Secret Life of Walter Mitty actress first decided to pursue a career in acting during a class at an art college in Arizona, and although she struggled to find work after moving to Los Angeles she admits she came into her own after she joined improv group The Groundlings. She said: ”I was like, ‘Oh my God, I love it’, which was weird because I was terrified of being on stage. But the idea of being someone else and not myself didn’t scare me as much.”
