Kristen Wiig says Fabrizio Moretti makes her happier than she's ever been.

The actress has been dating The Strokes drummer since late last year, although they prefer to keep their romance private. While Kristen wouldn't open up about it much in a new interview, she did give a little insight into her private life.

"I am shyer than most people think," she told the August issue of Marie Claire.

"I will say that I'm happier than I've ever been and I feel very lucky right now Where I am now. Who he is. Those are the two big ones."

Kristen appeared in last year's smash hit movie Bridesmaids and left US TV sketch show Saturday Night Live earlier this year. She insists she didn't move on simply because her film career has taken off.

"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 explained. "But I just always knew it was going to be seven [seasons] 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."

Although the 38-year-old is pleased she has movie work lined up, that isn't how she measures her success. Kristen would rather have a fulfilling personal life than make a lot of money.

"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."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant


Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
