"I went to India for three months and traveled around,” Top Hollywood actress Kristen Wiig Reveals her special India connect!!!
Oscar nominated actress Kristen Wiig, actress, comedian, and writer who is best known for her work, the widely acclaimed comedy flick “Bridesmaids”, will be seen next in Ben Stiller's highly anticipated direction “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty”.
The movie which Ben Stiller acts-directs and has produced follows the exploits of a serial day-dreamer, played by Ben Stiller, who spends more time in his make-believe-world than in real life.
Starring opposite him is Kristen Wiig and she has exclusively revealed how she has, in real life, explored unchartered territories very similar to Ben in the flick. The famous actress confesses that she did something very similar to the movie when she was younger and actually went off for an adventure that was life changing.
“There is something really freeing about having a backpack and everything that you need in it to survive and going to see new places and traveling. It is exciting to do it by yourself. For me, traveling by myself was difficult because it can be lonely at times, but just like it is in the movie, you meet amazing people. I did it at a time in my life when I was a lot younger. I was in my early-twenties and yes it was very life changing,” says the stunning glam icon.
When asked about where she went, Kristen added, “I went to India for three months and traveled around. I was up North in Dharamsala, a Tibetan village and I did some volunteer work. I just needed to get out of my everyday life for a little bit and explore other things and think about what I wanted to do with my life, all the sort of stuff you think about in your early twenties I guess. I subsequently scared my parents. They were basically nervous for about three months and I feel bad about that.”
With an adventure like this we are sure that Kristen would be very excited for the shooting of the movie, which is so relatable to her.
