The Word: Kristin Wiig breaks up with Fabrizio Moretti

Yes, Kristen, we were as shocked that you picked a movie this terrible.
Kristen Wiig is back on the market.

Kristen Wiig, star of “Bridesmaids” and “Girl Most Likely,” has broken up with her boyfriend of a year and a half, Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti.

“It’s completely amicable,” a source told People. “They are friends.”

Wiig, 39, began dating Moretti, 33, after ending her marriage to actor Hayes Hargrove in 2009. Moretti had previously dated Drew Barrymore and Kirsten Dunst.

Wiig is one of those people who, when I hear that she’s having romantic troubles, I get angry on her behalf. She is Kristen Gosh-Darn Wiig. She made ”Bridesmaids.” She dominated “Saturday Night Live.” She is the coolest and she should be more or less allowed to march up to any dude and go, “You’re my boyfriend now,” and he just thanks his lucky stars to be with her for as long as she’ll let him.

Anyway, for all I know that’s what happened here. Just wanted to establish that I’m Team Wiig.

Wiig says she’s much more reserved off camera than people expect.

“I mean, in an interview situation I am aware that I’m being recorded and written about, so there’s a kind of a persona you have to bring out a little bit,” she admits. “I find that people who interview me expect probably more of a comedic personality than in real life.”
