珍妮弗·柯立芝 once tried to join the cast of 周六夜现场 — and that dream sort of just became a reality.

星星 Chloe Fineman expertly impersonated the 白莲花 star in a sketch that aired during Saturday’s Christmas episode. 第二天, 柯立芝, 61, applauded Fineman’s portrayal, 打电话给她 “exceptionally brilliant.

“哇!” 她发了推文. “A massive thanks to @NBCSNL!!”

It was then that Coolidge revealed she previously attempted to be a cast member earlier in her career. “还, congrats to the new cast members!! I know how hard it is to get on that show,” 她说.

I tried my ass off to be one but you actually made it!! What a feat!” 她补充说. “Happy holidays to you all!!”

Even though SNL didn’t work out for her, Coolidge still has had a long and successful acting career. 她最近 became a first-time Emmy winner for her efforts on 白莲花, 为此她也 just received a Golden Globe nomination. She’s also had an extensive movie career with roles in 美国派, Promising Young Woman 和更多.

然而, Coolidge’s tweet about her SNL aspirations came as the show said goodbye to long-standing comedian Cecily Strong. After joining the show in 2012, SNL announced her departure Saturday. “Tonight we send off one of the best to ever do it. We’ll miss you, Cecily!” SNL shared in an Instagram post that featured a sign saying, “We’ll miss you, Cecily.

SNL 创造者 洛恩·迈克尔斯 previously said the NBC series is in atransition year.Seven cast members left the series between May and September, leaving many new openings for a new generation of comedians to take over the show.

Strong is just the latest in this transitional wave to leave the series — though she’s the first to leave mid-season.

SNLmass exodus began in May with the departures of 凯特·麦金农, Aidy Bryant, Kyle Mooney皮特·戴维森. They all said bid barewell during the 季节 47 结局.
