Kristen Wiig… in a wig! The SNL alum appeared on the Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday, Feb. 18 — impersonating One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles. The takeaway from the funny woman’s interview with her longtime pal? It’s not easy being Harry.
Wiig, dressed in Styles’ trademark black suit, white shirt, layered necklaces, and pointed-toe boots, completed her transformation with a hairstyle mimicking the pop sensation’s beloved bouffant. Fallon, in his second night as Tonight Show host, played along and asked Wiig, “How did you guys form?”
“Uh… we were at school,” the Bridesmaid star, declining to use a British accent, responded. “And it was one of those, like, hey! I sing. And then everyone was like, let’s go to Harry’s house… and then we sent a tape to RCA.”
Neither Fallon nor Wiig were able to play along for the interview without cracking smiles and giggles. Impressed by faux-Styles’ nesty ‘do, Fallon at one point asked Wiig, “How do you style your hair?”
“I have to use two hairdryers,” she responded without skipping a beat. With a clap and laugh, Fallon incredulously responded, “You aim them at each other… like they’re fighting.”
She then answered some simple questions and autographed a poster for Fallon as “Harry Stiles.” Wiig completed her amazing, awkward interview with a botched performance of One Direction’s hit single, What Makes You Beautiful.
