Kristen Wiig may have shed a few tears when she left Saturday Night Live, but the comedian is smiling up a storm these days. And that has a lot to do with Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti.

The actress is featured on the cover of August’s Marie Claire and remains mostly mum on her fairly new relationship, but does allow that the musician is making her one content woman at the moment.

“I will say that I’m happier than I’ve ever been and I feel very lucky right now,” says Wiig, responding to the question of why with a pair of answers: “Where I am now. Who he is. Those are the two big ones.”

The Oscar-nominated Bridesmaids star is doing quite well professionally, too. She has three projects in the works:
  1. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (opposite Ben Stiller).
  2. Imogene (opposite Darren Criss).
  3. The Comedian (opposite Robert De Niro).

Still, she clearly has perspective on what matters in life, telling the magazine:

“When you’re on your deathbed, you probably aren’t counting the movies you’ve made. 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.”
