Kate McKinnon A to Z → Ellen

“I’ve wanted to meet [Ellen] so badly. My mother had come up with schemes to try and meet you. I used to paint. I was an oil painter. And she would always say: ‘you know, if you would just paint a portrait of Ellen and send it to her, I’m sure that she would have you as a guest on the show. I don’t know why you won’t just paint a portrait.’ And I never did and I don’t know why. I guess it was because I was meant to appear in a different capacity.”
