My inner writer particularly enjoyed The New York Times’ pieces on Anne Hathaway and Kristen Wiig today. David Carr’s well-documented story as a recovering addict gives depth to the Hathaway interview, given it’s about her role as a recovering addict. And Melena Ryzik made me laugh out loud with this parenthetical line about SNL’s Wiig — “Though her fans recognize the personalities, they may not recognize the actress, who disappears weekly in middle-agedly bad outfits and worse hairpieces. (If you’re waiting for a wig pun, stop.)” I love when writers give a wink to the reader in a piece like this.

Terrific reads.
