The 55-year-old actress
also says that being on the show is why she has a "connection" with fellow alums, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. "Saturday Night Live
is like its own university. Once you’ve been there, there is a kinship with everyone who’s been there and everyone who is there," she explains. "Tina and Amy and I are friends. I met them both when I hosted, and we've been in touch since then. I like those guys. I feel a connection to them."
