Maya Rudolph Says She Was ‘So Sad’ Leaving ‘SNL’ But There’s ‘A Lot Of World Out There’ (Exclusive)

Maya Rudolph has been away from Saturday Night Live for 15 years, pursuing other ventures and pursuing other hobbies.

Now, the actress is reflecting on her departure and offering advice to the four long-serving cast members who left earlier this year.

Rudolph chatted with ET’s Lauren Zima on Wednesday at the DGA Theater Complex in Los Angeles for the debut of her new Apple TV+ series Loot, where she reflected on her departure from the long-running sketch comedy series in 2007.

Rudolph reflected, “I felt extremely sorry when I went.” “I believe it’s fine to take that time, but it’s also good to see the rest of the world,” she says.

Season 47 of Saturday Night Live ended in May, saying goodbye to longstanding cast members Aidy Bryant, Pete Davidson, Kate McKinnon, and Kyle Mooney.

“You forget there’s a lot out there when you’re in the SNL world,” Rudolph explained.

“And they should have a good time.”

Rudolph has clearly ventured outside of SNL in the days after her departure, and she currently stars in a new show called Loot, in which she portrays Molly Novak, a billionaire who is in a downward spiral, is trying to rehab her image, and starts on a path of self-discovery.

One of the challenges of producing a show about a millionaire is ensuring that the lifestyle is presented truthfully within cost limits.

“We did a fantastic job, you know, sticking to a budget. Because let’s face it, we don’t have billions of dollars “Rudolph was kind enough to share. “However, that was the most thrilling part of making this show.”

“It felt like the sky was the limit,” she continued, “and that was really the wonderful ‘where do we go next?’ part.”

“However, they did an incredible job of making it appear as if we spent billions.”
