Kristen Wiig and "the year's ballsiest comedy"

Jon Hamm profiles Kristen Wiig for GQ.

Kristen is incredibly shy; she has her hoodie pulled up and her sleeves pulled over her hands. But this is a woman who wore coconuts on her tits on SNL; she can go to the craziest, most grotesque places on the planet in character. Kristen came late to performing, and the way she rose through the ranks speaks both to her drive and to her wild talent. The first time I noticed her was watching the SNL sketch “Lady Business.” Kristen’s line was “I’m a bitch in the boardroom, a bore in the bedroom, and I’m a bear on the toilet,” which she delivered with over-the-top seriousness. I thought, “My God, this girl is funny.”

    Is it just me or is that interview a little awkward? Kristen and Rose both seem nice though, so maybe it’s just me. That interviewer needs to enunciate properly though. And that GQ picture is super-raunchy. Emphasis on ‘super’…:D

  • Wiig and Hamm were both fantastic in this, the opening alone warranted its box-office take.

  • Monica

    I did not like this movie.

  • Camille

    So she’s shy? It’s always interesting to see entertainers who can do the darest things when in character, but are so shy when they have to be themselves.

    I didn’t think this movie was ballsy enough. Expected a female hangover….got another chick flick….okay, a chick flick in diguise! It was good but not great. I liked it fine. Certainly not that groundbreaking.

  • Chris

    Bridesmaids is the funniest movie of 2011.

  • lm

    Jon Hamm and McCarthy are hilarious and the only parts of the movie I liked.
