There will be no "Bridesmaids" sequel for Kristen Wiig, who recently told Harper's Bazaar that turning down an offer to do another "Bridesmaids" movie wasn't a tough call.
"It wasn't a hard decision," she told the magazine in an interview for their latest issue (Warning: The interview contains explicit language)."We knew during the first one, this was it. We would have made a lot of money if there was a second one, but that's not my goal in my creative life."

Andy Samberg might not have gotten a tearful farewell, but the comedian and actor has confirmed that he will be leaving the cast of "Saturday Night Live."
"It's an incredibly emotional and strange moment in my life," Samberg told the New York Times on Friday, June 1. "Obviously it's not a huge shock, but I did officially decide not to come back."

"I think a lot of ladies are not delicate flowers and I think its okay to show that once in a while, right?" Wiig asked Rachel Smith of OnTheRedCarpet.com. "I have to say the rest of the cast, not just the ladies but everyone and the women, the bridesmaids and Maya [Rudolph] I mean, we just got so lucky. So that is really reason enough.
