Kristen Wiig: Many women aren't delicate flowers
Kristen Wiig, who is a "Saturday Night Live" cast-member starred, wrote and co-produced the female-driven comedy "Bridesmaids" and says it shows women as they are, which is not always delicate."
"I think a lot of ladies are not delicate flowers and I think it's 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. And plus, Jon Hamm has his shirt off, so, buy your tickets."
The plot centers around Annie (Kristen Wiig) and her experiences as the Maid of Honor in her friend Lillian's (Maya Rudolph) wedding. In the flick, Hamm plays Wiig's boyfriend and the actress, who also co-wrote the script admit that she tried to make his character as unlikeable as possible.
"We can say douche bag," Wiig told OnTheRedCarpet.com. "He is a huge douche bag and we wanted him to be as douchey as possible and we said he's gotta drive a Porsche (nothing against people with Porsches) and he played it to a tee. He's so funny in the movie."
The movie was written by Kristen Wiig and her friend Annie Mumolo, who are both members of The Groundlings improvisational comedy troupe. Paul Feig who created "Freaks and Geeks" directed the film and Judd Apatow ("Knocked Up," "Superbad") produced.
While it was hard for Wiig to pick the funniest scene in the movie, she admit that she really enjoyed filming the plane scene and watching actor Michael Hitchcock ("Waiting for Guffman," "Best in Show," "A Mighty Wind") who played her boss.
"I have to say that the plane scene was really fun to do," Wiig told OnTheRedCarpet.com "Watching the other people - Melissa, her character with Ben, her husband - the two of them together is really funny. And Mike Hitchcock, he plays my boss, anything he does, I laughed through the whole thing. Watching him is my favorite thing."
Wiig has appeared in films like "MacGruber," "Adventureland," "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story" and "Paul." She next appears in the upcoming comedy, "Friends with Kids" which also stars her "Bridesmaids" co-stars Jon Hamm and Maya Rudolph, along with Megan Fox.
