Wiig’s “Bridesmaids” co-star says she’s shy, but “this is a woman who wore coconuts on her tits on ‘SNL’”
GQ has named "Bridesmads" star and co-writer Kristen Wiig as its "Bro the Year" in its annual Men of the Year issue — and enlisted her "Bridesmaids" co-star, Jon Hamm, to pay tribute to the "Saturday Night Live" star.
"For a lot of comics, there's a persona they're not comfortable revealing unless they're performing. Kristen is incredibly shy; she has her hoodie pulled up and her sleeves pulled over her hands," Hamm writes. "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."
Hamm, one of the best guest hosts in recent "SNL" seasons, continues, "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.'"
