Kristin Wiig had a breakout year in 2011. Her film Bridesmaids, which she wrote and starred in, grossed almost $300 million worldwide.
Hamm wrote, “It was inspiring to watch Kristen quarterback the team, be the cheerleader and decision-maker, and then get in front of the camera and be hilarious… For a lot of comics, there’s a persona they’re not comfortable revealing unless they’re performing,” he said. “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.”
