After co-writing and starring in the highest earning female comedy of all time “Bridesmaids,” Kristen Wiig has gone on to have a breakout year. Her success this year has now seen her land the GQ “Bro of the Year” award in the magazine's Men of the Year issue.
Jon Hamm dedicated the award to Wiig writing: “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. 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.”
He went on to refer to the memorable opening scene in “Bridemaids” in which he starred alongside Wiig.
He said, “Bounding around in a flesh-colored thong, trying not to sweat all over Kristen while a hundred crew members are literally like, 'Can we get this done, please?'--our embarrassment coupled with everyone else's exhaustion lent that scene a particularly awkward sensibility.
