In case any thought of a new Bridesmaids movie still existed, we can put another nail in the sequel’s coffin. Despite the great success of 2011′s original comedy, Bridesmaids, writer and star Kristen Wiig has said that she will not be writing a sequel.  With costar Melissa McCarthy in the new Buddy-cop comedy The Heat, helmed by Bridesmaids director Paul Feig, the creative forces behind Bridesmaids are certainly in the spotlight again, which means that once again Wiig’s been asked about her decision not to create another installment in the series as she moves on with her career, by Harper’s Bazaar.

Officially Official

Kristen Wiig Leaves Saturday Night Live In an Emotional Goodbye

What’s been rumor for a while now has finally been confirmed — after seven seasons on NBC‘s Saturday Night Live, Kristen Wiig is moving on. Last year, the superstar comedian proved she could draw an audience beyond the late-night institution with her script for and performance in Bridesmaids, the former of which got her an Oscar nomination. So, yes — it will be sad to see Wiig’s brand of demented but lovable characters gone from Saturday nights. But she’s going to be just fine. That doesn’t mean that some of us, including Wiig, didn’t cry about it, though.

Ellen DeGeneres Plays 7 Minutes In Heaven With A Fella? [VIDEO]

Comedian Mike O’Brien has managed to get the likes of Christina Ricci, Elijah Wood, Amy Poehler, Tracy Morgan, and Kristen Wiig (as you can see here), among others, alone in a closet with him. How? He hosts a web show called 7 Minutes in Heaven. His version of the classic middle school party game includes chatting about guests’ work, performing improvisational scenes, and yes, often awkward kisses. Usually to hilarious results and I can only hope that one day I’m famous enough to be a guest (I hope my boyfriend isn’t reading this). Regardless, I always wonder whether the actors know what they’re getting themselves into or not (in the case of rap group ICP, probably not) when they put themselves into the tiny space with O’Brien for 7 Minutes in Heaven. After all, the show hasn’t been around that long. In any case, I wasn’t quite sure what would happen when Ellen DeGeneres appeared, the talk show host is of course married to actress Portia di Rossi. See for yourself.

I Guess I Can't Argue With That

Kristen Wiig Defends Lana Del Rey — As Lana Del Rey [Video]

If you were anywhere near the internet a few weeks ago when Lana Del Rey performed on Saturday Night Live and then people talked about it, or again this past Tuesday when the singer’s debut album Born to Die came out (and people talked about her performance on SNL again), you might have read things like “worst singer ever,” “worst SNL performance ever,” or a variety of incredibly disparaging things about the newcomer. Many came to her defense, most heartwarmingly, Whitney Cummings, but also Daniel Radcliffe, who was the host of that SNL episode, and SNL head writer/Weekend Update anchor Seth Meyers. But now, Kristen Wiig has stepped into the supportive hug by actually playing the singer, poking a little fun at her persona, but pointing out some things that turn all those rude criticisms on their respective heads. Like how she must have “clubbed a baby seal while singing the Taliban national anthem” instead of just nervously singing in front of millions of people for the first time.

Maya Rudolph Describes That “Scorcese” Drinking Game and Her Boring Baby [Video]

If you caught the Screen Actors Guild Awards this past Sunday, you probably saw Maya Rudolph, Kristen Wiig, and Melissa McCarthy discussing the drinking game they invented. Every time someone mentions “Scorcese,” take a drink. McCarthy was kind enough to demonstrate at the awards show, and Rudolph provided some further explanation during a visit to Conan. Also part of the conversation: Why Rudolph turned to bear survival skills when she met Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and why her six-month-old son is so boring. (Hint: Because he’s only six months old, and she’s joking.)
