So, GQ is in the middle of rolling out their “Men Of The Year” feature and in their “Bro” category we have ourselves…Kristen Wiig? The Bridesmaides creator/writer/star is having a banner year but now it appears she’s also kicking ass in the gender redefining business.
But just in case you had any doubts, they also ran the story (written by Jon Hamm) with Wiig putting on her best Maxim cover girl shoot. Cool story Bro!
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. Kristen came late to performing, and the way she rose through the ranks speaks both to her drive and to her wild talent. 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.” [GQ]
