Kristen Wiig: 'I turned down Bridesmaids 2'

By
Kristen Wiig has revealed that she turned down a major offer to star in Bridesmaids 2.

There has been much speculation about a Bridesmaids sequel since the film made $288 million (£189 million) at the box office, with Melissa McCarthy and Maya Rudolph both expressing interest in returning.

Wiig has now revealed to Harper's Bazaar that she and writing partner Annie Mumolo were in fact offered a sequel, but chose not to pursue the project.

"It wasn't a hard decision," Wiig explained to the publication.

She went on to explain: "We knew during the first one, this was it. We would have made a lot of money if there was a second one, but that's not my goal in my creative life."

Wiig went on to admit that it's odd for her to be playing romantic leads in movies, given that she played such bizarre characters on Saturday Night Live for many years.

"When people first started recognising me, they always gave me a second look because they didn't really know what I looked like," she recalled.

"For a long time it was my job to be an unattractive older woman or a creepy-looking child."

Her next film Girl Most Likely opens on July 19 in the US and on July 26 in the UK. Watch a trailer below:
