We’ve been crushing on Kristen Wiig, Saturday Night Live superstar and co-writer/star of the hit movie Bridesmaids, mega hard lately. She’s smart, witty and hilarious to boot, having created some of the most memorable characters ever to grace the SNL stage and writing the kind of comedic gold that keeps her on everyone’s radar and youtube screen week after week.
Wiig joined the cast of SNL in 2005, after starting her comedy career with LA-based improv troupe,The Groundlings. She quickly rose through the ranks of both to become, well, the awesome, funny, intelligent and wickedly creative gal we watch every Saturday night (or Monday morning on the internetz). Not afraid to look unattractive, be gross or make a complete fool of herself in front of millions of people, she’s daring, without ego, unabashedly herself and totally owns what she does every time she does it. In short, girlfriend rocks.
