After years with the L.A.-based improv comedy troupe The Groundlings, Wiig landed a spot on SNL where she quickly became known for her oddball characters with anti-social behavioral issues. Last year, Wiig became a bonafide Hollywood player with her movie, "Bridesmaids."
Self-Deprecating Autobiographical Role: Annie in Bridesmaids
Hollywood Fairy Godmother(s): Lorne Michaels, Judd Apatow
Awkward Trademark: Her Kermit voice
Upcoming: Imogene, a movie about a woman who is forced to move home after a fake suicide attempt goes awry.
Extra Credit: Hilarious cameo as “Gathy” on fellow Comedy Lady Carrie Brownstein’s Portlandia.
The Takeaway : Being really, really funny trumps everything, including being pretty and having a pair of really, really great legs.
