'Bridesmaids' Stars Kristen Wiig & Maya Rudolph Talk 'Hangover' Comparisons
Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph’s new comedy, “Bridesmaids,” is being dubbed “The Hangover” for women, but the actresses warn there won’t be any tigers, boxers or giggling babies in their movie.
“It’s an enormous compliment,” Maya told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover when asked about the comparison to the Bradley Cooper/Ed Helms/Zach Galifianakis film, “The Hangover,” on Monday’s Access Hollywood Live.
“I think they might be surprised that it’s a little different of a movie,” she continued.
One difference is the appearance of a half-naked Jon Hamm, who Kristen got to film a high-flying sex scene with.
“It was acrobatic,” the “Saturday Night Live” star said of her intimate scene with the “Mad Men” star.
“She’s very flexible,” Maya added.
“I want the world to see how bendy I am!” Kristen joked about her racy scene where she appeared to be wearing very little. “Oh, I was naked, I wear really large pasties.”
Beyond “Bridesmaids,” the pregnant Maya – who just made an appearance on this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” with host and fellow pregnant pal Tina Fey – gave Billy and Kit an update on how things are going waiting for baby No. 3.
“I feel good. I feel good. I feel like I haven’t had any time to worry about it,” she explained. “I’ve been lucky enough to be thinking about this funny movie.”
Kristen said that seeing her former “SNL” co-stars pregnant was a beautiful thing.
“Well, especially this one,” she said of Maya. “It’s beautiful!”
“Bridesmaids” opens in theaters on Friday.
