Mad Men’s Jon Hamm praises Bridesmaids star Kristen Wiig


23 November 2011

While Bridesmaids and SNL star Kristen Wiig has been selected by GQ magazine to receive the honour of Bro of the Year her co-star Jon Hamm has spoken out about their infamous sex scene together.

In a piece written for the magazine, Hamm wrote "Bounding around in a flesh-coloured thong, trying not to sweat all over Kristen while a hundred crew members are literally like, 'Can we get this done, please?'- our embarrassment coupled with everyone else's exhaustion lent that scene a particularly awkward sensibility.But it was inspiring to watch Kristen quarterback the team, be the cheerleader and decision maker, and then get in front of the camera and be hilarious."

Mad Men star Hamm also praised Wigg's comedic abilities, saying that she is capable of going to the craziest places adding "For a lot of comics, there's a persona they're not comfortable revealing unless they're performing, 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."

Wiig has Imogene and Revenge for Jolly! in post production and recently signed on to star in Sean penn's next directorial offering The Comedian and is set to reprise her role of Ruffnut in How to Train Your Dragon 2.

As for Hamm, he'll next be seen alongside his offscreen girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt in Friends with Kids.
