kristen wiig jack black april 2011 gi Kristen Wiig is GQ's Bro of the Year for 2011

“Saturday Night Live” and “Bridesmaids” superstar Kristen Wiig has been named GQ’s Bro of the Year. For the piece, they asked her “Bridesmaids” co-star Jon Hamm to write something about Wiig.

“It was inspiring to watch Kristen quarterback the team, be the cheerleader and decisionmaker, and then get in front of the camera and be hilarious … 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,” writes Hamm.

You can read part of the interview at GQ’s website and the magazine will be on newsstands Tuesday, Nov. 22.
