Melissa McCarthy’s “Bridesmaids” Character Was Inspired By Guy Fieri

“I read the script and had such a weird, fast reaction to Megan. I knew exactly what I wanted her to look like, to sound like, and I got an intense feeling of ‘I like her so much! This will never work out!’ For the audition, I wore no makeup and a bad pant. Once I look like the character, it really locks me in, even if people sometimes say, ‘We need you not to be repulsive.’ … [My husband] and I are obsessed with ‘Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.’ I wanted to wear a short white spiky wig, and they were like, ‘You can’t actually be Guy Fieri.’ I kept wanting to wear crazy white Oakleys on the back of my head, like he does, but somehow they never got in.”

Emmy nominee Melissa McCarthy tells GQ all about her inspirations for the character Megan in “Bridesmaids.” Too bad they didn’t let her go more in the Guy Fieri direction. She looks kind of cute with short spiky hair, as evidenced by this picture. Even though GQ did feel the need to put her in a bikini, any way they could. [GQ] Keep reading »

What’s Up Next For Kristen Wiig?

It’s exciting to see that, in a post-”Bridesmaids” world, Kristen Wiig is starting to get major clout in Hollywood. For years, she has apparently wanted to do a movie called “Imogen,” and it has finally been picked up. Written by the husband and wife team behind “American Splendor,” Kristen describes “Imogen” as such: “It’s basically about a girl who kind of pretends to kill herself. She does it to get her recently ex-boyfriend’s attention. She ends up having to go live with her mom, whom she hasn’t seen in years. It’s kind of about going back home, so she finds her life again and gets reintroduced to her family, kind of a coming home story.” Kristen is hoping to be shooting by the summer.

So what else is on Kristen’s plate? Keep reading »

“Bridesmaids” Stars Kristen Wiig And Maya Rudolph Can’t Stop Talking About Farting On French TV


There is so much to love about about this French TV interview with “Bridesmaids”‘ stars Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph. For starters, “Bridesmaids” is called a raunchy comedy, which apparently translates to “les comedies pee-pee, ca-ca coo” or something in French. And then somehow the interview devolves into a discussion about possible film plots in which farting is the main premise, because the interviewer, apparently, would watch an entire film about passing wind. So much for the French being highbrow. Seriously, this interview is so strange and hilarious, I am going to stop trying to explain it and just encourage you to watch and laugh. Keep reading »

Should Female Friends Be Excluded From Bachelor Parties?

Straight off schooling Robert Pattinson in the art of telling a joke at the MTV Movie Awards this weekend, Reese Witherspoon has announced her newest project and it is, naturally, a comedy. Reese will produce and star in “Who Invited Her?” the tale of a woman who tags along to a bachelor party weekend. The movie is being hailed as, “A Bridesmaid gets a Hangover,” leading me to believe that it will be comedy that’s not afraid to go there—”there” meaning sex, stripper, and bathroom humor galore. New territory for sweet, “good girl” Reese. [Huffington Post]

We’ll have to wait a while to see this flick, but already the topic is ringing true to me. As a woman who has several guys that are close friends, I’ll totally admit that, every now and then, I feel a little bummed when I’m not invited to a bachelor party. Keep reading »

Chyna Phillips Wrote “Hold On” To Keep Herself From Becoming A Hollywood Statistic

“When I wrote ‘Hold On,’ I was 19 years old and was really at a crossroads in my life … I knew that if I didn’t make some really significant changes in my life, I’d end up being another Hollywood statistic. So those words – ‘hold on for one more day’ – were literally what kept me going because if I had to look at everything at once, I don’t think I would have been able to do it. But if I said, ‘just for today, I’m going to see my therapist. Just for today I’m going to not smoke a cigarette. Just for today I’m not going to hang out with that crowd,’ then I was able to handle it. I never imagined writing down words that were meant to help me, would help so many people along the way and become this iconic song.”

—Chyna Phillips on her 1990 hit “Hold On,” which is having a serious comeback thanks to the pivotal role it plays in “Bridesmaids.” Just in case you’re wondering, I have the tune on my iPod and I still find it inspirational, even if it is a tad bit cheesy. Sometimes you just need to be reminded to take it one day at a time. [ONTD] Keep reading »
