Infographic: What Your Bridesmaids’ Dress Color Says About You

Kim Kardashian is getting hitched this weekend, and her family isn’t telling us too much about how things we’ll be going down. Mom Kris Jenner tells us that Kim is cool as a cucumber. Luckily, Khloe Kardashian let a little more slip. She divulged that (gasp!) Kim’s bridesmaids will be wearing (ZOMG!) green. Now, I love green—all shades, from mint to kelly to hunter. But I do think it’s a slightly strange color to pick for bridesmaid dresses because the first thing that will pop into the guests’ minds when they see them will be “green with envy.” And who wants their bridesmaids to be envious? [People]

This got me thinking—do different bridesmaid dress colors send subtle subliminal messages to guests? Obviously. After the jump, our taxonomy of what different bridesmaid dress colors say about you. Keep reading »

Elizabeth Banks On The Over-The-Top Female Comedy She Wrote Before “Bridesmaids”

“The studio execs were like, ‘People don’t want to see girls [in the bathroom].’ And I was like, ‘I’m writing from experience! You go to a club and you have to wait in a huge line, so people double up. And, yes, you think you’re only going to take a little pee, but sometimes some poops come out.’ We never got the pooping scene as right as they got it in ‘Bridesmaids.’”

—Elizabeth Banks talks to New York about trying to sell a female comedy she wrote called “What About Barb?” in the days before “Bridesmaids.” Interestingly, the movie had a very similar plot—a bride is forced to make a crazy cousin her maid of honor—and a similar scene. Yeah, it never got made. [NY Mag] Keep reading »

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 »
