I love lamp. For me, someone who took far too long to get around to watching the original ANCHORMAN, the holiday release of ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES couldn't come at a better time. There are far too few good movies out right now (that aren't jockeying for Oscar nominations) for us plain folk who just want to go see a funny movie. There are also too few funny women who get as much notice as the Hot or Not selection of the week.
I feel as if I have asked the Kristen Wiig hot question in the past, probably around the time that she was first getting into movies on a more regular basis (THE BROTHERS SOLOMON comes to mind, even though that movie was such a painful turd to sit through.) Sure, she's a funny woman when she's given the right material, a whirling dervish who isn't afraid to look weird or act similarly.
Some time in 2011, everything really flipped on its head for Kristen. There's no good vague way about it, BRIDESMAIDS was the right material for a group of funny women to pick through and that extra something special about Wiig made her character a woman that other women could relate to. Not only was she acting goofy, she was touching and a wee bit sad. She lost her business and had shitty taste in men. Like the movie or hate it, it most definitely endeared Kristen Wiig to the female portion of the population.
I love so hard how Kristen is clearly not doing anything surgical to herself. While she's gotten the right people to work on her clothing and her hair and her makeup, as well as being a naturally thin and clearly fit woman, there's nothing artificial about her looks. No Botox, good firm laugh lines around her mouth and forehead and a solid smile that means something. All of this adds up, in my opinion, to be a fully developed woman - who happens to also be hot and funny.
What do you think of Kristen Wiig?
