Kristen Wiig Says No To ‘Bridesmaids’ Sequel, Readers Respond

The rumors have been swirling as to a possible Bridesmaids sequel, some gossip sites claiming that the movie’s lead Kristen Wiig will not be apart of it. Her costar Melissa McCartney came out in rebuttal of such news, and director Paul Feig told Celebuzz that he’s game to do an additional film.

Celebuzz gave a poll to all our readers asking if they’d see a Wiig-less Bridesmaids, and 82% said “No Way!” 

Meanwhile, Kristen is finally speaking out, and she’s not too thrilled with the idea of a sequel herself. 

The funny lady told E! News, “We’re not planning on doing one. We had a special time making the first one, but we’re really excited to try something else.” The website also reminded us that Kristen’s costar Jon Hamm said of the possible second movie, “I don’t think Kristen is going to do it.”

Paul doesn’t quite share the same view of a possible sequel, telling Celebuzz, “If we could come up with something great that is good or better than the first one, that’s the biggest thing to me. I hate when something is great and then the next one is not good and almost taints the memory of the first one. I’m very respectful of what we did and our work. That said, if it all aligned I would do it.”

However, our readers are definitely into another Bridesmaids movie! Some readers responded: 

Cindy – “And I think a lot of people will feel the same way so it would be a waste of their time to make a sequel without Kristen. I loved the movie and I think they were all great in it but she was my favortie actress of all. And I love her on SNL also.”


xotaytayxo96- “Noooo!! I love Kristen! She’s my fav actress on SNL!!”

Ruby- “Kristen Wigg is hilarious too.”
