5 Of Kristen Wiig's Very Best Moments

Knocked Up (2007)

If you hadn't seen her on SNL, this could very well have been your first exposure to the hilarity of Wiig.

Yeah, she only enjoys a small amount of screen time, but she sure did her best to steal the show with what she had to work with.

Bridesmaids (2011)

This was the film in which Kristen Wiig truly arrived!

Many billed it as the female version of the Hangover but to be fair, it was something else entirely, and a huge amount of its success can be put down to Wiig herself.

Following Bridesmaids was always going to be a tough one and you might say that there were a few hits and misses as Wiig tended to stay away from the big budget Hollywood stuff in the years following the 2011 success.

This was one of the good choice which saw her team up with SNL team mate, Bill Hader. They play siblings in the movie but you can tell that they are old friends in real life too.

Welcome To Me (2014)

This is a dicey one. I mean, you could point the finger at this film and claim it uses something as serious as mental illness solely for the purposed of a few laughs. Or you could see it as a challenging piece of art.

Either way, Wiig captures your attention from the beginning with her strange charm, as she faces the challenge of playing a person with borderline personality disorder who used lottery winnings to buy her own television talk show.



The Diary Of A Teenage Girl (2015)

Wiig doesn't get a great deal of screen time in this 70s drama but like Knocked Up, she does make the most of what she does have, only in a completely different way.

She expertly plays a tragic mother who lives for the past and shows that not everything she does is purely for laughs.
