Kristen Wiig is GQ’s Bro of the Year

Kristen Wiig has been named GQ’s Bro of the Year in the magazine’s annual salute to men. As part of what seems like a requirement for females appearing in the men’s magazine, the “Bridesmaids” star and co-writer posed in lingerie while making (an ironic?) pouty face.

In addition to the half-naked photo shoot, Wiig was honored for co-creating the highest-earning R-rated female comedy of all time that appealed to both men and women with a glowing blurb written by “Mad Men’s” Jon Hamm.

“For a lot of comics, there's a persona they're not comfortable revealing unless they're performing. Kristen is incredibly shy; she has her hoodie pulled up and her sleeves pulled over her hands,” Hamm writes. “But this is a woman who wore coconuts on her [breasts] on ‘SNL’ ; she can go to the craziest, most grotesque places on the planet in character.”
