Kristen Wiig is one of those female comedians who really came into their own in the past few years. Starting off as just another SNL cast member, it wasn't long before the movie 'Bridesmaids' launched her into superstardom and made her an undeniable comedic force.
For this reason, she's my Ladies' Week Funny Girl of the Day. Check out these five Kristen facts - who knows, you might learn something you didn't know about her!
Before her career in comedy, she was an art student at the University of Arizona, studying painting and graphic design!
She loves chocolate (dark chocolate M&Ms, especially) so much that her friends have nicknamed her 'The Brown Cow'.
When she was a little kid, she admits that she and her friends used to smash potted plants on neighbors' front porches.
Her favorite comedian is British actor Ricky Gervais, the star of the original UK version of 'The Office'.
Kristen is also an avid vegetarian who refuses to wear fur. She and Russell Brand were PETA's Sexiest Vegetarians in 2011.
