Kristen Wiig snubbed lucrative Bridesmaids sequel

July 1st, 2013 3:20am EDT

Kristen Wiig Actress Kristen Wiig has ruled out a follow-up to her smash hit comedy Bridesmaids after turning down a big money deal to write a sequel.

The funnywoman's film about a doomed bachelorette party was a surprise hit at the box office, raking in $288 million (£189 million) worldwide following its release in 2011.

The cast, including Melissa McCarthy and Maya Rudolph, have both voiced their desire to return for a second movie, but Wiig reveals she snubbed a sequel offer - despite being in line for a huge pay day.

She tells Harper's Bazaar, "It wasn't a hard decision. We knew during the first one, this was it. We would have made a lot of money if there was a second one, but that's not my goal in my creative life."
