Kristen Wiig insists 'Bridesmaids' is a "unisex" movie.
The actress penned the forthcoming comedy – which follows a group of friends and how a wedding impacts on their relationship – with Annie Mumolo and she insists neither of them intended for the story to appeal only to women.
She said: "We did not write this movie specifically for a particular audience.
"There are some things that maybe men gravitate towards and maybe women go for other things but mostly I think it's unisex."
Kristen also credits producer Judd Apatow – famed for movies including 'Superbad' and 'Step Brothers' – for coming up with the ideas for some of the comedic scenes in the film, including one memorable moment which sees the friends vomiting in a bridal shop.
Kristen told the Scotsman website: "Without Judd, this film would not have happened. He had a lot of great ideas and, yes, the dress shop scene was something he came up with. And he was great about improvising – he just let us roll the camera and shoot. He would challenge us to outdo ourselves and he gave us a lot of trust.
"We did have reservations. But mostly because we couldn't picture it. We did question it at first, but what made it work was when Judd said: 'Make it your own version.'
"To me, what's really funny is not what happens in the bathroom – and you don't see that much – it's when everyone is feeling really sick and is starting to hold it in and starts sweating."
