Kristen Wiig, star of "Saturday Night Live" and "Bridesmaids," has been named "Bro of the Year" by GQ magazine, which features her in a racy photo spread in its "Men of the Year 2011" issue.
The 38-year-old wears a cleavage-baring black bra and underwear, black heels, a white and black jacket and a sultry, almost ironic look in one of the photos, as seen on the magazine's website.
The men-oriented publication also named Mila Kunis "The Knockout of the Year" and hip hop mogul Jay-Z "King of the Year."
"Mad Men" star Jon Hamm, who played Wiig's jerk of a boyfriend in "Bridesmaids," explains in a short article what he finds appealing about the actress.
"The first time I noticed her was watching the 'SNL' sketch "Lady Business," he said. "Kristen's line was 'I'm a bitch in the boardroom, a bore in the bedroom, and I'm a bear on the toilet,' which she delivered with over-the-top seriousness. I thought, 'My God, this girl is funny.'"
Hamm and Wiig appeared in a sex scene in "Bridesmaids," a successful, raunchy comedy with a mostly female ensemble cast.
"Bounding around in a flesh-colored thong, trying not to sweat all over Kristen while a hundred crew members are literally like, 'Can we get this done, please?' - our embarrassment coupled with everyone else's exhaustion lent that scene a particularly awkward sensibility," Hamm said in the GQ article.
"But it was inspiring to watch Kristen quarterback the team, be the cheerleader and decisionmaker, and then get in front of the camera and be hilarious," he added. "And surprising."
Wigg wrote and also co-produced "Bridesmaids" and told OnTheRedCarpet.com in May: "I think a lot of ladies are not delicate flowers and I think it's okay to show that once in a while."
Wiig, a native of the Rochester area of central New York, joined the NBC sketch comedy series "SNL" in 2005 and continues to star as one of its main cast members. She and Hamm reunited to star in the romantic comedy "Friends With Kids," which also features former "SNL" and "Bridesmaids" co-star Maya Rudolph as well as Megan Fox.
Wiig also recently filmed the dark comedy "Imogene," which sees her play a New York playwright who stages a fake suicide attempt to win back her ex-boyfriend, and is also set to star with Robert De Niro in the movie "The Comedian," a film about an aging insult comic that was co-written by Comedy Central personality and comic Jeffrey Ross.
