Kristen Wiig acted her way into the hearts of audiences by showing off her comedic chops, most notably in Bridesmaids and on Saturday Night Live. But with recent endeavors such as The Skeleton Twins and Nasty Baby, the 42-year-old actress has shown that she also has a darker side.
On Monday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Wiig premiered the trailer for her “new” film, Crying in a Sweater, and proved she has dramatic chops. True to the title of the movie, she spends the entirety of the clip crying into an assortment of sweaters. Pull quotes from various reviews praising the emotionally charged flick are shown, declaring that it is “a raw, aching, tour de force” and the actress’s performance is “the Wiigaissannce.”
According to Kimmel, the Michael Bay-directed movie is already receiving Oscar buzz.
