Picture: Kristen Wigg Poses in Lingerie for GQ

Just in case you were more keen to see someone beautiful, talented and funny in her underwear instead of Taylor Momsen (sorry about that earlier story), here's a picture of Kristen Wiig from GQ. You're welcome!

To prove that Kristen Wiig really is the thinking gentleman's crumpet, GQ got Jon Hamm to discuss her many attributes in a feature that sits alongside the bra and knickers shoot, a bit like how Nuts might get Mark Wright to talk about Emily Scott in the shower. Here's what he said about his time with his Bridesmaid co-star:

"The opening bit in Bridesmaids with all the crazy sexual acrobatics was done on the very last day of shooting. 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. 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. And surprising. For a lot of comics, there's a persona they're not comfortable revealing unless they're performing. Kristen is incredibly shy; she has her hoodie pulled up and her sleeves pulled over her hands. But this is a woman who wore coconuts on her tits on SNL; she can go to the craziest, most grotesque places on the planet in character. Kristen came late to performing, and the way she rose through the ranks speaks both to her drive and to her wild talent. The first time I noticed her was watching the SNL sketch "Lady Business." 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."

Well said, Hamm, well said.

And because we're not forgetting female readers, we've also including a Guardian fashion shoot in the gallery, where Wiig wears clothes for the camera. See, we told you she was talented.
