8. Improvised Scenes

All of the scenes in Bridesmaids are scripted, but Wendi McLendon-Covey said some of the more comedic ladies were allowed to go off script and do some improv. “We filmed all of the scenes as scripted, but then there were some scenes that lent themselves to more improv; so we made sure we got the coverage of the scripted version and then they would just let us go. Definitely at the opening engagement party scene where you see all of us for the first time, there was lots of improv for that,” said McLendon-Covey.

7. Roomates in Real Life

Rebel Wilson and Matt Lucas played Kristen Wiig’s hilarious sibling roommates Brynn and Gil in the film Bridesmaids. What’s pretty interesting about these two is that in 2012 they told Us Weekly their role as roommates inspired them to actually move in together! After filming wrapped up, the two got a place in West Hollywood. “We played roommates so well in Bridesmaids we thought we’d do it for real. Except instead of annoying Kristen Wiig, we’re now annoying all the neighbors nearby,” said Wilson. While living together the two received complaints from their neighbors for making too much noise and singing Annie showtunes too loud.
