Maya Rudolph Says Only Her Oldest Son Watched “Bridesmaids.”
The 49-year-old actress – who has Minnie, eight, Pearl 16, Jack, 10 and Lucille, 12, with her legendary filmmaker husband Paul Anderson – stars as Lillian in Paul’s romantic comedy classic Feig in 2011, and Maya admits she didn’t like her brood seeing him because of the sex scene.
However, it wasn’t so bad in the end, as there is only one steamy scene at the start of the movie.
Pearl then watched “Lady Bird” with her mother, which has much more intimate scenes.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter magazine, Maya said: “She grew up with people coming to tell me how much they liked it, and she was like, ‘Why can’t I see it?
“So I put it on and realized, ‘Oh, they have sex at first.’
“Then we watched ‘Lady Bird,’ and I was like, ‘Ehh, ‘Bridesmaids,’ that’s okay.'”
The “Loot” star’s famous scene in the girl-on-girl movie is when she and her bridesmaids try on high-end wedding dresses and after food poisoning, Lillian defecates in the middle of the street.
Maya found it hilarious when a Starbucks barista wrote “the lady who took a *** down the street” on her mug instead of her name.
As for whether there will ever be a sequel, Feig has previously insisted that’s up to star Kristen Wiig.
The comedy saw Kristen’s alter ego, Annie Walker, ruin her friendship with her best friend Lillian and go through a tumultuous time with her cop lover Rhodes (Chris O’Dowd) and wreak havoc as her pal prepared to get married, before restoring peace.
And the director admitted it would take a really clever script to make a second movie because Kristen’s character situation was resolved by the end of the movie.
Asked about the possibility of making another film, he explained: “Everyone thinks they want a ‘Bridesmaids’ sequel.
“It might be fun, but I always have to say this: ‘Bridesmaids’ works – you remember all the comedies, it was great, but the reason this movie worked is because it was about of the character of Kristen Wiig who was a very confident person before the movie started who has this total crash because her bakery goes bankrupt and everything in her life falls apart.
“So we meet her and she’s a disaster.
“She’s desperately trying to hold on to that one thing, which is her friendship with Maya Rudolph’s character, and that’s got her through the fire.
“That’s why all of this is happening, because she acts and tries desperately to save things, and in the end, she heals herself, as much as you can. That’s what you hang on to in this movie. “
