The 27-year-old is a huge fan of the "Bridesmaids" actress because she proves it is possible to be sexy as well as funny, reports contactmusic.com.
Talking about her role in the comedy "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone", which also stars Jim Carrey, Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi, Wilde said: "I auditioned for it, which I love. You feel more secure. I competed against some wonderful comedians – real comedians – and was this wild card… I don’t see why sexuality and comedy have to be mutually exclusive. That’s a tragic concept when it comes to women – you can be sexy and funny."
"I think Kristen Wiig is the perfect example. She’s quirky and nerdy and, like, ‘I’m a sexbomb but also the funniest person you’ve ever met.’ And I worship her for that," Wilde said.
