BRIDESMAIDS CO-WRITER TAKES THE SPOTLIGHT

Bridesmaids co-writer and Chi Omega Sister Annie Mumolo (Mu/UC Berkeley) takes the screen this month in the comedy Bad Moms, starring alongside Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and other leading ladies of comedy.

Mumolo was nominated for her first Oscar (Best Writing, Original Screenplay) for her work on Bridesmaids in 2012, but the movie’s runaway success wasn’t her first venture into the comedy scene. She has also had roles in Modern Family, About A Boy, This Is 40, and Bewitched, along with voicing many animated characters. Mumolo is a graduate of premier Hollywood comedy troupe The Groundlings, which has served as the starting point for comedians including Will Ferrell, Maya Rudolph, and Annie’s future Bridesmaids co-writer Kristen Wiig.

Annie talks Hollywood, women in comedy, and motherhood in this article and video from The Huffington Post, and you can catch this talented Sister in Bad Moms, in theaters this month!
