Kristen Wiig knows she would make a lot of money from a Bridesmaids sequel, but the former SNL star just wasn't interested in milking that cow.

As she told Harper's Bazaar, she turned down an offer to write a follow-up to the smash hit, which earned $300 million worldwide. "It wasn't a hard decision," she told the magazine. "We knew during the first one, this was it. We would have made a lot of money if there was a second one, but that's not my goal in my creative life."

She was down, however, with appearing in a different comedy sequel, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, which hits theaters this December. "I am so excited about that," Wiig said of joining the Will Ferrell comedy.

She's also starring in the probably not-very-feel-good comedy Girl Most Likely (out on July 19) as a playwright who fakes a suicide attempt to win back a boyfriend but ends up in the custody of her gambling-addict mother (Annette Bening). She's also playing Ben Stiller's love interest in the remake of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, out this Christmas.
