Wiig: Friends slam my style

Kristen Wiig is so laidback about her style, she often forgets she might get papped while out and about.

The Friends with Kids actress admits she doesn't pay much attention to her appearance when venturing out in public. However, since her profile has risen over the past two years, she often finds herself photographed in magazines and being judged on her style choices.

Kristen's friends often prevent her from going out if they think she is wearing unflattering clothes in order to save her from embarrassment.

"That's always weird. You see pictures of yourself in magazines where you didn't know anyone was there..." she mused to Total Film magazine. "I'm the kind of person that will just put on clothes and leave the house, and I have had friends telling me, 'You can't go out like that!' And I guess I can't."

This isn't the first time Kristen has been open about her laidback approach to fashion.

Shortly after the release of Bridesmaids in 2011, the 40-year-old actress spoke out about her favourite looks and how she wishes she could pull off more glamorous ensembles.

"I’m definitely a casual person. I fantasise about being the woman who walks around the streets of New York in high heels, but that’s not me. I’m usually in flats or boots," she told Lucky magazine at the time. "My style is simple, with a touch of bohemian and rock and roll. I’m pretty much a jeans, T-shirt, maybe a leather jacket, slouchy sweater and boots kind of gal. I do like my big sweaters."
