The 43-year-old actress says in the new issue of People that she would “definitely” make a sequel to the hit comedy bridesmaids, “If all the girls were in, I absolutely would.”
Maya Rudolph plays the recently engaged Lillian in the 2011 film. For her wedding party, she brings lifelong best friend Annie (Kristen Wiig), new friend Helen (Byron), cousin Rita (Wendy McLendon-Covey), colleague Becca (Ellie Kemper) and Megan (Melissa McCarthy), sister of the future husband.
During the lead up to the wedding, the attractive Annie clashes with the polished and posh Helen in flamboyant fashion, whom Annie feels is encroaching on her friendship with Lillian.
Fans flocked to see the film, which grossed over $300 million at the box office and earned two Academy Award nominations: Best Supporting Actress for McCarthy and Best Original Screenplay for co-writers Wiig and Annie Mumolo.

Because of his smashing success, Byrne, who stars in the new Apple TV+ comedy series idealist With Seth Rogen, admits it will be tough to follow. “It’s a tough task because the first movie was so great,” she says. “It was so magical and so sweet.”
“Maybe we can do a different movie together,” she says. “Re-imagining something. But I miss them all. I saw Kristen Wiig recently. It was lovely to see her. I hadn’t seen her in so long, and my heart goes out to all of them.” I have a special place.
Byron – who shares longtime companions Rocco, 7, and Rafa, 5 bobby cannavale53—says she is not often approached by fans because she can go “under the radar”, but when she is recognized, she can often guess what they will bring.
“It depends on the demographics, honestly. But if there’s a young girl or woman between the ages of 25 and 45, 50, I know it’s going to be a bridesmaids context,” she says.

McCarthy, who worked with Byrne in the 2015 comedy Spyrecently told people she would also be open to follow-up bridesmaids,
“I’ll do a bridesmaids Sequel this afternoon, right now,” she said. “That group of women was the most magical thing ever. Almost all of us were already good friends. I think it was such a magical time.”
Even if the cast “is in our 90s and[writers]Kristen (Wig) and Annie (Mumolo) are like, ‘Should we back up the team? ‘” I’d be like, ‘Yeah. Yes, we should,” the 52-year-old said.
His favorite memory from the production? “Oh my gosh. Just being around so many funny people where really it was like knocking people to the ground because we couldn’t get air,” McCarthy recalled. Food poisoning has happened because sometimes it happens that we are like… you can’t be around that group of human beings and not be by yourself.”
McCarthy admitted that the cast was a bit “hesitating” to shoot one of the most memorable scenes in the film, when the group of friends go wedding dress shopping and all except Helen become ill with food poisoning. .
The actress added, “It ended up being a lot of fun. Also, just Kristen shoving 72 Jordyn almonds in her mouth. There was a take where she had 40.” “And we were like, ‘Kristen’s going to suffocate.’ It was also very unprofessional acting because anyone who wasn’t on-camera was usually hunched over and just nodding. Neither of us was behaving.
