Actress Kristen Wiig has ruled out a follow-up to her smash hit comedy Bridesmaids after turning down a big money deal to write a sequel.

The funnywoman's film about a doomed bachelorette party was a surprise hit at the box office, raking in $288 million worldwide following its release in 2011.

The cast, including Melissa McCarthy, Rose Byrne and Maya Rudolph, have both voiced their desire to return for a second movie.

But Wiig reveals she snubbed a sequel offer - despite being in line for a huge pay day.

"It wasn't a hard decision. 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 told Harper's Bazaar.
