She was in high demand that year, also co-starring with Anne Hathaway in the con-artist comedy “The Hustle,” lending her vocal talents as Jennyanydots in Tom Hooper’s “Cats” adaptation and appearing in Taika Waititi’s war dramedy “Jojo Rabbit.”Wilson landed on Hollywood’s radar with 2011’s hit comedy “Bridesmaids,” in her scene stealing performance as the wacky roommate of Kristen Wiig’s character.
