Surprise! Melissa McCarthy has lost a TON of weight!

The famous Bridesmaids actress is turning in a very new direction with her next career project, a film coming out in October called Can You Ever Forgive Me?, and part of the difference comes in what we'll all see on screen: a much thinner Melissa!

The talented actress is playing a down-and-out author who turns to crime to pay the bills in this movie (set to open on the 19th of October), and to make it happen for the part, McCarthy lost a whopping 75 pounds!!!

Of course, she downplays the whole thing.

In the past, she has said about her weight and general health and fitness (below):

"I'll be up, I'll be down, probably for the rest of my life. The thing is, if that is the most interesting thing about me, I need to go have a lavender farm in Minnesota and give this up. If I, off the top of my head, name 20 of the most amazing women in my life, it's all shapes, sizes, ages, colours, jobs. I can only go off my reality. What people pass off as 'normal', I just have to keep in my head that it's bullshit."

Well then!!

Ch-ch-check out the trailer to her new movie set to come out in six months (below):

Looks inneresting!!

And she looks SOOOO different, doesn't she?!

What do y'all think, Perezcious readers?!

Let us know in the comments (below)!!!
