The 45-year-old looked fab in a black dress featuring lace bodice and bell sleeves, with a sexy low-cut V-neckline. Vamp!

How fab is it that she matched her pumps to the lace top???

She was joined by Ghostbusters co-star Kristen Wiig, who was very noticeable in a bright floral print jumpsuit that covered her from neck to foot. We couldn't even see her toes!

Don't look at it for too long, Perezcious readers, you will get dizzy and faint.

Few people can make us laugh like Melissa McCarthy, which is why we were so delighted she stopped by The Tonight Show Tuesday night to help promote Ghostbusters!

She and Jimmy Fallon decided to play a little game of Word Sneak — where each celeb has to work in totally RANDOM words into a fairly normal chat.

Melissa McCarthy Supports Jennifer Aniston's Passionate Op-Ed On Women's Portrayal In The Media 'One Hundred Thousand Billion Percent'

| Filed under: Jennifer AnistonMelissa McCarthyBodyControversyGirl Power

Melissa McCarthy

As you know, Jennifer Aniston addressed the ongoing fascination with her body in a passionate op-ed published for Huffington Post yesterday — expressing her frustration with tabloid publications and journalists constantly speculating whether or not she's pregnant or just "fat."

Totally agreeing with the 47-year-old's attack on body shaming and misogyny in Hollywood, Melissa McCarthy spoke out at Tuesday night's Gildafest'16 in New York City about the need for society to finally care about something other than a woman's appearance.

Ghostbusters Review Roundup — Funny Feminist Action Or Flimsy Fan Service??

The new Ghostbusters surely ain't afraid of no ghosts… but should they be afraid of film critics??

After getting an unnecessary amount of flack from self-appointed protectors of the original film and misogynistic Internet trolls, the highly-anticipated Sony reboot is finally hitting theaters this weekend!

To the delight of its defenders, the Paul Feig comedy is scoring generally positive early reviews — but that's not to say the gender-swapped reboot didn't have any ghastly misfires.

Even the critics who praised the film's heavy laughs and action agreed it suffered the overbearing presence of the original 1984 film — and sacrificed good storytelling opportunity for fan service. (Way too many cameos!)

Some critics also noted that leads Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig didn't have the same magic as they did in past Feig collabs like Bridesmaids and Spy — but the presence of Leslie Jones and scene stealers Kate McKinnon and Chris Hemsworth made up for the lull in chemistry.

All in all, the reviews say audiences can expect a summer blockbuster full of spooky fun with a side of girl power — but maybe not much that's going to stick with you…

Ch-ch-check out the review roundup (below)!

The GB cast members already appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last week to SLAM misogynistic trolls, but they're not stopping there as they recently did an interview with Entertainment Weekly where Wiig dished:

"You can't get better than the original. But it's a different movie, it's a different cast, it's many years later, and we've also done things that are different. It's not just about it starring women."

Jones then chimed in, saying:

Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, & Leslie Jones Destroy Misogynistic Trolls With The OG Ghostbusters — Watch!

Who you gonna call? Why, the original cast, of course!

There's only about a month until Ghostbusters gets rebooted with an all-female cast, which means there's less time than ever for misogynistic trolls to judge the movie before even getting a chance to see it.

Luckily, Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones don't seem too annoyed by their haters… because they know they're really just 45-year-old men living in their parents' basements! LOLz!!!

The Saturday Night Live regulars stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday to chat about the upcoming horror/comedy, and ended up getting a surprise of their own when the OG 'busters joined them onstage!

During the eight-way interview, Bill Murray, Annie Potts, Ernie Hudson, and Dan Aykroyd officially gave their slimy blessing to the ladies while admitting they were a little nervous about the remake themselves at first.

We can't imagine Bill saying he found the new film to be funny if it really were a dud… so we can't wait to see it when it possesses theaters July 15!
