You go girl!

On Wednesday, Melissa McCarthy appeared on Ellen DeGeneres' show to promote her upcoming comedy, Spy.

However, the TV host wanted to chat about something a little more serious — she asked the funny lady about her experience with body shamers.

The Oscar nominee recalled an awkward face-to-face meeting with a particularly harsh critic during the 2014 Toronto Film Festival — which she previously discussed in her recent Entertainment Weekly cover story.

The critic apparently made incredibly sexist comments about the Emmy winner's appearance in a previous film — so the TV star decided it was time to educate the journalist about body shaming!

Right on!!

She stated:

"I said, 'You know, would you do that to a man? John C. Riley played a really broken down character and looked terrible.'
I said, 'I put a lot of time and effort into having her completely not look like she cared about herself. That was part of how I felt she felt on the inside. Would you ever say that to a man?' And he goes, 'Well, you really looked bad.' And then I said, 'I hope…do you have children? And he said, 'I do.' And I said, 'I hope you don't have a daughter."

Whoa! However, the Bridesmaids actress explained that she wasn't trying to be malicious.

She shared:

"When I said, 'If she comes home and someone says you can't have a job because you're unattractive,' are you gonna say, 'That's right?'

And he took that in his heart and he was like, 'No, I would never want that to happen. I would never in a million years want that to happen.'"

FIERCE!! Way to represent women everywhere, Melissa!

We've known since her Gilmore Girls days that Melissa McCarthy was a star!

Now, all of Hollywood knows it, too!

The Spy actress was honored on Tuesday with a star on the iconic Walk of Fame, and to celebrate she surrounded herself with some of her funniest friends.

Naturally, her husband Ben Falcone was there, grabbing her by her significantly smaller waist.

She was also joined by Bridesmaids director Paul Feig and the hilarious host Ellen DeGeneres. Mom Sarah and sister Margie were also in attendance, but not her famous cousin Jenny McCarthy.

We didn't love Melissa's outfit for the big event, but her huge smile and shiny star distract from the frumpy frock and keep the focus on her new accolade!

Congratulations, Mel! You definitely deserve it!

And it's just as good as the red band!!

They even partied together for a bit! Thank goodness someone thought to get a picture!

What made the party especially cool for the "Lady Ghostbusters" is that original cast members Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Sigourney Weaver were all on hand too!

We wonder if they got any advice… like, don't cross the streams! LOLz!
