On Wednesday, Melissa and Steve were spotted filming a commercial for the amazing charity, Stand Up To Cancer.
Both Melissa and Steve looked hilarious in their Olympic wardrobe of bedazzled red track suits and golden sneaks. At one point in the shoot, the comedians topped off their sporty looks with
And that includes Hollywood!
The Tammy star opened up to People about her journey into the spotlight. And she revealed that the desire for starring roles never made her question her body. Even if others were! She said:
We’d love Melissa McCarthy no matter what!
And it sounds like she loves herself just the way she is too!
The Rolling Stone cover girl got real in her recent interview, discussing some of the hardships she had to overcome as a struggling comedian.
Now that this Academy Award-nominated actress has hit it big though, is there anything that she's still striving for?
That's why we don't really think it's necessary to make a pact to not lose weight! Making a pact to NOT be persuaded by Hollywood is different — but if your health and your own will wants you to lose weight, you shouldn't fight it!
However, it sounds like these two have made a pact to not give in to the pressures of Hollywood (good for you, gals), and according to a source, this is the promise they've made to each other:
Honestly, the one thing we never understood about the "female hippo" insult launched at Melissa McCarthy's weight by Rex Reed of the New York Observer, is the need for the "female" part of it. It's not as if we don't know that Melissa's a woman, and it's not as if anyone would say that a female hippo is that much different than a male hippo… it just doesn't make sense ALONG WITH SAYING IT IN THE FIRST PLACE!
If you didn't know, Melissa McCarthy is hilarious. She's one of the funniest actresses we have out there, and yet people can't seem to get past the fact that she's not as skinny as other ladies in her field! It has nothing to do with how funny she is, and yet it's brought up constantly!
Well, now Melissa is responding the fact that Rex's article was even printed:
In the clip (above), the Biggest Loser star goes OFF on the critic and argues that he is "prejudice [and] wrong in every possible way."
But after Miz Michaels is done defending the actress, Rex tries to smooth things over by simply saying that he was NOT attacking Melissa. Instead, he was just talking about her character that she played in her latest film, Identity Thief.
Dayum, hopefully homeboy is being real because if he's not, then he really is an evil person that deserves to be yelled at by Jillian.
And everyone knows how scary that is! LOLz
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) for more deets!!
Melissa McCarthy is a HIGHlarious lady who's recently seen a lot of success as an actress.
She has an Emmy and was even nominated for an Oscar.
But that doesn't mean she still isn't self-conscious.
