Melissa McCarthy is one of the funniest
women people in Hollywood!
To top it all off, the actress is a beautiful representative for the plus sized community! Gurl has got it going on — but she didn't always know it.
Melissa didn't become confident in her appearance from scenes in Bridesmaids or staring in her hit sitcom Mike and Molly.
She says that being a mom to Vivian (4), and Georgette (1½) has helped her forget about the shallow stuff.
"The stupid stuff like what I wear or how I look I can't control, so I just try not to give too much energy to it. At 20, I would have been like: 'Don't they like me? Was it my hair?' At 41, I think the things that define me, I hope, are a lot more than those kinds of petty things."
said Melissa, who says her body a is work in progress after giving birth to her youngest daughter.
This momma has a TON to be confident about now!
The funny girl co-wrote her latest flick with Bridesmaids witer Annie Mumolo, which she will also be staring in; costarring with Jason Bateman in a movie comedy (still in the talking stage); and appearing in Judd Apatow's as-yet-untitled Knocked Up spin-off. Oh yeah, she also has an Emmy!!
