Melissa McCarthy Talks Haters, Weight Loss, & Having A ‘Boob Fight’ With Kristen Bell!

Melissa McCarthy

Melissa McCarthy is showing us who’s really The Boss!

While promoting her new film alongside Kristen Bell, the 45-year-old opened up about her favorite scene in the new comedy, her impressive weight loss, and how haters can’t get her down.

The Gilmore Girls alum told Refinery29 that things got a little frisky between her character (Michelle) and Bell’s character (Claire). And by frisky we mean there’s some boob-fondling going down.

She explained:

“I don’t know if anyone’s had a boob fight [on screen before]. I can’t think of one, but if there’s been a boob fight, it’s been like, slap-and-tickle pillow fights at sororities. To me, that’s the kind of thing that at, like, 14 you learn is inappropriate. But Michelle never had friends. Twenty years later, she’s having weird teenage stuff happen. It was like, ‘I guess you help your friends with their boobs.'”

LOL! We can’t wait to see that…

Switching gears, when asked about her weight loss, Miz McCarthy seemed less than impressed with the media’s concern with women’s figures:

“I have, but I’ll be back again. 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. There has to be something more. There are so many more intriguing things about women than their butt or their this or their that. It can’t be the first question every time, or a question at all.”

The Heat actress continued by questioning what it would be like if men were asked the same question:

“It’s like, ‘Can you imagine them asking some of these guys I work with, ‘How do you keep your butt looking so good?’ It would be like, ‘What the f*ck are you talking about? Why are you asking about the shape of my butt?'”

Preach, sista!

As for the racial controversy surrounding her other new film Ghostbusters, McCarthy calls the backlash “so off-base” and says people should “just stop trying to stir up the craziness”:

“It can never be positive. It always has to be negative. It’s like whoever can throw sh*t the farthest gets their two minutes. You know you could flip that and shine a light on something and write a great story and still get your two minutes. I wish it was as fashionable to raise people up as it seems to be to take them down.”

Just spilling all the truth tea!
