But would she be a good boss? Her new film The Boss hit theaters this weekend, and the funny woman took to discussing whether or not she’d make a good boss in real life — and how she manages people around her for her career!

The former Gilmore Girls actress spoke to PEOPLE about bossin’ up, telling them about how inspired she gets over powerful women… and how she approaches that tricky double standard:

“I love that kind of woman. The whole thing of if a man does that, they’re a genius, but if a woman does it, it’s like, ‘What a b*tch’ … there’s something really amazing to that kind of energy.”

Of course, McCarthy has been a boss before — she has a few executive producer credits to her name — and so she opined on what it’s like to run things in the real world, too:

“I hope I’m a good boss. I think I’m a really collaborative boss. I don’t believe in my way or the highway; it’s not how we make movies. If I hire someone, I hire you because I want your ideas. I want to know what you’re thinking and I want to hear your opinion … I’m not that fragile. I want input.”


Her one pet peeve as a boss, though?

Well… it’s probably the same as a lot of you:

“That makes me crazy. I am never late. I would fire you on the spot. Any time someone’s late, they’re also the person who, for the first 20 minutes they show up, they’re like ‘Oh my God, I haven’t even had coffee.’ Not only are you a half-hour late, but now the first half-hour is you spitting out about being late. There’s a thing called an alarm clock, guys. If you can’t be on time, I doubt I’d really trust you with bigger things.”
