Melissa McCarthy: EW's Queen of Comedy!

Melissa McCarthy: EW's Queen of Comedy!

Melissa McCarthy channels Queen Elizabeth on the cover of Entertainment Weekly‘s latest issue, on newsstands Friday (October 28).

Here’s what the 41-year-old Bridesmaids actress had to share:

On breaking down on the last day of working on Bridesmaids: “I felt like school had ended and I was saying goodbye to all my best friends and it would never be this perfect again.”

On a blogger’s comment about her weight: “My first thought was ‘Gosh, I hope she doesn’t have a daughter.’ And then after a second I thought, ‘What a sad, troubled person. You’re making such a s—ty judgment on people.’ Do I sometimes hope I wake up in the morning and people are like, ‘What’s wrong with her? She looks emaciated,’ ” she says. “Of course I would love that. I’m such a clothes whore I would love the opportunity to be a hanger. But I think I’m more confident than I’ve ever felt in my life. I always thought it was worth the fight. Now I know it is.”

I don’t know if she’s the best comedy actress, and I’m sure lots of people disagree that she is, but she’s good and adorable, so… why bother? :)

I like her perspective a lot and think people could learn from her. She lets her talent speak for itself and doesn’t concern herself with things like weight and looks. I think she does a great job dressing even if she’s not the “clothes hanger” she sooo desires to be haha (only joking about the desiring part)

well now she is known for her size, she is known this way.
the roles she is getting are related to her current look so if she lost weight, she would not get that work.
