Melissa McCarthy: Angelina Jolie Is So Beautiful

Melissa McCarthy: Angelina Jolie Is So Beautiful

Melissa McCarthy makes an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Thursday (January 26).

The 41-year-old Bridesmaids actress, who was recently nominated for an Oscar, chatted with Ellen about attending the Golden Globe Awards for the first time.

On meeting Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie: “So I’m already in some weird altered state talking to Brad and Angelina. They’re so nice and chatty and really bubbly. Finally, I got a little weird and I was like you have to stop for a minute because it’s a lot visually to take in. I said that to them. They just kind of laughed. I said, no really. It is a lot visually to take in. She’s like weirdly glowing. She’s so beautiful. He’s kind of cute too. And then I was like ok. I’m sorry. I needed to like regroup because they’re kind of a lot.”

On meeting Meryl Streep: “As I’m talking to them somebody is pulling on my hand and I hear Melissa, Melissa. And I turned around and she said, Hi, I’m Meryl. Literally like my brain snapped in two. And then I really didn’t know what to say. I just kept going ‘Oh, my god. You’re Meryl Streep.’ And she was chatting like a normal human being. And I said, ‘oh my god. I’m sorry.’ I thought over the years so many things if I ever got to meet you what I would say. This is not it. And, she goes ‘Oh my god. Don’t even worry about it.’ For some reason I felt I need to bookend it with and repeat. ‘Oh my god. You’re Meryl Streep.’”

    I seen rented Bridesmaid over last weekend and thoought it was so funny!! Not understanding why some are up in arms over them getting nominated, just a really funny well put together movie. Congrats to you Melissa. I think Brad and Angelina are awsome too :)

  • teri

    Sorry for the above spelling.

  • Gloria

    Thank you very much Melissa for confirming the International known Truth!!!!!!!!!!!! Angie is the most beautiful woman in the world! Forget about ugly maniston being shoved down our throats!

  • Mimi

    I seriously do not get the hype over “Brangelina”. He’s got a girly turned up nose and is prettier than Angelina. She’s all lips and b-obs with stick arms and legs. If I were Melissa I would have been way more excited to meet someone as TALENTED as Meryl Streep!

  • Kim

    Loved Braidesmaid ,again someone who has met Brad and Angie talks about how nice they are

  • kls

    i really like Melissa, great actress

  • Elena

    She stole Carey Mulligan’s nomination.

  • Deedee

    I love, love, love Melissa. I’m so happy for her success.

  • Lola

    She stole Shailene Woodley’s nomination. I’m so disgusted…

  • Marsha

    @Mimi: I agree with you 100%. If anyone is beautiful it is Melissa

  • schoolidiot

    I really feel sorry for this woman.

  • theresa

    no, Melissa did not steal the nomination from Shailene Woodley or Carey Mulligan. She didn’t have that kind of power. Want to blame someone then blame the people who gave her the nomination.

  • giuseppe sallo

    She deserved the nomination. Btw, Melissa is so hilarious in “Mike & Molly”.

  • Phil Esteen

    AJ wishes she were as BEAUTIFLY as Melissa Mac.

  • Saffron

    What a lovely woman…she seems so sweet and real. She deserves her success & nomination. Good luck to her!

  • Kirsten

    Love her, she is hilarious. I noticed no one ever has anything bad to say about Brad/Angelina. Angelina is gorgeous. I saw her once and she is more stunning in real life than in photos.

  • miss infamous

    I like her

  • Leenah

    I have loved her since Gilmore girls,she’s so funny.I’m happy she is appreciated now,at last! She deserves this..I wish her the best.

  • Golddustwoman

    Who cares if she ‘deserves’ it more or less than another actress. She’s nominated and she’s excited and good luck to her. I hope she enjoys the experience.
    Even celebrities gush about Brad and Angelina. I’ve seen them at awards shows too and they are in an Olympian fame and glamour league of their own if the reaction of the crowds and the other actors is anything to go by. It’s the way it is, a few detractors on internet forums isn’t going to change it.

  • Saffron

    Rock on Golddustwoman. Sorry….just had to say it – I’m a big Stevie fan :) I do mean it though….ITAWY!

  • Mimi

    @Marsha: Thank you. Everyone on this site gives me a thumbs down if I dare write that I don’t find Brad Pitt attractive. What’s up with that? They’re all the same people bashing LeAnn Rimes – hypocrites!

  • coco

    I’m french and I saw an interview of Jean Dujardin and Berenice and they said that there were very sweet to and it’s true that Angelina is glowing everytime

  • I say…

    I personally encountered & chatted with Angelina and WOW she is gorgeous and so down to earth and Nothing like what others portray her to be.

  • hdsdf

    I know who rules the net now! No offense but beautiful thin se* symbol celebs get bahsed 24/7 yet Melissa types you can see everywhere at every local grocery store, and trust NO ONE is thinking they are beautiful….too funny. I guess fat women rule the internet bashing the thin beauties. gotta laugh out loud how we can only compliment the fugs but call every mean name in the book to the men you bf’s/hubby’s wish they had.

  • True

    Met Angelina Jolie in NYC and I have to agree with Melissa. She’s too much to visually take in. Like so goddamnnn stunning. Her features and eyes are just, there are no words. Pictures don’t do her justice. Trust me!

  • Nat

    The truth is nobody not even other celebs or interviewers dare criticize Oprah,Brad, Angelina, Clooney cause the Entertainment Elites will come down on you like a hammer.
    They are a protected class cause of their politics.

  • Helen

    She has a bright smile

  • hi

    @hdsdf: that’s because they can relate to the fat and ugly type, and not the thin gorgeous supermodel types.

  • Ellen

    Angie beauty may be debatable but theres NO DOUBT Melissa has WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more talent! Good luck at the Oscars girlfriend!

  • Pat

    @I say…:

    I wonder how “down to earth” she is with other beautiful women like Halle Berry Megan Fox and Miranda Kerr? I cant help but notice that you NEVER see her with an equally beautiful woman or someone close to her beauty–and YES fans the women I mentioned are!. Gwen Stefanni is the only one she hangs out with and for not too long it seems…..

  • Pat


    Ditto! Meryl is beautiful and has been married to the same man for yrs has no scandal in her life and IS THE BEST ACTRESS IN THE COUNTRY! And worked hard to be that without any connections or having to hook up with anyone more popular then she is!

  • Pat

    @Phil Esteen:

    And as talented!

  • carrienae

    That was funny and cute!

  • FactsNot Fiction

    to Pat: Google can be your friend. Angie has been photographed with Kate Winslet, Renee Zellweger, Queen Latifa, Charlize Theron, Kerry Washington, Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, . Salma Hayak, Meryl Streep, etc..
    Bad part of these blogs is fools can print any old lie without any proof or logic

  • Brandy

    Leann Rimes is not nice to look at in any way.

  • Marie

    LOL @ Melissa! She’s a mess (in a good way). Talented and hilarious as hell. I’m not surprised that her meeting Brad, Angie and my all time fave actress Meryl Streep was a lesson in surrealism that left her gawking and gushing like most of us would be if in her shoes. The thing I have always like best about all 3 of these actors is their sense of having common sense and not buying into their own publicity. This is what they do for a living it does not define the quality of human being they are or the genuine and selfless acts of kindness towards others be it charitable work or just the taking good care of their families and significant others and staying grounded while living under public scrutiny 25/8. Good for them and great for Melissa! LOL

  • Deedee


    Is Angie supposed to go seek out these “more beautiful” women? What a useless way to spend time. Is that what you do with your time?

  • Yoda

    She’s such a silly suck!

  • Also Pat

    She has been photographed with Halle Berry.

  • guest

    I saw Angelina Jolie @ the Siam Reap airport in Cambodia in 2008, she barely had any make up on but yet she was so beautiful just like an angel in person, everyone stared at her, it was hard for the people who saw her to take it all in, she did smiled back to everyone and gave her friendly waved and everyone were so speechless. She is breathtakingly beautiful in every way, her photos don’t do any justice at all.

  • Who cares?

    AJ’s day in the sun will be over before you know it. She’s 36 ppl! In another 10 years…. 10 VERY SHORT YEARS, you all will not be saying anything like this. That’s how fast the time will fly. You might still call her beautiful, but she will be “middle aged” beautiful and that is never the same kind of physical beauty a young woman has. Time sure has a way of evening the playing field.


    Steven Speilberg is going to do a remake of the TEN COMMANDMENTS. Put your ballots in for Angie to play MOSES!

  • an opinion

    MM is so talented and funny. But this movie looks bad. Hopefully she will get better scripts in the future.

  • an opinion

    MM has a nice meeting with Brad and Angelina. It is her opinion how she felt when she met them. Stop whining and overreacting when someone gives them a compliment.

  • Logan

    I work as flight crew for a major airline and we carried Angelina and Brad, her beauty is ethereal, I don’t think I have ever seen anyone so beautiful, took my breath away, seriously. She is also extremely lovely, very personable, gorgeous couple and so in love.
