Melissa McCarthy: Angelina Jolie Is So Beautiful
Melissa McCarthy makes an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Thursday (January 26).
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.’”
