Melissa McCarthy Looks So Fierce & Funny on 'Rolling Stone' Cover!

Melissa McCarthy keeps it fierce on the cover of Rolling Stone‘s Summer Double issue, out on newsstands Friday (June 20)!

Here’s what the 43-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On doing standup as a drag queen when she started her career in comedy: “I really dressed to rival a drag queen, for sure. I had a gold lamé swing coat on, a huge wig, big eyelashes,” McCarthy recalls. “I talked about being incredibly wealthy and beautiful and living extravagantly.”

On rambling about dolphin sex during her Bridesmaids audition: “There’s not one thing you could have done to seem any stranger. Sex with a dolphin? Handplay with a dolphin! You just could not have been any weirder.”

On her self-destructive habits: “I could eat healthier, I could drink less. I should be learning another language and working out more, but I’m just always saying, ‘Ah, I could get hit by a bus tomorrow.’”

    She’s a bully. She gets mad at beautiful women as if she had the right to destroy them.

    I’m sorry, but she is obese. She should make the effort to lose weight for her own health. And, she’s a mom. Think about your health for your future and raising your kids.

  • Pat

    She’s ignorant. the fact that she doesn’t take care of her health shows that she doesn’t know what it is to struggle with your body and life. she’s taking advantage of life.

    I have loved her since she was Sookie on Gilmore Girls but, she really shouldn’t be that lackadaisical and toss-away about her girth. It would be one thing if she didn’t have kids and that dismissive about it but, she IS a mom and I think she might want to ponder some things. John Candy was funny as H as was his little bro Chris and they both dropped dead from weight related issues + over indulged lifestyles and they aren’t alone. Melissa and Gabby Sidibe need to get for real about some things. It’s the same for someone “deliberately” ultra emaciated. Everybody isn’t naturally thin and everybody isn’t going to be naturally thin and that’s cool. I’m not talking about “healthy” weight for one’s frame and I think most know that’s what I’m talking about.

    @Love The Shoes: shut up!

    Is it possible to love her and loathe her at the same time?
