Melissa McCarthy Lost a $9,000 Wig While Filming 'Tammy'!

Melissa McCarthy Lost a $9,000 Wig While Filming 'Tammy'!

Melissa McCarthy does some shopping with family and friends at Living Spaces on Thursday (July 3) in Los Angeles.

The 43-year-old actress stars in the new comedy Tammy and she appeared on Chelsea Lately this week to tell a story about how she lost an expensive wig while filming a jet ski scene for the movie.

“We were just doing a test,” Melissa said. “It’s hard to shoot on water because everything’s moving…so we did a test and I’m like, ‘Isn’t it a great idea if I’m in full wig and costume? Because if we shoot some stuff, maybe it’s usable.’ And I’m like, ‘I’m kind of amazing at this,’ because I’m really a couple steps ahead. I don’t really know how to ride a jet ski—I’ve never been on one before.”

“All I heard was ‘faster’ and ‘dig in.’ So I literally cranked it up I’m going like 45 miles per hour, thinking, ‘Oh, god, I’m not skilled. I shouldn’t be doing this. But the camera’s getting it, so maybe it’ll look good and we’re ahead of schedule.’ I’m like, ‘Now I’ll dig in.’ And I flipped that thing at 45 miles an hour,” Melissa added. “I don’t remember ever leaving it. All of a sudden, I literally was like, ‘I’m in water.’ I didn’t know if I was up or down and I thought, ‘Holy god, I’ve got that wig on.’ We don’t have a huge budget and a wig’s like $9,000…which, by the way, had like 35 pins in it. You couldn’t rip it off my head.”

    Who cares if she lost a wig!

  • don

    she represents the obese american population

  • like

    I don’t think she uses the word “like” enough when she talks.

  • Terry Vanderpuke

    You should try and lose 100 pounds instead

  • Jeff

    Internet trolls making comments on her weight. Go suck a dick… Oh wait,

  • Alex

    Pssshh, you trolls are probably overweight too

  • Jay

    Why does this obnoxious cow get so much attention?

  • jps

    Is this what we call news? Who cares?

  • Mitzi

    FACT: Judgmental people do not discriminate. They judge everyone the same way, with cruel and hurtful words. So, to the friends and family of Don, Terry V, and Jay — BEWARE. You can bet your beloved son, brother, friend is saying similar things about you behind your back.

    Why did I scroll down to a comment section on a story involving a talented and attractive but large woman? Guys, there’s a very simple solution if you aren’t in to an actress. Don’t click on the f**king story.

  • russ bunya

    An empty headed vapid seaword that no one gives a ship about.

  • AshleyLove

    Wow, she got bigger. She’s still a cutie and funny, tho.

  • Geez

    I like Melissa and think she is a great talent. However, she really needs to lose some weight. It seems she has gained more since her career started growing. She does not have to be skinny by any means just lose 50-100 pounds would be good for her short frame. she has made a lot of money over the years and can afford a trainer and nutritionist to help her live longer for her family and hopefully get her better movie roles. I heard Tammy is awful and I think that HW is using her as a gag joke now and not the awesome comedic actress she truly is.

  • sue

    She is obese. I have no interest in seeing her in a movie again. Get some self control Melissa.

  • Desperado12

    How does this morbidly obese woman keep getting movie deals? It’s quite amazing but I’m sure there are a lot of people out there that think it’s hilarious to watch a hugely obese woman trying to be funny. It’s hard to believe none of these directors can’t find a woman that is actually healthy and funny.. But hell that’s too easy so instead picked the fattest woman you can find and let’s put her in movies.. That sells tickets.

    She must have a big s.n.a.t.c.h if her wig cost that much.
