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 skiâ€”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.”
