'Ghostbusters' Actresses Cover Elle's First Women in Comedy Issue!

The women of GhostbustersMelissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon, and Kristen Wiig – take the cover of Elle magazine’s first Women in Comedy issue, on newsstands June 21.

Here’s what they had to share with the mag:

Melissa, on fighting for her characters: “I get so psychotically attached to all of my characters, and I fight for them in probably the most annoying way. I hear myself saying to Ben or Paul [Feig, Ghostbusters’ director], ‘She wouldn’t phrase it that way.’ I know it’s such an actory thing, but I feel it to my core: I have to represent the woman I’m getting to be. Even if she’s fictitious, she’s always real to me: three-dimensional, flawed, loving, screwed-up, as real women are.”

Leslie, on knowing she was funny: “I just knew that I was funny, and I knew that it was just a matter of time. I didn’t know what was going to actually happen—this is definitely way bigger than I thought—but I knew there was no way I was going to be that funny and nobody was going to notice it.”

Kristin, on the first thing she did for SNL: “My very first show I got on something that I wrote. I was weirdly less nervous for that than I was for the first sketch I was in, which was about someone being pregnant in their butt. I think it was Poehler, and we had a baby shower for her and…I was scared that I was going to freeze or swear or pass out.”
