Melissa McCarthy Assumed Her 'The Kitchen' Co-Star Elisabeth Moss Would Be 'Intense'!

Melissa McCarthy and Elisabeth Moss hit James Corden‘s couch together on last night’s (August 6) episode of The Late Late Show with James Corden!

Host James asked the 48-year-old actress about meeting her The Kitchen co-star Elisabeth, 37, for the first time, and Melissa admitted she expected someone far more intimidating, possibly harnessing super powers.

“Not what my first impression was but more of what I thought and geared myself up for. I’m sure like everyone, I’m a pretty weird fan of Elisabeth and everything she’s ever done so I was like, ‘it’s going to be intense’,” Melissa recalled. “I was like, ‘it’s going to be intense, I’m going to try and not make a full of myself, I want to keep up and I’m going to be super prepared. I did have an image of her walking into a room being like ‘I am Elisabeth Moss’ with just like flames in the background.”

“She’s not like that at all,” Melissa assured. “We got along right away and she’s a great enabler.”

Melissa McCarthy also talked about her annual challenge to make elaborate birthday cakes — and judging by the photos, she lacks in design skills.
