Melissa McCarthy Reacts to the Final Words of 'Gilmore Girls'

Melissa McCarthy is spilling on what she thought of the last lines of the recent Gilmore Girls revival.

The 46-year-old actress hinted that she thought the last words left room for more.

“I had been waiting a long time to know, because [creator] Amy [Sherman-Palladino] had always said she knows exactly how it ends, but now it’s like, ‘Is that the last four words?’” she said in an interview with ET.

Melissa jokingly added, “”No [I wouldn't come back as Sookie], but I would come back as Lorelai. And that is a challenge to Lauren Graham.”

Pictured inside: Melissa and her husband Ben Falcone and the cast of Nobodies Hugh Davidson, Larry Dorf and Rachel Ramras during the 2017 Winter TCA Press Tour held at Langham Hotel on Friday (January 13) in Pasadena, Calif.

This Famous Chef Talks Replacing Melissa McCarthy's Sookie on 'Gilmore Girls'

While Melissa McCarthy could only film a short cameo in Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, the producers got some celeb chefs to replace her character Sookie in the series!

Rachael Ray was one of the chefs who filmed a small part and now she’s speaking out about the experience.

“I was so nervous. I mean, I’m not an actress. Everything we do is unscripted, but I was so impressed that the food stylist made all my food…She made all my real food, so it was kinda cool! I’ve only been real-fired once in life, and I was kind of embarrassed that I got fake-fired on the show, but if it brought back Melissa McCarthy, that’s fine with me,” Rachael told ET.

“Lauren I’ve known for years, she’s one of our favorite guests [on The Rachael Ray Show], and I just think she’s such a delight to be around,” Rachael added. “She makes everybody feel at ease. She’s so lovely and a great actress, [and she] calmed me right down on set!”

“[Stars Hollow] was so charming. Really the cutest film town ever and it reminded me of my hometown in upstate New York, so it was almost like a vacation,” Rachael gushed.

Melissa McCarthy's Family Will Make Cameos in 'Life of the Party'!

Melissa McCarthy is opening up about how her family members are pretty much always by her side!

The 46-year-old actress says some of them will even make cameos in her upcoming movie Life of the Party, which is being directed by her husband Ben Falcone.

“They’re in it because they are always on set,” Melissa told Entertainment Tonight.

The couple has reportedly even moved their two daughters, Vivian, 9, and Georgette, 6, to Atlanta, Ga., during the shoot.

“I like them to know that when we are here and not with them that we are actually working,” Melissa laughed. “I do think sometimes it’s good to come and see.”

“We pick up and move like a tribe,” she went on. “We don’t separate well. I get real weird without Ben and the kids. I get real squirrely. It’s too quiet … After 45 minutes of quiet I’m like, ‘Where is everybody?’”

Melissa and Ben even got their dads to appear in the film!

“It’s a little surreal to have my dad and then my father-in-law yelling at Maya Rudolph and I in the scene, but it’s really funny because they are getting into it,” Melissa added. “The more we do it, the longer their improvs get. I’m like, ‘Alright guys, wrap it up.’”

Life of the Party is set to hit theaters in 2018!
