Melissa McCarthy Responds to 'Ghostbusters' Critics

Melissa McCarthy sports a cute pair of specs while grabbing a bite to eat at Mozza Pizzeria on Saturday (May 28) in Los Angeles.

The 45-year-old actress was joined by her husband Ben Falcone.

Meanwhile, Melissa recently responded to Ghostbusters critics and Internet haters.

“All those comments, ‘You’re ruining my childhood!’ I mean, really,” Melissa told The Guardian, joking, “Four women doing any movie on earth will destroy your childhood?”

She added, “I have a visual of those people not having a Ben, not having friends, so they’re just sitting there and spewing hate into this fake world of the Internet. I just hope they find a friend.”
