Will Melissa McCarthy Appear in 'Gilmore Girls' Revival After All?

Melissa McCarthy is opening up about the upcoming Netflix revival of Gilmore Girls.

The 45-year-old actress, who starred as Sookie on the beloved WB series, sadly won’t be appearing with the rest of the cast.

“I don’t think I am,” Melissa told E!‘s Marc Malkin. “I didn’t actually get asked to do it. But I think they thought I was busy, and then by the time it did come up, then I actually was.”

She added, “I’m actually thrilled that it’s happening. I loved that show, and I think the fans for that show are super loyal and great and I will watch every single one of them.”

Meanwhile, her former co-star Milo Ventimiglia recently revealed that his character Jess is returning to Stars Hollow “a little salty.”

Melissa McCarthy on Women Who Say They're Not Feminists: 'That Sounds So Dumb'

Melissa McCarthy shows off her slimmed down figure on the cover of Redbook magazine’s April 2016 issue, on newsstands March 15.

Here’s what the 45-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On people who say they’re not feminists: “I always think, ‘Oh, that sounds so dumb.’ And I don’t mean that in a hateful way. It just sounds so ill-informed. Do you think women should be paid less? You don’t believe in equality for women? I think people have worked hard to put a negative spin on the word.”

On judging other women: “With women, there’s this constant weird cultural thing where we’re always supposed to be comparing ourselves with one another. Who wore it best? Whose butt’s better? Instead, how about if everyone wins? How intensely boring would it be if we were all the same?”

On talking to her daughters about body image: “Give me your best punch in the face, and I’ll take that punch, rather than have my kid feel bad about herself….There’s an epidemic in our country of girls and women feeling bad about themselves based on what .5% of the human race looks like. It starts very young. My message is that as long as everybody’s healthy, enjoy and embrace whatever body type you have.”
