'Ghostbusters' Cast Brings On the Slime for 'EW' Cover

Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon are featured in their Ghostbusters costumes on the cover of Entertainment Weekly‘s latest issue.

Here is what the ladies had to share with the mag:

Kristen on honoring the franchise’s legacy: “You can’t get better than the original. But it’s a different movie, it’s a different cast, it’s many years later, and we’ve also done things that are different. It’s not just about it starring women.”

Melissa on issues over the all-female cast: “I just thought, ‘Really? Are we still there?’ It’s a movie. I never gave it another thought. You just have to go, ‘Well, I hope you get out a little more. The world is fun.’ I really think it’s the minority.”

Bill Murray on making a cameo: “It was only ‘cause I knew these girls were funny.”

'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.”
