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!

Melissa McCarthy rocks a plaid shirt and a top knot while running errands on Saturday afternoon (July 30) in Los Angeles.

The day before, the 45-year-old actress and her husband Ben Falcone were spotted grabbing a morning coffee together.

Ben recently opened up about writing with Melissa.

“Well, you know Melissa and I, we do a lot of writing in the car. Because it’s one of the only times we’re sort of just with each other and driving around,” Ben told Splitsider.com. “Literally we’ve written stuff on napkins and stuff like that, I don’t know why. I really should just get a notebook in my car, but it’s almost like if I got a notebook in my car then it wouldn’t be a special place where we’re not supposed to write.”
