As if there were ever any doubt, right? Melissa McCarthy is always sassy and fabulous: that’s sort of her job.
Just in case you needed recent proof of awesomeness though, here are a few quotes from an interview she did with Entertainment Weekly:
On comedy: “Comedy to me is all about the bumps and bruises and weird tics,” says McCarthy. “It’s everything you find out about somebody when you fall in love with them that on paper is really creepy but you find adorable.”
On her teenage years: “There was a three-year chunk as a teen where I should have been tranquilized and put in a cage.”
On embarrassing her daughters: If her daughters ever try to pull some of the crap she did in high school, she has a plan. “I will embarrass my kids to their core. I will threaten to show up in hot pants and a tube top. Their dad will drive me. And he’ll let me and my friend Lisa get pretty drunk in the backseat and we will come into that party and just rip it up.”
On her body image: “Do I sometimes hope I wake up in the morning and people are like, ‘What’s wrong with her? She looks emaciated,’?” she says. “Of course I would love that. I’m such a clothes whore I would love the opportunity to be a hanger. But I think I’m more confident than I’ve ever felt in my life.”
God, I just love this lady, don’t you? You do, right? If you don’t, may I ask what your problem is?
