Quotables: Melissa McCarthy Used to Be A Cheerleader

“I remember being in a pep rally, and I heard one of the coaches of the boys’ teams making a dumb joke about the dumb cheerleaders, and I thought, Are you kidding me? I’m out there doing back handsprings and aerials on blacktop to cheer for your stupid team that, by the way, is not doing that well. And you’re in here with the guys making fun of it? I was like, I’m done.”

Melissa McCarthy being all “Girl please.”

It’s really no secret how much I love and admire and respect and sort of idolize this lady, and it’s only getting more intense with each passing day. Are you guys feeling it too, or am I pining alone? Also I suppose we could get into that age old debate about whether or not cheerleading is a sport or hard or whatever.
