Melissa McCarthy is well accustomed to creating some of the funniest moments in film, and this weekend she continues to do just that. Starring in a new movie, The Boss, McCarthy channels a wealthy business mogul that gets arrested for insider trading. When forced to have a new outlook on life, McCarthy’s character creates an empire from brownie sales.
When is Melissa McCarthy NOT boss status?
1.) Melissa studied fashion at Southern Illinois University. She dropped out at the age of 20 to move to New York City. However, she took her knowledge of fashion along with her throughout her career and now has her own line called Melissa McCarthy Seven7.
2.) She’s great friends with Sandra Bullock. The two badasses starred in The Heat together back in 2013.
3.) Melissa took home the “Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series” Oscar for her role in Mike and Molly.
4.) Megan from Bridesmaids is relatable AF.
5.) She KILLED it during a recent Lip Sync Battle with Jimmy Fallon. Legendary, basically.
To that agent who told Melissa she would never be an actress until she lost weight… How you feeling now?
