Bridesmaids actress Melissa McCarthy is not exactly the slimmest actress in the world but there is no denying that she is very talented. Melissa claims that she would love to one day wake up and have magically lost weight but accepts that she is healthy and that makes her happy enough.
In an interview with Good Housekeeping McCarthy said, “Sometimes I wish I were just magically a size six and I never had to give it a single thought. I am weirdly healthy, so I don't beat myself up about it - it wouldn't help, and I don't want to pass that on to my girls.”
She added, “Pretty much everyone I know, no matter what size, is trying some system. Even when someone gets to looking like she should be so proud of herself, instead she's like, 'I could be another three pounds less; I could be a little taller and have bigger lips'.”
Melissa continued, “Where does it end?... You just have to say, 'It's pretty damn good. I am right here at the moment and I'm okay with it. I've got other things to think about'.”
Melissa McCarthy can next be seen on the big screen, starring alongside Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann, Megan Fox and Jason Segel in the Judd Apatow movie This Is Forty, which is set to be released in the US on December 21 and then in the UK on February 14, 2013.
