Melissa McCarthy has a new interview with Good Housekeeping magazine [via Radar Online], and she talks about her weight concerns and insecurities despite her solid career in television and film.
McCarthy says, “Sometimes I wish I were just magically a size 6 and I never had to give [my weight] a single thought. But 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. I don’t really know why I’m not thinner than I am. I don’t really drink soda; I don’t have a sweet tooth, and we eat healthfully at home.”
She also adds that it’s becoming an issue in our country, where young woman feel like no matter what size and shape they are, they are never happy with themselves.
She says, “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.’ Where does it end? You just have to say, It’s pretty damn good. I am right here at the moment and I’m OK with it. I’ve got other things to think about.”
