Melissa McCarthy: My Daughters Aren’t Allowed to Watch Bridesmaids Yet
Melissa McCarthy’s children have yet to see her filthy, hilarious, awesome performance in Bridesmaids. McCarthy’s real-life husband, Ben Flacone, played her love interest in the 2011 hit Bridesmaids. But their daughters haven’t been able to see mom and dad on the big screen yet. “I have little tiny kids so they’ve seen Mike & Molly, but they haven’t seen Bridesmaids and they won’t see this for a while either,” the CBS star said of her new flick.

Melissa McCarthy is not your best friend anymore
To watch Melissa McCarthy as lovable chef Sookie St. James on seven seasons of the Gilmore Girls was to see an actress perfect the art of playing a sidekick. The moment feels prescient now. McCarthy’s brief, profane appearances in This Is 40 crack the movie open. With the new comedy Identity Thief, she gets a starring role. It might be great. It might be terrible. Either way, it’s hers, and for now at least, she’s a puppet off the strings, landing parts she wasn’t supposed to get in big movies where no one expects her to fade into the background, playing characters who need best friends of their own.

Melissa McCarthy shines on the cover of Michigan Avenue magazine’s current issue.

Melissa McCarthy steals identities, hearts in “Identity Thief”
Melissa McCarthy is a credit card stealing con, and her prey is Jason Bateman in the new comedy “Identity Thief.” Bateman is also a producer on the film, and early on he knew casting McCarthy would be the key to success. McCarthy liked the fact that this story blended her love of physical comedy with heart. Bateman says the transformation McCarthy’s character undergoes is one he can appreciate. All of McCarthy’s co-stars are now card carrying members of her fan club.
