    In my world, I see my friends as friends not sizes, races, or levels of educations. We have many common experiences that connect us and different experiences from which we share and learn. Our bond is what is in our hearts, not our eyes.

    our eyes

    I love how funny, talented, smart, authentic and grounded Melissa McCarthy is. She has wonderful acting chops. In Mike and Molly and on Gilmore Girls her characters were strong women who were also very feminine, pretty, soft and kind. This new character looks very fun, quirky and bold. Whatever she’s playing, we need more of it. I hope I get to see Bridesmaids and her the movie she is writing soon too!!!

    Love Melissa – she’s a fantastic talent.

    I was a poor skinny girl that people made fun of sometimes, but guess what, the hurt wore off real fast because the big girls were getting it way worse than I was. I could fit everything in the store and low and behold all the actresses and models looked like me. I was told the way I looked was the ideal. I’m now the big girl and I feel better about the woman I am that I ever did when I was thin, but the world says I’m not the way anyone should look, and I shouldn’t like myself. If I manage to whittle my way back down good on me but I’m not going to hide in my house for fear off offending the douche bags that have been posting here about how it hurts their eyes to see fat people. It hurts my soul to be on the planet with ignoramuses like yourselves, but I get by. I love Mike and Molly and Melissa is a a kick a$$ woman.

    I’ve seen Melissa McCarthy in real life and she is one of the most stunning women I’ve ever seen. I’m not saying despite her weight or because of it. She simply glows. All the haters can sit behind their computers and jerk off to pictures of The Price is Right models all they want. Melissa is way out of your league, believe me.

    I have known Missy since she was an acting student in NYC where she was turning heads at showcases both comic and dramatic. She deserves all the kudos and more. She is superbly talented. And a stellar person to boot. HOORAY!

    wow some people on this post have a lot mean things to say about someone they haven’t met!

    I fell in love with her on Gilmore Girls, and I’m going to see the movie because of her

    LOVE Melissa McCarthy!
    She is such a talented actress – I watch Mike & Molly weekly and she is so right in regards to the Marie Claire article…that person should not be a writer!!!

  • Melissa

    Regardless of your opinion on Melissa’s weight, a look at the comments here suggest what is all too true for many women of any size: we are judged too often for how we look versus who we are or what we bring to the world.

    • Kim

      I agree. Some people are ignorant, some say it just to get a rise, but as a whole most of the comments sicken me that people are so shallow and think so little of the feelings of others.

  • Golda

    Thanks for this fabulous interview. I agree — she should be a big deal movie star.

  • Emily

    I watched the movie last night and must say that Melissa McCarthy pretty much stole the movie. I love her in Bridesmaids, am a big (figuratively and literally)fan of Mike and Molly and am very much looking forward to her next project.

  • LyGypsy

    I adore Melissa McCarthy. I freaking hate Judd’s movies, but I will see Melissa in ANYTHING.
