You might of seen Melissa McCarthy in films such as Bridesmaids, Tammy and The Heat being the bubbly person she is.
Although, if you’ve seen her recently you’ll of seen that she looks unrecognisable.
Over the past year, McCarthy has been hitting the dieting hard and has lost a fair share of pounds.
The weight loss comes as she prepares to star in biographical drama Can You Ever Forgive Me?
McCarthy explained she has been losing weight over a long period of time.
In total, Melissa has lost around 75Ib. You go girl!
“I’ll be up, I’ll be down, probably for the rest of my life.
The thing is, if that is the most interesting thing about me, I need to go have a lavender farm in Minnesota and give this up.
If I, off the top of my head, name 20 of the most amazing women in my life, it’s all shapes, sizes, ages, colours, jobs.
I can only go off my reality. What people pass off as ‘normal’, I just have to keep in my head that it’s bullshit.”
She also mentioned that the perfect figure is just a myth.
“I know some of those women in those magazines, who get called perfect or whose butt is supposedly better, and often they don’t even look like that in person.”
Her upcoming film, which stars McCarthy as Lee Israel who’s the main role, alongside Richard E. Grant as her loyal friend, Jack is called Can You Ever Forgive Me?
Israel was a well known writer/author who wrote books on high profile women such as Estee Lauder, Katharine Hepburn and Dorothy Kilgallen.
Due to the change in the publishing industry, Israel found it a struggle to get any of her biographies published as her money was drying up quick.
Israel then ended up being broke and was unable to pay her rent, so found herself needing to make money fast.
With the help of her friend Jack who had recently been released from jail for armed robbery, she began forging letters from playwrights, writers and actors and started selling them on for profit.
Israel then ends up in a spot of bother, so instead of forging the letters, her and Jack began stealing legitimate ones, which results in them landing in even more hot water.
Melissa has gone far lately with the change in direction in film and of course, losing the excess pounds.
McCarthy’s new film Can You Ever Forgive Me? is set to be released on October 19th, 2018.
Looking forward to it!
