There's no funnier actress in Hollywood right now than Melissa McCarthy. The mom of two daughters with husband Ben Falcone (they recently celebrated their 14th anniversary) and Midwest native has made a name for herself on television with her roles on Gilmore Girls and Mike and Molly. And shes of course a bonafide movie star, with films like Bridesmaids, Ghostbusters, and the soon-to-be-released Superintelligence in December 2019 as well. But she's been an inspiration when it comes to other *big* topics on the minds of so many women: weight loss and body positivity.
Besides her work on the screen (as well as producing), McCarthy, who turned 49 in August 2019, has been candid about discussing her weight and health journey as a superstar in Hollywood. Shes been open, honest, and of course, hilarious, about what its been like to have her body as a topic that's constantly in the spotlight and how she navigates that.
