Melissa McCarthy: ‘I’ve Been Skinny’

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

"The Heat" New York City Premiere - ArrivalsBUSTY Melissa McCarthy says she’s more content now than when she was younger and slimmer.

The actress insist being thinner didn’t make her happier.

“I’ve been every size in the world,” she said.

“Parts of my twenties, I was in great shape, but I didn’t appreciate it. If I was a 6 or an 8, I thought, why aren’t I a 2 or a 4?”

Melissa — who raises Vivian, 6, and 3-year-old Georgette with husband Ben Falcone — admits that she was fixated on her appearance during early adulthood, but changed her priorities after becoming a mom.

“I bought into it — I should be taller, thinner, have better hair,” McCarthy explains.

“But I think that’s part of being young. Now, especially with kids, you lose any sense of time or energy to worry about all the little stuff.”
