Melissa McCarthy Says Motherhood Gave Her New Perspective On Her Body

Bridesmaids‘ star and Emmy-winning ‘Mike & Molly‘ actress Melissa McCarthy opens up about accepting her body after motherhood, launching her own clothing line, and being asked to host ‘Saturday Night Live‘.

Melissa and her husband Ben Falcone share two children – Vivian, 4, and Georgette, 1 and she says that giving birth to them has made her body insecurities seem minor:

“The stupid stuff like what I wear or how I look I can’t control, so I just try not to give too much energy to it,” she says, calling her body a work in progress after giving birth to Georgette. “At 20, I would have been like: ‘Don’t they like me? Was it my hair?’ At 41, I think the things that define me, I hope, are a lot more than those kinds of petty things.”

She says that she is so fed up with trying to find good clothes in her size that she’s co-designing her own line:

“Trying to find stuff that’s still fashion-forward in my size is damn near impossible. It’s either for like a 98-year-old woman or a 14-year-old hooker, and there is nothing in the middle,”

This Saturday she’ll be hosting SNL for the first time and shared her initial reaction to the news:

“I went into such an embarrassing, weird, inappropriately loud cry.  I’m bent over, literally, in the rug section of Living Spaces, wailing.”
