Melissa McCarthy wants to dress women of every size
Actress Melissa McCarthy has been making people laugh for years on the TV show Mike & Molly and movies like Bridesmaids and Spy. She has also been what Refinery29 calls a "role model" for plus-sized women. But she told the website in a 2016 interview, "It never occurs to me in terms of being a role model, though, because I don't know any perfect women. If I, off the top of my head, name 20 of the most amazing women in my life, it's all shapes, sizes, ages, colors, jobs." Besides, as this Hollywood insider knows, even the perfect are not so perfect. "I know some of those women in those magazines who get called perfect or whose butt is supposedly better," she shared, "and often they don't even look like that in person."
As of this writing, the Ghostbusters actress has lost a significant amount of weight that In Touch Weekly estimated to be 75 pounds, although McCarthy has not revealed the exact number. When Refinery29 asked her about it, she shared, "I have, but I'll be back again. 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. There has to be something more."
In 2014, McCarthy started a fashion line for women of all sizes. She told WWD that she has been "every size on the planet," noting, " I have experience dressing me as a 6, a 12 and more. And when you go above a size 12, you don't lose your love of fashion." - More
