On the goals of her new plus-size clothing brand:

“I always said, ‘Why can’t I find great stuff?’ I’m doing all sizes. It’s a strange thing to stop at a certain size. Women don’t, so why should clothes?”

On being fashionable at every size:

“I’ve been every size on the planet. 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.”

… says Melissa.

On struggling with self-image:

“In my 20s I used to cry about why I wasn’t thinner or prettier, but I want to add that I also used to cry about things like: ‘I wish my hair would grow faster. I wish I had different shoes … ‘ I was an idiot … It’s a decade of tears.”

On criticism:

“I’ve never felt like I needed to change. I’ve always thought, ‘If you want somebody different, pick somebody else.’ But sure, criticism can sometimes still get to me. Some things are so malicious, they knock the wind out of you.”

On an article referencing her as “America’s plus-size sweetheart”:

“It’s like I’m managing to achieve all this success in spite of my affliction … Would you ever put that in the headline for a male star?”

… says Melissa.

On why she felt the need to start a line of plus-size clothing:

“When I go shopping, most of the time I’m disappointed. Two Oscars ago, I couldn’t find anybody to do a dress for me. I asked five or six designers—very high-level ones who make lots of dresses for people—and they all said no.”

… says Melissa.
