Melissa McCarthy: “No one’s asking a man, how do you keep your legs in shape?”

On being asked about her 75 pound weight loss:

I just find it dumb and boring. I really do. No one’s asking a man, how do you keep your legs in shape? Which I’ve been asked. I think every time we categorize people—by weight, by race, by gender—we put them in boxes and it’s not a good thing for the world.

On being 47 in Hollywood:

I’ve never minded getting older… I’ve never had that thing of, Why can’t I still be 35?’ The older you are, the more interesting you are as a character. There’s a whole life history and knowledge of the world and self-possession that come from someone who has seen more. That experienced point of view is always more exciting. Yes, things may start to sag and shift, but the older you are, the wiser, the funnier, the smarter you are. You become more you.

… says Melissa.

On her modeling career:

I’m very lucky I was born a certain way. When I started out, the [fashion] industry was more playful and not as calculated. Now, because of social media, everyone knows everything – there’s all these 15-year-old girls who know all the big photographers and fashion designers.I was a naive girl who barely spoke English. Being shy didn’t help, so I basically said nothing all day. I was homesick a lot, but, step by step, I grew into it.
