Melissa McCarthy Is Now a Size 14 US


On her new size and how she lost 50 pounds:

I actually am a 14. No trick, nothing to tell, just super boring life. You bring it real down, you don’t do anything fun and you go to bed at 7:30 — that’s the trick. (My) husband will ask, “Is it five and are you in jammies?” “I’m gonna call them loungewear.”

… says 45 year-old Melissa, who is 5’2” / 157 cm.

  1. wow….. i love her, but that sounds boring as crap. Not to mention negative. How about some exercise to lose that weight? You have 2 kids that you can play more with and run after. Talk about the positive stuff… like eating healthy, or feeling better. ?????!!!!!

    BOO. 🙁

    • i think she’s still in the adjustment phase. Id be grumpy too if i lived carte blanche then had to reel in a lot all at once.
      i think in a year she’ll be in a habituated state and she’ll find her groove

      • if you ask me she doesn’t have anything to be grumpy about. her career is soaring, she’s got a great husband and kids. and she’s dropped 50 lbs. NOTHING to be grumpy about. for someone who’s life is all about comedy…. I’d expect a more sunny outlook.

  2. I don’t like this quote. Whatever your goal is, you need to find a way to enjoy the journey and make the most of it. This quote is not motivational at all

    • yes, there’s definitely a reason she’s been overweight……….. and now it’s happening to the kids (and it’s not their fault!!)

        • no, not young kids… sorry. they should have no problem with weight at that age…. kids should be running around playing and eating healthy. if they are overeating or not exercising it is the parent’s fault.

          • My sister was large at this young an age (I’m guessing around 8-9, which is when her problem started), and it was and still is a genetic problem. Kids this age may very well not be getting enough exercise as it is a common problem in America, but you can’t assume because you don’t know. There are those who are overweight even as infants linked to genetics, so you really can’t always assume, which I understand is easy to in our society.

          • its not genetics and its not lack of exercise, its called eating too much sugar. pretty simple. I know plenty of people who have been fat/chubby since being kids and they all eat too much, esp the sweets, despite exercising.

          • uhm young kids can be overweight too due to a thyroid problem etc. Thyroid problems can start from birth, especially if it works very slow, then you’ll gain weight no matter what because it affects their metabolism. I don’t know if these kids have it but it’s definitely possible.

          • But aside from the thyroid thing, it indeed can be controlled and these people have all the money in the world to pay for a trainer and chef to make healthy food for the kids and themselves.

          • yes, I understand that it could certainly be a health issue… and you’re right, they absolutely have the means to get help if that’s the problem.

            what bothers me is her quote… Melissa doesn’t seem to understand what being healthy means, and that it definitely doesn’t have to be “boring”. That means her mentality is being transferred to her kids.

      • I don’t think the poster was picking apart the child, necessarily, but Melissa’s upbringing of the child. I feel bad for overweight kids, because it’s not their fault. They don’t know any better and can’t be held responsible for their dietary choices for the most part. It’s on the parents.

        • That’s not necessarily the case though. I have five siblings and one of my sisters was the only one who “got the fat gene”. You can’t equate it to parenting, I know there’s definitely an overeating problem in America, but you can’t just assume and blame parents. It can be so much more than that, and even if it is behavioral, no need to be quick to judge. Obviously Melissa has been losing the weight, but maybe she doesn’t want her daughters to stress about body image or start dieting at a young age.

          • I can see where you’re coming from… but seeing Melissa’s quote here… it leads me to believe that she doesn’t know what being healthy means, and that to lose weight life has to be boring. Sorry, I just don’t buy it.

        • I am in total agreement here. Kids should not have a weight problem at this young age. And it’s not their fault.

          • It doesn’t matter the age, people can be obese even as infants, which can be linked to genetics, that’s the point I’m trying to make, and you’re right, either way it’s not the kid’s fault, and yes, it is sad. Yeah, there’s a good likelihood that Melissa being large and her daughter being large are linked, but even still you can’t assume that the reason her daughter is large is because of diet only. Of course the parents have some control over it, but like I said previously, maybe they worry about their daughter stressing about body image at such a young age. Anyways, I’ve seen kids go through a “chubby” phase and then lose the weight once they hit their next growth spurt. My point still is this: you can’t assume anything. Maybe it is the “parents’ fault” as you say, maybe it’s something else, no need to point fingers if you don’t know.

          • sure, there are definitely “genetic” exceptions… but look at her quote. it just doesn’t seem like she has a very healthy or optimistic outlook on how to lose weight……

            and she’s in comedy for goodness sake, how is she that negative about this?!?!

    • wow, body shaming a child. That’s a new low, even for the internet. I actually put some of the blame on the author for posting that picture, knowing some of the vulture-like comments that appear on here.

  3. Maybe not the sunniest of outlooks, but it’s nice to see that she’s doing it slowly and steadily at least. Hopefully she’s able to keep it off.

  4. I just don’t understand celebs who are this big. They have money so they could pay for chefs and trainers who guide them through their diet and they still struggle so hard to lose the weight.
