The couple not only acted together in the movie Bridesmaids, but they also produced several movies under their production company, On the Day Productions. Some of these movies include Tammy, The Boss, Happytime Murders, and Life of the Party. They recently starred in the Netflix series God’s Favorite Idiot, which Falcone created, a comedy with an apocalyptic theme.

Melissa McCarthy has secured the fourth spot in Forbes’s highest-paid actresses list for 2023. McCarthy is well-known for her roles in TV shows such as The Gilmore Girls and Mike and Molly.

McCarthy is married to Ben Falcone, and they are known for their quirky antics. In 2019, the couple wore matching Adidas tracksuits and sneakers to the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party, a decision that received mixed reviews. “I’m sure it threw everybody into a tizzy because the idea came to me the day before the Oscars.”

Melissa McCarthy recently made a comment to Entertainment Tonight about her fashion choices. She joked that her style is not any less glamorous despite doubling the amount of diamonds she wears, and that she feels great.

One interesting fact about McCarthy is that she is the cousin of Jenny McCarthy, who is also an actress, model, and TV personality. In 2013, Jenny defended her cousin after a film critic, Rex Reed, wrote a negative review of McCarthy’s movie Identity Thief, calling her a “tractor-sized Melissa McCarthy” and a “gimmick comedian who has devoted her short career to being obese and obnoxious with equal success.”

Jenny criticized Reed’s remarks as being hurtful and unnecessary, and praised her cousin’s talent as an actress. McCarthy herself has faced criticism for her weight in the past, but she remains gracious and does not let it affect her work. She is highly regarded for her acting skills and continues to excel in her career.

In 2016, actress Melissa McCarthy spoke to Refinery29 about losing weight for her role in The Boss, a movie she wrote and directed with her husband Ben Falcone. She acknowledged that her weight fluctuates and that it will probably continue to do so for the rest of her life. However, she believes that there are many more interesting things about women than their bodies and that it’s unfair that women are often reduced to their physical appearance.

McCarthy also criticized the practice of constantly categorizing and listing women, which can be damaging and create unrealistic expectations. She expressed a desire to move beyond stereotypes and show a more diverse range of women in media.

“I want to get rid of constantly categorizing. Lists give somebody a way to shove and tear down women. Those women that are always shown, that we’re all supposed to be like, is like .000009% of human beings. That’s crazy.”

Melissa has expressed in interviews that her weight may vary in the future, but she believes that this should not be the most noteworthy thing about herself or anyone else. She emphasizes that women have many other captivating qualities that are more interesting than their physical appearance. I wholeheartedly agree with her viewpoint.
