Let’s be honest it has been Her Majesty Melissa McCarthy’s year. From an Oscar buzzworthy performance in ‘Bridesmaids’, to winning an Emmy for her role in ‘Mike & Molly’, to even scoring one of the most memorable ‘Saturday Night Live’ hosting gigs and planning to launch her own plus-size clothing line.
So it’s only appropriate that the 41-year-old actress channels royalty on the cover of Entertainment Weekly magazine’s annual Comedy Issue. The heavily bejeweled actress throws the deuces sign up in the air, donning a Dame-esque gray wig and a white gown with matching pristine white gloves, as she clutches a dog.
Dubbed the ‘New Queen Of Comedy’ by the magazine, Melissa in her interview talks about being one of comedy’s most sought-after actresses, even though she’s not a typical looking Hollywood star.
“Do I sometimes hope I wake up in the morning and people are like, ‘What’s wrong with her? She looks emaciated’. Of course I would love that. I’m such a clothes whore I would love the opportunity to be a hanger. But I think I’m more confident than I’ve ever felt in my life”, Melissa explains to EW.
