Looking great, Melissa! The ‘Bridesmaids’ star showed off her continued weight loss by strutting her stuff on the red carpet at SXSW! Learn what’s behind her inspiring transformation!
They say that black is a slimming color but when Melissa McCarthy, 44, stepped out at South By Southwest on Mar.15, her black and gold ensemble had nothing to do with her FLAWLESS appearance. Continuing her remarkable weight loss, Melissa’s gorgeous appearance outshone her Spy co-stars that night!
Melissa McCarthy Weight Loss: Her Stunning SXSW Appearance
And that’s saying something! Melissa stars in the espionage-comedy with such knockouts like Jason Statham, Jude Law and Rose Byrne. But Melissa’s reported weight loss of over fifty pounds was turning heads becoming the talk of the festival. We’ve known she’s been slimming down for the past couple of months, but she looked absolutely phenomenal at the Austin film extravaganza.
Melissa credited diet and exercise for her weight loss, telling Good Housekeeping that she is an avid tennis player and committed to her Pilates routine. But she’s also said she’s “weirdly healthy” when it comes to food.
Melissa, the mother of two, is also aware on how her weight struggles might affect her daughters – Vivian, age five and the 2 ½ year-old Georgette. “Sometimes I wish I were just magically a size 6 and I never had to give [my weight] a single thought…[but] I don’t beat myself up about it—it wouldn’t help and I don’t want to pass that on to my girls.”
Right on, Melissa! Keep shining like you did at SXSW! Being healthy and being happy is all that’s important! While her success is motivation for those who are in the same struggle, it’s her perspective, attitude and love of her body that’s truly inspiring.
Melissa has a lot to be smiling for. In addition to her weight loss and upcoming movie, she’s slated to strap on a proton pack when she stars in the new Ghostbusters reboot. She’ll be joined by the equally funny Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. We think that after losing fifty pounds, fighting off ghosts will be a piece of cake (or, in this case, broccoli) for Melissa.
