Melissa McCarthy is the star of the upcoming movie ‘Tammy,’ out July 2, and also on the June 20 cover of ‘Rolling Stone.’ In the mag, she is described as being ‘fearless, fierce and funny’ and we can see why! She has never abided to any Hollywood standards and does not regret it one bit! See what she has to say about her much-taked-about weight below.

Melissa McCarthy, 44, is back on the big screen on July 2 in another hilarious movie, Tammy, giving Rolling Stone magazine a perfect reason to put the actress on its July 2014 cover. In it, she confesses some unusual (yet still funny!) acting techniques, and why she does not care about weight gain or dieting.

Melissa McCarthy On ‘Rolling Stone’ — She’s Happy With Her Weight

This may come as a shocker to some celebrities who are weight-obsessed and spend their days searching for the perfect diet, but Melissa actually does not mind her extra pounds and is actually happy the way she is now.

Remembering her early acting years, when she was between a size 6 or 8, Melissa said she never felt fully satisfied — she was taking care of herself but she was not appreciating it. This is why she completely dismisses anybody criticizing her weight and her looks — she just doesn’t care!

She Does Not Think It’s That Important

Melissa agrees: she could work out more, she could eat healthier, she could drink less, but after two kids, she admits that some stuff just does not matter to her anymore.

Her philosophy in her own words? “I could eat healthier, I could drink less. I should be learning another language and working out more, but I’m just always saying, ‘Ah, I could get hit by a bus tomorrow.'”

She would much rather enjoy the present moment than to worry about future consequences, and we can’t blame her for that! As long as she remains as radiant and glowing as she is now, nothing can get her down.

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Is Melissa right to feel this way?
