Happy birthday, Melissa McCarthy! One of our favorite funny ladies is turning 45 years-old today, August 26! We hope this future Ghostbuster is having the best day ever!
Melissa McCarthy is turning 45 years-old today, August 26! This comedian and actress kept us in stitches the entire year, and the next year is going to bring even more hilarity. Add that to the fact that Melissa also became a fashion designer — there are great things ahead for this amazing woman!
We could never pick our favorite movie starring Melissa; in the last year, she gave us a few more to add to the pile. In Spy, Melissa played a badass secret agent who got her day in the spotlight for the very first time. Obviously, it was hilarious, especially when she played off straight faces like Jason Statham and Jude Law!
He certainly enjoyed the role; he even mused the idea of bringing Melissa along for Furious 8! That’s pretty much the only thing we can focus on now. Of course, the biggest news surrounding Melissa right now is that she’ll be starring in the highly-anticipated, all woman Ghostbusters reboot next summer. If there was anyone to join that iconic team, it would definitely be her. Seeing her don the uniform and stand next to the cruiser gave us a serious case of nostalgia, and hope for this movie!
Besides acting and comedy, Melissa expanded her empire to include designing clothes for plus-size women. Her line, Seven7, aims to end the dearth of fashionable clothes for plus-size women; she knows that all women deserve to feel beautiful! The line, which is available through size 28, launches this month, and will be available in big-name stores like Nordstrom, Macy’s, HSN, Lane Bryant and Evans!
HollywoodLifers, help us wish Melissa a happy birthday in the comments!
