You go, girl! Comedy hero Melissa McCarthy is gracing the cover of ‘Redbook’ for their April issue and she looks amazing. Check out the awesome pics of the slimmed-down star!
Melissa McCarthy, 45, is on top of the world: she’s the star of next month’s sure-to-be-hilarious comedy, The Boss, and then there’s that epic Ghostbusters trailer. Oh, and she’s got her own fashion line, plus she dropped 50 pounds earlier this year. Her new photoshoot for Redbook magazine has her looking beautiful, and we are so inspired!
Melissa McCarthy has every reason to be comfortable in her own skin right now, as she tells Redbook: “There’s an epidemic in our country of girls and women feeling bad about themselves based on what .5% of the human race looks like. It starts very young,” Melissa says. “My message is that as long as everybody’s healthy, enjoy and embrace whatever body type you have.” Yes, we totally agree! She’s also got some wise words on why women should stop judging each other: “With women, there’s this constant weird cultural thing where we’re always supposed to be comparing ourselves with one another. Who wore it best? Whose butt’s better? Instead, how about if everyone wins? How intensely boring would it be if we were all the same?” So true.
Our favorite shot is of Melissa sporting a pink and patterned silky dress that showcases her waist. For a similar look, Melissa’s fashion line, Melissa McCarthy Seven7, can be shopped at hsn.com and is chock-full of pretty blouses, dresses and outerwear for spring. We want everything!
Melissa first flaunted her 50+ lb. weight loss at the 2016 People’s Choice Awards, where she stepped out in sequined black pants and a silky rose-colored blouse. She also took home the well-deserved award for Favorite Comedic Movie Actress!
