The star Melissa McCarthy recently sat down and talked about her new released hit comedy film “Tammy” and also about her life in general.

Melissa McCarthy is a plus size alright and full of shiny bright positivity and loads of chutzpah. Melissa McCarthy played the character of Tammy in a movie which her husband, Ben Falcone, directed and which she co-wrote and produced. 

"Six years ago, Ben said, 'I had a weird dream. You go on a road trip with your grandma. I'm going to write it,'" she said. "The fact that the screenplay was in her house gave me weird breakdowns."

She acts out the role of a sacked fast food worker who hitchhikes along with her ailing grandma whose character is played by Susan Sarandon. 

Melissa admitted that playing the character felt like giving birth to a brand new baby. Tammy "is a bit like having a third child," she said. 

"You edit in a small dark room, pounding coffee, and it feels like that's where the film will live forever. Then suddenly it goes out to the world!"

Melissa McCarthy talked about the anxiety of creativity she felt on set and how it was like getting jittery after having had one too many cups of coffee. 

Melissa says that when she saw a large billboard of her character Tammy while driving she just started crying like there was no tomorrow. It was a pretty weird moment and the passengers in some of the other cars looked at her like she had gone mad. 

Melissa also spoke of how she preferred acting because she wanted to play other people. And furthermore she only played real people. Not for her were the otherworldly fashion statements and unrealistic models. 

"No! You know what? No. I wanted to be an actress because I wanted to be other people. I play real people. That's fun to me," she said.

Melissa isn’t the kind of woman to go for fake mascara and bright red lipstick that makes you look like a vampire. She says that there is something in her acting that clicks with the audience. 

It is a very human element that strikes a delicate chord with everyone. Some may see members of their family in her acting. Finally, there are good days and there are bad days. 

 

Melissa tries to eat better and drink more water in an effort to reduce her weight but by the end of the day she is happy in her large status. She has two little kids she cares about a lot. 

And with her constant characters that are comic and full of life, there may be a limit to the audience’s patience. Since the public are always in search of something new, they may have gotten a little fed up with Melissa’s spunky routine.
