Melissa McCarthy is dubbed the ‘New Queen of Comedy’ for EW’s comedy issue, out tomorrow. The Bridesmaids and Mike & Molly star is Queen Elizabeth, plus Corgi, on the cover and makes an amazing Divine on the inside. If they ever remake Pink Flamingos, not that they should, she would be a shoe-in for Babs Johnson.
In the mag, McCarthy talks about her teen goth phase, new found fame and her weight.
“Do I sometimes hope I wake up in the morning and people are like, ‘What’s wrong with her? She looks emaciated,’ ” she says. “Of course I would love that. I’m such a clothes whore I would love the opportunity to be a hanger. But I think I’m more confident than I’ve ever felt in my life.”
As well she should!!
