Updated on:

Melissa McCarthy, who got fans talking following remarkable weight loss, was brought up in Illinois. While she wasn’t too chubby as a child, she began to gain weight as she made poor food choices later in life.

In an interview with The Rolling Stones, Melissa McCarthy said she got worried about weight a bit early. She figured she was battling weight all through high school, but when she looks back at pictures of herself as a cheerleader, running sprints, raising weights, running gymnastics, playing tennis, and although she wasn’t reed-thin like other people … she was six in size all the time. So, she often wonders what on earth was she freaking about?

The actress said, “I’ve been every size in the world, parts of my twenties, I was in great shape, but I didn’t appreciate it. If I was a 6 or an 8, I thought, ‘Why aren’t I a 2 or a 4?’”

When Melissa relocated to L.A., she began intaking undesirable food and quit exercising and gained 25 pounds.

The universe fell to a standstill as Melissa McCarthy arrived in her latest appearance following weight loss. The Gilmore Girls actress lost a staggering 70 pounds! And she was sparkling with confidence. Who could stop this twice Oscar nominee star?

The actress told TMZ, “Honestly, I couldn’t have done it if I’d even wanted to! *laughs* No, I didn’t need to exercise every day. I’ve always liked to jog every few days, but I didn’t change my routine. The only thing I did was took these pills. They’re a natural weight loss supplement called AtraFen Weight Loss Aid. They’re totally safe.”

The Actress Reckons Men Don’t Get the Same Treatment About Weight

Melissa became InStyle Magazine‘s cover star in February 2019 and spoke about her success in Hollywood as well as her weight.

She recalled a moment when someone from a major company was interviewing her, who couldn’t stop poking about her physique.

He kept asking, ‘Are you shocked that you actually work in this business at your tremendous size?’ He was like, ‘Oh, your tremendous size, you can actually work?’ I just remember all the blood drained out of me. I thought, ‘With my tremendous size, I could tackle you so quickly.’ There were two cameras on him, and one was on me, and he went back to that question three or four times, and I just kept talking about the script or how fun Paul Feig was. He was looking around like, ‘She’s crazy.’ When we left, their producer was horrified and said, ‘We’ll never play what he said. I’m so sorry.’

Melissa went on to find out that it’s likely to happen to her regularly, “to the point where it’s fascinating because they don’t do it to men,” she assured the publication. “Not to be a jerk or single him out, but when John Goodman was heavier, did anybody ever talk about his girth?”
