As part of ELLE's first Women in Comedy edition, the “Ghostbusters” gals chat about their unique career paths. Ms. McCarthy notes that she’s had to fight for her characters- “I get so psychotically attached to all of my characters, and I fight for them in probably the most annoying way. I hear myself saying to Ben or Paul [Feig, Ghostbusters’ director], ‘She wouldn’t phrase it that way.’ I know it’s such an actory thing, but I feel it to my core: I have to represent the woman I’m getting to be. Even if she’s fictitious, she’s always real to me: three-dimensional, flawed, loving, screwed-up, as real women are.”
It’s always fun to see celebrities face off in silly competitions, and last night (April 4) Melissa McCarthy flaunted her performing skills during “The Tonight Show’s” hilarious segment “Lip Sync Battle.”
The “Bridesmaids” babe was in the house to plug her new movie “The Boss,” but things got pretty heated when she lip synced “X Gon’ Give It To Ya,” complete with precisely-coordinated dance moves.
