They’re all hilarious comediennes in their own right, and Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones are all featured on the July 2016 cover of ELLE magazine.

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.”
