Celebrity Quote Of The Week: Melissa McCarthy

January 28, 2012

This week’s Celebrity Quote of the Week goes to funny lady Melissa McCarthy. I can’t tell you how much I love this woman, she makes me laugh all.the.time. I mean really, who doesn’t love her? So what did the “Bridesmaids” star have to say this week that has everyone talking?

Melissa McCarthy

On Tuesday, McCarthy received an Oscar nomination for her role as Megan in the hilarious comedy, “Bridesmaids”. If you haven’t seen this movie yet, what is wrong with you?? Heh heh. It’s out on DVD, you must buy it NOW. Err, okay, check it out on Netflix. You will not be disappointed. You will understand why McCarthy is so deserving of the Oscar nomination. She was totally snubbed at the Golden Globes, not receiving a nod for her hilarious efforts in the film, but co-star Kristen Wiig was nominated in the Best Actress in a Comedy category. Wiig was beat out by Michelle Williams in “My Week With Marilyn”.

Anyhoo, McCarthy was a guest on Ellen DeGeneres’ birthday celebration show on Thursday (Jimmy Kimmel served as co-host), and recalled to Ellen and Jimmy about her experience while attending her very first Golden Globes. She certainly was starstruck by the whole event, telling her husband Ben Falcone throughout the night how she couldn’t believe that they were there. Ellen asked who she talked to that night and check out what she had to say about meeting Brangelina…

“So I’m already in some weird altered state talking to Brad and Angelina. They’re so nice and chatty and really bubbly. Finally, I got a little weird and I was like you have to stop for a minute because it’s a lot visually to take in.”

Ellen said, “You said that to them?”, to which Melissa replied:

“I did. I said that to them. They just kind of laughed. I said, no really. It is a lot visually to take in. She’s like weirdly glowing. She’s so beautiful. He’s kind of cute too. And then I was like okay. I’m sorry. I needed to like regroup because they’re kind of a lot. They were just like here (puts her hands in front of her face).”

Isn’t she hilarious? For someone who’s been dubbed a Hollywood darling since “Bridesmaids” was released, she’s a fan just like the rest of us, and gets starstruck too. Good luck at the Oscars, Melissa!!
