She’s been an impressive advocate of healthy body image for years and now actress Melissa McCarthy has debuted a much slimmer figure on the red carpet.
We are obsessed with the mum-of-two and she looked positively radiant in a silk beige poncho and tight leggings as she promoted her new film Spy in Berlin.
Despite the stylish oversized top she donned, it was hard not to notice her impressive new figure. According to Celebrity Sport and Fitness, the talented star has lost about 20-kilograms thanks to a low carb diet.
The former Gilmore Girls actress has always been open about her weight and lifestyle, once telling Good Housekeeping: “Sometimes I wish I were just magically a size six."
She added: “I am weirdly healthy, so I don’t beat myself up about it [her weight], it wouldn’t help, and I don’t want to pass it onto my girls.”
Last week Melissa appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres show, where she opened up about facing one of her harshest critics, who told the 44-year-old that she “looked really bad” in the 2014 film Tammy.
“I said [to her critic], ‘I hope you don’t have a daughter’,” she added: “just know every time you write stuff, every young girl in this country reads that, and they just get a little bit chipped away, I just think we tear down women in this country for all these superficial reasons, and women are so great and strong.”
The beloved Hollywood A-lister will be releasing a fashion line later this year called Seven7 which will feature sizes 8-32.
In this month’s More magazine the designer said: “People don’t stop at size 12. I feel like there’s a big thing missing where you can’t dress to your mood above a certain number.”
We could not agree more, and no amount of weight gain or loss will stop us being absolutely in love with the incomparable Melissa McCarthy!
