Melissa McCarthy: Motherhood Helped Me Accept My Looks

Originally posted 09/29/2011 10:00AM

Melissa McCarthy is no longer just a bridesmaid. She's the bride.

The Mike & Molly Emmy winner and Bridesmaids scene-stealer has some big plans on her plate – from launching her own plus-size fashion line to getting hockey's prized Stanley Cup (for a movie) – during what is already a stellar year for her.

But none of her professional plans can top her favorite pastime, being mom to her two daughters with actor-husband Ben Falcone: Vivian, 4, and Georgette, 1½. McCarthy tells the Hollywood Reporter that being a mother actually helps her feel less insecure about her looks.

"The stupid stuff like what I wear or how I look I can't control, so I just try not to give too much energy to it," she says, calling her body a work in progress after giving birth to Georgette. "At 20, I would have been like: 'Don't they like me? Was it my hair?' At 41, I think the things that define me, I hope, are a lot more than those kinds of petty things."

Why Did Alec Baldwin Skip the Emmys?

Alec Baldwin Explains Why He Skipped the Emmys

It was a birthday party that kept Emmy nominee Alec Baldwin away from TV's biggest night, not the fact that his opening skit got cut, he says.

"I didn't skip the Emmys because of that," the 30 Rock star told reporters Sunday at singing legend Tony Bennett's 85th birthday gala in New York. "I skipped the Emmys because of this – because I wanted to be here."

Baldwin, 53, says he agreed to host the gala a year ago, long before the awards show was scheduled. "The Emmys have been in August for the last several years, but they moved to this date and I'd already committed to this."
