American actress Melissa McCarthy graces the cover of Redbook Magazine July 2014 issue. Together with her husband Ben Falcone the funny actress gets silly in a photo spread signed by Matt Jones .
The 43-year-old opened up to the magazine about her marriage and family, her clothing line and feeling confident in her body.
On why she felt the need to start a line of plus-size clothing : “When I go shopping, most of the time I’m disappointed. Two Oscars ago, I couldn’t find anybody to do a dress for me. I asked five or six designers—very high-level ones who make lots of dresses for people—and they all said no.”
On her daughter’s interest in her job : “She asked me, ‘Are you famous?’ And I said to her, ‘Famous doesn’t mean anything. Just because people know my face doesn’t mean they know us or that it makes us any more interesting or better.’”
On her marriage : “We have a great marriage, and outside forces can’t really change that. Success doesn’t define us, even though we love what we do. The important thing is our family and kids. I see teenagers or people who are 21 and think, I was an idiot at that age. I was running around New York like a crazy woman. Thank God I only had three and a half cents to my name. I was too immature to handle success then.”
