With two major blockbusters set for release this year, Melissa McCarthy is one of the hottest queens of comedy.
Now, the actress and fashion designer is rewriting the rule book on beauty.
“With women, there’s this constant weird cultural thing where we’re always supposed to be comparing ourselves with one another -- ‘who wore it best? Whose butt is better?’” the "Ghostbusters" star told Redbook magazine. “Instead, how about if everyone wins?”
Redbook’s April issue is the first to drop the term “plus size.”
“When we told her that we were taking the label 'plus' off of clothing in our issue, her response was ‘Oh my God, that's amazing!’” said Meredith Rollins, Redbook’s editor-in-chief. “Let's let readers know that it comes in their size, but why label them?”
McCarthy, 45, who recently launched her own line of clothing, said it’s important to feel confident and stylish.
“When I feel good about my clothes, I look at the world a little differently,” she told Redbook. “A little bit of joy goes a long way.”
The April issue of Redbook is on newsstands now.
