Melissa McCarthy has been trying to eat healthier than she did before. And her new body is reflecting the changes resulting from the actress' improved diet.


The "Life of the Party" star was a guest on the "Jimmy Kimmel Live" show on Wednesday. McCarthy appeared to be looking slimmer in a black tracksuit as she entered the set. A clip of the interview is found below.

While being interviewed, she wore a bedazzled cat vest. The 48-year-old has never been ashamed of her curvy figure. However, the stunning transformation follows her renewed motivation to live a healthier lifestyle.

On the show, McCarthy spoke about her new film and shared the hilarious moment when her star-struck parents met Judge Judy earlier this year.

She responded to haters back in May 2018 when she was already spotting a smaller figure. Despite her size, the actress continues to receive rude remarks about her body.

She took a unique approach and said:

"Weirdly, instead of getting mad at them, I always feel like ‘Oh, I hope you meet someone soon that you can talk to, someone that makes you laugh."


The mother-of-two encouraged young people to remain positive and look up to people who matter to them.

McCarthy began her work as a standup comedian in New York City before shifting to the big screen. When she moved to Los Angeles, she worked with future "Saturday Night Live" stars Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph.

The three were part of a comedy group called "The Groundlings." Soon, McCarthy broke out when she played the character Sookie St. James in the hit series "Gilmore Girls."


She then joined the cast of "Mike & Molly," snagging the main role of the comedy series. The show gained her an Emmy award before it wrapped up in 2016 after six seasons.

McCarthy became a household name with the popular comedy film "Bridesmaids." Thereafter she starred in a number of hit movies including "Identity Thief," "Spy," "The Boss," and "Ghostbusters: Answer the Call."

Her recent flick, "The Happytime Murders," featured the actress as a detective in a puppet murder case. Her last film, "Can You Ever Forgive Me," was released on October 19.
