Melissa McCarthy gained stardom after she was cast for the role of Sookie St. James in the hit series, Gilmore Girls.

McCarthy is loved by many for her daring and bold personality. Another plus factor is jer trait of not caring about what anybody else thinks about her shape. She has shown to the world that she has learned to love her curves.

Recently, she surprised the public by the 75 pounds she has lost over a short period of time. Goodfullness suggested that McCarthy shed off a few pounds for her upcoming film, Can You Forgive Me?

The movie is based on the true story of Lee Israel, a journalist and writer. She was later on discovered to have forged a lot of her literary works, precisely 400 letters from writers and actors who have already passed away.


On December 24, 2014, Israel passed away at the age of 75. When the FBI agents began investigating her, she was able to get rid of all the evidence. As a result, she was never arrested when she was still alive.


In April 2015, it was revealed that her memoir will come to life through the lenses. Supposedly, Julianne Moored was eyed to play the role of Israel, but she turned down the part. McCarthy was announced to be playing the lead role in May 2016.


The production started filming in January 2017 in New York. They finished everything by March 2018. At present, the post-production crew is hard at work.

Can You Forgive Me? is set to hit the big screens on October 19, 2018.

To prepare for the film, McCarthy lost some weight. She underwent a ketogenic diet, which composes of high-protein and low-carb meals. She also revealed that she has a strict exercise program to hasten the process.

“I think I’m more confident than I’ve ever felt in my life. I always thought it was worth the fight. Now I know it is,” she said.
