Melissa McCarthy looks amazing, recently revealing her 50 pound weight loss at a P.S. Art event this past weekend.
Melissa McCarthy has obviously reaped the rewards from her low carb diet. The first showed of her new slimmer figure at the Saturday Night Live 40th anniversary event held last Sunday.
The 44-year-old actress/comedian looked absolutely fabulous in her shimmery black gown, cinched waistline with sequins on her long skirt. She had accessorized her new look with a glittery silver hand held clutch and a long necklace. The comedic actress was in great spirits on the red carpet even snapping a photo using a selfie stick.
Melissa took part in a hilariously skit on the SNL show not hesitating to mock herself. Melissa came in dressed as former cast member Chris Farley (who had been a cast member in 1990 to 1995) in a tribute segment.

The comedienne couldn’t resist going all out for her portrayal of Farley, even breaking the table where Amy Poehler, Tina Fey and Jane Curtin (a 1975 original cast member) were performing the ‘Weekend Update’.
Comedian Chris Farley, who would of turned 51 on SNL’s 40th anniversary celebration, tragically died the height of his career, at age 33 from a drug overdose.
Melissa McCarthy lost the weight because of her wanting to set a better example for her children. Although her new look has received enormous positive feedback from her fans, Melissa is aware that her fans love her plus size. Melissa is not looking to become obsessed with dieting, she is only trying to be “a just be healthier her”.
