Known for her hilarious Bridesmaids quotes and her starring role on Mike & Molly, actress Melissa McCarthy is living proof that you don't have to be plastered across gossip sites in bikini photos to be laugh-out-loud funny.
Plus-size women can feel like stars, too.
After co-designing her Emmys dress with dressmaker Daniella Pearl, the 41-year-old - who combed through "9 million dresses with taffeta or shiny bows" - decided to create a clothing line for women with similar body types.
"Trying to find stuff that's still fashion-forward in my size is damn near impossible," she tells The Hollywood Reporter. "It's either for like a 98-year-old woman or a 14-year-old hooker, and there is nothing in the middle."
It wasn't until McCarthy became a mom to daughters Vivian, 4, and Georgette, 1, that she stopped feeling insecure about her physical appearance.
