Melissa McCarthy Height

I think if anyone tells you the odds are slim, just keep walking. Just do whatever the hell you want to do, because they don't know what they're talking about. When you love something, and you work really really hard at it, you can do it.

Famous actress Melissa McCarthy has been one of the highest-paid actresses in the world. She first gained recognition for her role as Sookie St. James on the television series “Gilmore Girls”, she played Dena on the ABC sitcom “Samantha Who?”, before starring as Molly Flynn on the CBS sitcom “Mike & Molly”.

About Melissa McCarthy's Real Height

Melissa McCarthy looks shorter than she really is. Not to say that she is tall but she is someone who has struggled with her weight on and off her entire life.

Extra weight on human bodies makes most people look short. Such is the case with Melissa as well, she isn't known for looking tall on the screen.

Anyway, Melissa once mentioned her height as 5 feet 2 inches. From what we have seen of her, we think she is correct about her height -- unlike many other celebrities, who are several inches off their real height.

The Rock is one such example, he is 6 feet 3 inches in real life but is thought to be 6'5" for some reason [probably a relic from his pro-wrestling days].

The real height of Melissa McCarthy is

5 feet 2 in (157.5 cm)

Here are some more Melissa McCarthy quotes.

On her faith.

I believe it matters how you treat people. I believe in Heaven. I don't believe that this is it, and then we're done. I have a lovely relationship with God, although when I've lost someone or I've seen a sick child, I've had conversations with Him in which I've had to ask, 'How can that be right?'

Comparing her life to that of other people.

I felt really bad for someone who is swimming in so much hate. I just thought that's someone who's in a really bad spot, and I am in such a happy spot. I laugh my head off every day with my husband and my kids who are mooning me and singing me songs.

Not caring about...

There’s greatness in not caring what people think.

On complainers.

I don't associate with people who blame the world for their problems. You are your problem. You are also your solution.

On self-improvement.

I could eat healthier, I could drink less. I should be learning another language and working out more, but I'm just always saying, 'Ah, I could get hit by a bus tomorrow.'

On women who don't give a...

I'm a bit obsessed with women that are so incredibly solid in their shoes that they don't care what other people think of them. I just think there's something so interesting about that kind of confidence.

Perfect women vs. beautiful women.

Hollywood wants to make women so perfect. Perfect hair. Perfect job. Perfect manners... I know some of the most beautiful women, and they are so weird. That's what makes them funny and captivating.

On female beauty standards.

I don't know any neighborhoods where everyone's walking around in seven-inch heels and perfect makeup.

On her belief.

When I believe in something, I'm like a dog with a bone.

On standing for your belief.

When someone really believes in what they're saying, but it's crazy, it's like my favorite thing on earth.

Being obsessed about your look.

Even when someone gets to looking like she should be so proud of herself, instead she's like, 'I could be another three pounds less; I could be a little taller and have bigger lips.'

Her dislike of mean things.

I don't like to do anything that's mean-spirited just because I don't find it funny. I'd rather be the jackass than makes fun of somebody else. It just seems too cheap and easy.

In her 20s.

In my 20s I used to cry about why I wasn’t thinner or prettier, but I want to add that I also used to cry about things like: ‘I wish my hair would grow faster. I wish I had different shoes …

Being goth.

As a teenager, I went all Goth, but I wasn't mopey enough. I would pretend to be, but I'd end up making people laugh.

On her weight.

I've been every size in the world. Parts of my 20s, I was in great shape, but I didn't appreciate it. If I was a 6 or an 8, I thought, "Why aren't I a 2 or a 4?" Now I feel like I have two great kids and the dreamiest husband on the planet, and everything else is just a work in progress.

On her love of drag...

I wanted to be a drag queen so badly. I'll bet I still own more wigs than any drag queen - I love me a wig.

A charming person.

Nothing's more charming than someone who doesn't take herself too seriously.

On the best parts of a woman's body.

One of the best parts of a woman's body is that curve, and I go a little bit higher on all of my things to show off the best part of the hourglass.
