Melissa McCarthy is a plus-sized actress with a healthy body image. McCarthy says she does ponder why she isn't a smaller size, but those thoughts don't tend to linger because she leads a healthy lifestyle.
"Sometimes I wish I were magically a size six and I never had to give [my weight] a single thought. But I am weirdly healthy, so I don't beat myself up about it -- it wouldn't help, and I don't want to pass that on to my girls," McCarthy said. "I don't really know why I'm not thinner than I am. I don't really drink soda; I don't have a sweet tooth, and we eat healthfully at home."
McCarthy added she doesn't know any woman who is totally happy with her weight, but has found a positive outlook by remembering to concentrate on other aspects of her life.
