Disney Star Says She’s “Physically Ill” After Report

Actress Melissa McCarthy has gained widespread recognition for her comedic performances, which never fail to bring joy and laughter to countless millions.

Throughout her career, McCarthy has been involved in many prestigious ventures. 

She rose to prominence with her standout performance in the comedic film “Bridesmaids” in 2011, and she charmed audiences as the lead character in the CBS comedy series “Mike & Molly.”

This Friday, moviegoers can witness McCarthy’s talent again as she brings the villainous character Ursula to life in the highly anticipated live-action adaptation of “The Little Mermaid.”

Nevertheless, there was a time when McCarthy found herself in an entirely different scenario on a film set.

During a recent interview with The Guardian, she openly discussed a profoundly impactful experience she had in Hollywood.

Recalling that incident, McCarthy shared, “I once worked with an individual who fostered an extremely unpredictable and antagonistic environment on set, to the point where it took a toll on my physical well-being.”

“I could feel my eyes welling up as I absorbed all the absurdity,” she continued.

“There were individuals around me, their tears flowing, visibly disturbed by this one person’s actions,” she expressed.

McCarthy asserted that this unnamed individual could terminate people she cared about, which silenced her. However, that tactic eventually reached its breaking point.

Reflecting on the moment, she recalled, “I reached a turning point and declared, ‘Today, it ends!’ I repeated it to them, firmly determined that the silence would cease. And now, I vow never to remain silent again.”

The actress did not disclose the location where this mistreatment occurred.

McCarthy pursues acting and manages a production company called On the Day alongside her husband, Ben Falcone. 

In her commitment to fostering a positive work environment, McCarthy emphasized the importance of passing a “crazy check,” as she shared with The Guardian. 

McCarthy fans will be treated to her acting once again as she brings the live-action villain Ursula to life in the remake of “The Little Mermaid.”
