Ben Falcone thinks he’s a “fortunate fella” to be married to Melissa McCarthy and dismisses criticism about her size

The talented actor Melissa McCarthy is much more interesting than she is overweight.

McCarthy is a comic genius with a tonne of talent who has produced, written, and starred in several Hollywood blockbusters.

She and her passionate actor husband Ben Falcone, with whom she has been married since 2005, are a tremendously gifted couple and one of Hollywood’s cutest and funniest couples.

Falcone, 49, frequently exclaims his love and respect for McCarthy and how beautiful she is.

The two were shown in a picture that Falcone shared on Instagram in 2021 along with the statement, “This was taken during a friend’s wedding, maybe 14 years ago. We enjoyed ourselves. The wedding was enjoyable, but Melissa also adds to the enjoyment by simply being herself. I’m a lucky dude to be married to someone who is so wise, kind, gorgeous, and hilarious. Wishing you a happy birthday, Mooch.

In addition to producing films like Tammy (2014), The Boss (2016), Happytime Murders (2018), and Life of the Party through their production business On the Day Productions, the couple both played characters in Bridesmaids (2011). (2018). The couple most recently appeared in Falcone’s post-apocalyptic comedy God’s Favorite Idiot (2022), a Netflix series.


McCarthy, who ranked fourth on Forbes’ list of the highest-paid actresses in 2023, is well-known for her work on the TV series Mike and Molly and The Gilmore Girls (2000–2007). (2010-2016). She has appeared in films such as The Heat (2013), The Spy (2015), Ghostbusters (2016), and Can You Ever Forgive Me?, for which she was nominated for an Oscar and in which she played a struggling writer who forges letters from deceased authors. McCarthy will also be demonstrating her singing talents in Disney’s live-action The Little Mermaid in 2023 as Ursula, the evil sea witch.

McCarthy, who is now 52, has received numerous honours. In 2016, Time named her one of the 100 most influential people in the world, and in 2020, The New York Times ranked her as the 22nd greatest actor of the twenty-first century.

The unconventional nature of McCarthy and Falcone’s relationship in Hollywood makes their humour charming. The duo showed up to the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party in 2019 sporting matching Adidas tracksuits and trainers. The decision McCarthy said received mixed reviews “I’m sure it threw everybody into a tizzy because the idea came to me the day before the Oscars.”

She joked about her wardrobe choices to Entertainment Tonight, saying, “I’ve doubled my diamonds-I feel great, so it’s not (less glamorous) to me guys.”

McCarthy is the cousin of Jenny McCarthy, an actress, model, and TV personality, which is something that people might not be aware of. Jenny defended McCarthy in 2013 after movie critic Rex Reed attacked her cousin in a review of Identity Thief, calling her a “gimmick comedian who has devoted her short career to being obese and rude with equal success” and a “tractor-sized Melissa McCarthy.”

Jenny commented, “That’s annoying in and of itself. It’s wrong and hurtful for anyone to attack in that way, and it serves no one. “She’s extremely, very talented, and people realise that, so…,” she continued. He may enter hell.

McCarthy cheerfully brushes off criticism of her fluctuating weight while maintaining a good rating on the scale for her acting abilities.

McCarthy discussed losing weight for her role in The Boss, a movie she co-wrote with Falcone, who also directs, in an interview with Refinery29 in 2016. “I will return, but I have. I’ll likely spend the rest of my life going up and down. The problem is that if that’s the only intriguing thing about me, I should quit this and go start a lavender farm in Minnesota.

There needs to be more, she continued. Women have a lot more fascinating characteristics than just their butt, this, or that. That cannot always be the opening query or even a question at all. How do you maintain your butt looking so fantastic, they might ask some of the guys I work with?

She also stated, “I want to stop continually categorising, which brings me to stereotypes. Lists provide a means for shoving and demeaning women. The women who are always portrayed as the ideal that we should all aspire to are only.000009% of people. That is absurd.

McCarthy founded Melissa McCarthy Seven7 to share her stunning looks with others after struggling with fashion. She apparently stopped producing her range, which came in sizes four to 28, but her aggressive looks can still be bought on websites that sell used goods online.

Despite criticism, Falcone continues to make heart-melting remarks about McCarthy, the mother of their two children. He said, “I told her, ‘I love you every day,'” in the description of one of his Instagram pictures. But today, I really do love you,” and it was true.
