Melissa McCarthy’s “Bridesmaids” Character Was Inspired By Guy Fieri

“I read the script and had such a weird, fast reaction to Megan. I knew exactly what I wanted her to look like, to sound like, and I got an intense feeling of ‘I like her so much! This will never work out!’ For the audition, I wore no makeup and a bad pant. Once I look like the character, it really locks me in, even if people sometimes say, ‘We need you not to be repulsive.’ … [My husband] and I are obsessed with ‘Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.’ I wanted to wear a short white spiky wig, and they were like, ‘You can’t actually be Guy Fieri.’ I kept wanting to wear crazy white Oakleys on the back of my head, like he does, but somehow they never got in.”

Emmy nominee Melissa McCarthy tells GQ all about her inspirations for the character Megan in “Bridesmaids.” Too bad they didn’t let her go more in the Guy Fieri direction. She looks kind of cute with short spiky hair, as evidenced by this picture. Even though GQ did feel the need to put her in a bikini, any way they could.
