I am happier now: Melissa McCarthy
London: Actress Melissa McCarthy says she is more content now than when she was younger and slimmer.
The actress insists being thinner didn`t make her happier, reported Showbizspy.
"I`ve been every size in the world. Parts of my twenties, I was in great shape, but I didn`t appreciate it. If I was a 6 or an 8, I thought, why ain`t I a 2 or a 4," she said.
McCarthy, who raises Vivian, 6, and 3-year-old Georgette with husband Ben Falcone, admits that she was fixated on her appearance during early adulthood, but changed her priorities after becoming a mom.
"I bought into it? I should be taller, thinner, have better hair. But I think that`s part of being young. Now, especially with kids, you lose any sense of time or energy to worry about all the little stuff."
