After she took the stage to launch Ivory Soap’s new Soap Dish Facebook community for moms in New York City on Monday night — and was presented with a giant bar of Ivory carved in her likeness — Melissa McCarthy took a few moments to chat with Metro about the possibility of a sequel to Bridesmaids, the summer blockbuster that made her a household name.
“[It’s a] yes for me, [but I] don’t know that it’s happening,” she told us.
“I’ll basically show up anywhere with those women — even if it’s like a long bus trip, I’ll go with them — but no talk of it yet. I think everyone’s so busy. But I wouldn’t mind it down the road just because I love that group.”
McCarthy is indeed keeping very busy.
Not only did she win an Emmy this year for her sitcom Mike & Molly, but she’s also developing her own clothing line for plus-sized women.
“It’s so preliminary right now. I know I want a jumpsuit in it. I’m not afraid of it. I love a jumpsuit.”
And when we asked if she’s creating the line to be a role model for girls who aren’t a size zero, the awesome actress just laughs.
“No, I think I’m just selfishly making it for myself!”
She elaborates: “I want separates, for the love of God, because everything’s like a bad prom dress. You can find a million bad sleeveless dresses in satin. I’m like, ‘Where’s a good blouse and great trouser?’”
