Melissa McCarthy has become the latest celebrity to reveal she has had a horrible work experience in Hollywood.
In a new interview with The Guardian, the actor shared that he once worked with someone who “managed such a volatile, hostile set” that it made him “physically ill.”
“My eyes were swelling, I was absorbing all this madness,” she said.
“There were people crying, visibly upset by this one person.”
McCarthy did not reveal the name of the person who caused the toxic work environment or whether the project was a movie or TV show.
His representative did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
However, the 52-year-old McCarthy also claimed that he could be “manipulated” by this unnamed person because they would fire people he “loves” to keep him “quiet”.
“It was very effective,” said the “Little Mermaid” star.
McCarthy shared that one day he felt the need to take care of himself and said to his colleague, “‘Today ends!'”
“I kept telling them that it was over and over,” he added. “And now I know that I will never be silent again.”
According to McCarthy’s IMDb, the beloved comedy actor has worked on more than 60 projects over nearly three decades, including hits such as “Bridesmaids,” “Mike & Molly,” “Identity Thief,” and “Nine Perfect Strangers.”
One of her most memorable roles, Sookie St. It was the sitcom “Gilmore Girls” in which she played James.
While it is not known whether the show is at the center of McCarthy’s new allegations, he was previously called to the show by another co-star, Scott Patterson.
The actor who plays Luke Danes said he felt like a “meat stick” while filming one of the scenes in August 2022 because it was all about “butt, butt, butt”.
“I had to put up with this throughout the whole scene and many shots,” Patterson said on a podcast earlier.

“It was the most uncomfortable time I’ve ever had on set and I couldn’t wait for that day to end.”
McCarthy, on the other hand, is not only in front of the camera, but also behind the scenes.
She and her husband, Ben Falcone, run a production company called On the Day Productions and told the Guardian they’re doing a “frantic check” to see if a new hire is “good”.
“You know, we were so surprised and grateful that we built our own little worlds, ‘We’ve always been talking about, ‘We need to build a world where everybody has an opinion and everybody is really good.’ McCarthy explained.
“’It’ll be so much better without screaming or crazy egos running around. Why should we risk destroying it?’”
