With two young kids at home and a career that’s skyrocketing, actress Melissa McCarthy knows well the challenge of striking the right balance between work and family life. Though the Bridesmaids star admits it’s not always easy, she says she wouldn’t have it any other way.
“It’s looney!” Melissa told SheKnows at this weekend’s Palm Springs Film Festival Awards Gala. “But it’s the same as any working mom or parent. It’s so fun that it’s worth it.”
With awards season here, the funny mom, who has daughters Vivian, 4, and Georgette, 1, with her husband Ben Falcone, also dished on how she gets red carpet-ready:
“I try to get out of the house without macaroni and cheese [on me]. I wait till the last second to get dressed because I have to avoid the little kid hands down me.”
