But McCarthy showed up Monday night at the Emmy Awards with a new accessory — the actress appeared to be crying as she walked down the red carpet. McCarthy teared up when she saw Orange Is the New Black's Michael Harney and she gave the actor a big hug.
McCarthy admitted earlier this year that when she was younger, she used to cry a lot more. She told People, "In my 20s I used to cry about why I wasn't thinner or prettier, but I want to add that I also used to cry about things like: 'I wish my hair would grow faster. I wish I had different shoes.' I was an idiot. It's a decade of tears."
But McCarthy admitted that she tries to keep a positive attitude now and comedy helps a lot with that.
"I'll do almost anything for a laugh," McCarthy says of her bold characters. "I'm completely delighted by people who think, 'I don't care what anybody else thinks, I look great in this, and I rock it and I love it.' It's such a delightful sort of confidence."
