I have ter­ri­ble in­stincts: Melissa McCarthy

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Amer­i­can ac­tor Melissa McCarthy (above) is known for her flair of com­edy as well as love for ac­tion stunts. The ac­tor, in a jok­ing way, said that she has ter­ri­ble in­stincts, adding that she al­ways tries to hurt her­self.

McCarthy was seen do­ing ac­tion scenes in Spy (2015), and will soon walk down the same road with her forth­com­ing film Ghost­busters. Paul Feig is adding his own take to the story of the fa­mous 1984 Amer­i­can su­per­nat­u­ral hor­ror com­edy with epony­mous name. The film will hit the screens in In­dia in July.

Pro­fess­ing her love for stunts, McCarthy said,"I like to try to hurt my­self. And some­thing's wrong with me. I'm al­ways like 'I should do that', 'I should take that thirty-three store fall'. I have ter­ri­ble in­stincts." Asked if she un­der­went some spe­cial train­ing for the stunts in her up­com­ing movie, she said, "Oh, no. You can't, you can't go into some­thing be­cause it's dan­ger­ous, even when we're do­ing it, as fun as it is, you re­ally have to train for it.

"You re­ally have to know be­cause there are cer­tain scenes where there are thirty to thirty-five peo­ple all fly­ing and mov­ing and run­ning at you, and you re­ally have to pay at­ten­tion be­cause if one thing goes off, peo­ple can re­ally get hurt. She adds,"So there's a level of stakes there. But when you pull it off and then you watch it later, that's why for the next one you go, 'Yeah, I should do that'."

Feig, known for films like Brides­maids and Spy, is bring­ing his touch to su­per­nat­u­ral com­edy by work­ing with ac­tors like McCarthy, Kris­ten Wiig, Kate McKin­non, Les­lie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth.

The film is pro­duced by Ivan Reit­man and Amy Pas­cal.
