I have terrible instincts: Melissa McCarthy
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.
