Melissa McCarthy has no problem knocking down body stereotypes, especially in Hollywood! The plus size actress opened up to Redbook Magazine in their April issue, explaining how she hopes to make a difference in women’s lives by helping them see themselves & other women through a different lens.  Her daughters, Georgette & Vivian, are no exception. McCarthy is doing her best to raise the young women in an environment where they don’t judge themselves based on how they look.  “Give me your best punch in the face, and I’ll take that punch, rather than have my kid feel bad about herself.” Her message to her daughters is basically “as long as everybody’s healthy, enjoy and embrace whatever body type you have.”
