MELISSA McCarthy insists she has a “great marriage” to husband Ben Falcone.
The actress opened up in a new interview with Redbook magazine.
“We have a great marriage, and outside forces can’t really change that,” she said. “Success doesn’t define us, even though we love what we do.
“The important thing is our family and kids. I see teenagers or people who are 21 and think, I was an idiot at that age. I was running around New York like a crazy woman. Thank God I only had three and a half cents to my name. I was too immature to handle success then.”
Melissa says her oldest daughter has started to realize she has a famous mommy.
“She asked me, ‘Are you famous?’” she recalled. “And I said to her, ‘Famous doesn’t mean anything. Just because people know my face doesn’t mean they know us or that it makes us any more interesting or better.’”
