Melissa McCarthy was among the winners at last night’s People’s Choice Awards, taking home the trophy for Favorite Comedic Movie Actress.
Everyone noticed how gorgeous the 44-year-old Mike & Molly star looked gorgeous in her all-black ensemble as she walked the red carpet, and many also noticed that she was also showing off a slimmed-down figure.
McCarthy, a mother of two, has been progressively dropping weight over the past few months, with many first taking note of her new look in November when she appeared at a charity event with husband Ben Falcone.
According to Star, the Bridesmaids actress has dropped 45 pounds since going on a low-carb diet and making better decisions regarding her health in general.
“Melissa realized she wasn’t being as healthy as she could be,” a source told the gossip mag. “She wants to set a good example for her kids and she wants to be around to become a grandmother, too.”
Melissa is undoubtedly gorgeous and hilarious no matter what her size, but we’re glad to see her looking happier than ever!
