The actress was honored in Hollywood on Tuesday
Emmy-winner Melissa McCarthy was pretty in purple as she was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Tuesday.
The actress, who stars in the new film Spy, wore a floral dress that showed off her slimmer waist at the ceremony in front of the TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX.
She was joined by her husband, Ben Falcone, along with Ellen DeGeneres and director Paul Feig, who directed her in Bridesmaids, The Heat and Spy.
“It was a little overwhelming,” the Mike and Molly star told CBS Los Angeles of the ceremony, where she was cheered by fans.

“I thought, ‘Just try to stay in it so you remember it, don’t get so overwhelmed,’ because I’m like, I don’t want to forget today, I don’t want to forget my mom, my kids, anybody that I get to see here watch this happen. I want to remember every second of it,” she added.
