In a new interview with¬†More magazine for their July/August edition, the Bridesmaids star says that while back in her Twenties she was a smaller size, it didn’t necessarily make her any happier.¬†

‘I’ve been every size in the world. Parts of my twenties, I was in great shape, but I didn’t appreciate it,’ she explains to the publication.

‘If I was a 6 or an 8, I thought, “Why aren’t I a 2 or a 4?” Now I feel like I have two great kids and the dreamiest husband on the planet, and everything else is just a work in progress.’

Melissa, who is mother to Vivian, six, and Georgette, three, says once she was in her older years and had her girls, her priorities changed and she stopped worrying about her size.

‘…at 20 you don’t have any responsibilities, so of course you’re a shallow narcissist. You can’t appreciate anything, you’re so self-absorbed,’ she says.

‘I bought into it — I should be taller, thinner, have better hair. But I think that’s part of being young.

‘Now, especially with kids, you lose any sense of time or energy to worry about all the little stuff. It’s like the chip was taken out.’
