Melissa McCarthy Draws Inspiration from Guy Fieri



We loved Melissa McCarthy's character Megan in Bridesmaids almost as much as we love wedding cake. That confidence. The directness. That red-hot sexuality with the heat coming off her undercarriage. And that look! Who could have possibly inspired McCarthy's portrayal?

Last night McCarthy told Conan O'Brien that the inspiration for Megan came from - it's so obvious when you think about it - Guy Fieri! Check in starting at the 4:16 mark.

Need proof?

Here's Guy, doing his thing with a 15" deep-fried wiener.

And here's McCarthy as Megan, doing her thing, which likely came after a 15" deep fried wiener.

It's uncanny.
