Melissa McCarthy Would Do A ‘Bridesmaids’ Sequel ‘This Afternoon’ If She Could Universal Pictures

It’s hard to believe that “Bridesmaids” came out all the way back in 2011, more than a decade ago. The unconventional romantic comedy, written by Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo, became an immediate classic upon its release because of course it did. Between the incredible cast — Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Rose Byrne, Maya Rudolph, and so many other incredible women — and the hilarious script, it was bound to be a success. Fans have been clamoring for a follow-up ever since, and if Melissa McCarthy had her way, she’d film a “Bridesmaids” sequel without hesitation.

Talking to People for the magazine’s Most Beautiful issue, McCarthy described filming the movie as “magical” and said she would love to do it again if she could.

“I would do a Bridesmaids sequel this afternoon, right now. That group of women was the most magical thing ever. Almost all of us were really good friends already. I think it was such a magical time,” she explained.

She added that she wouldn’t care how long it took for the “Bridesmaids” sequel to get made – she’d still be on board. McCarthy said that even if the cast was “all in our nineties and Kristen and Annie are like, ‘Should we team back up?’ I’d be like, ‘Yes. Yeah, we should.’” To be honest, we’d have to agree.

Asked what her favorite memories of filming the movie were, McCarthy struggled to nail down just one. That’s because the whole thing was such an incredible experience that it was all memorable.

“Oh my God. Just being around that many funny people where truly it was like people dropping to the ground because we couldn’t get air in,” she shared. “From a distance, it must have looked like we all had food poisoning because there was just times where we’d be like… You can’t be around that group of humans and not just be beside yourself.”

You have to feel totally comfortable with people in order to be able to have explosive diarrhea in the sink of a fancy bridal shop, after all! Poor Megan!
