    It’s no secret that we're a little obsessed with Melissa McCarthy. She’s brilliant, talented, and makes us laugh until we spit. Not to mention she has no time for anyone’s criticism of her appearance or the world's obsession with women's size. Hear, hear!

    Long before the world fell in love with her in Bridesmaids  — and before that, in Gilmore Girls — McCarthy was making her way in Hollywood, bringing her particularly delightful brand of funny to small but memorable roles. She's gone from popping up for mere minutes in 1999's Go to starring in her own potential summer blockbuster, Spy

    As we prepare to watch McCarthy add another triumph to her résumé, we take a spin through her filmography to see just how she became a marquee star.
