Melissa McCarthy is making the press rounds right now to promote her new movie “Tammy” and one of her latest stops was “The Daily Show” on Thursday (June 26). There, she deadpans to host Jon Stewart that she and her husband Ben Falcone haven’t spoken “in months” — a joke, since Falcone wrote and directed the movie.
But she does say that she’s worked with a couple less-than-stellar directors, including one time on a commercial where she never even saw the man. “He stayed way up in a glass booth somewhere and he just yelled at us through a speaker all day, it was the weirdest thing,” says McCarthy.
She also regales Stewart with a story about a crazy woman at a commercial audition that we cannot possibly do justice in print, so just watch the video. It’s funny and also a little terrifying.
“Tammy” opens nationwide Wednesday, July 2.
