Big girls need love too…even if it’s not from a straight man.
Melissa McCarthy Says She Dated Lots Of Gay Men
Melissa McCarthy is known for being the funny hefty chick…but not necessarily someone men are chasing down the block. She recently revealed that early in her dating life, many of her suitors were not into women at all. What part of the game is this? Via ETonline:
Mike & Molly star Melissa McCarthy, 43, recently chatted with The Advocate, and dished that she’s dated plenty of gay men in her past!
“Just one? There were so many,” she surprisingly revealed when the magazine asked her if she’s ever dated a gay man. “In my early 20s I was like the last stop before a guy said, ‘Yep, it’s official: I’m gay.’ I’d be like, ‘Really?!’ I’d think, But he’s so funny, so charming, and such a good dresser. I never saw it coming.”
Thankfully, the funny lady was able to find a straight man who was into her enough to wife her up and give her some babies.
McCarthy has been married to fellow actor Ben Falcone since 2005. The couple has two daughters together, Vivian, 7, and Georgette, 4.
“All of my friends were gay,” she continued about her upbringing. “In high school we started going to downtown Chicago clubs like Berlin, one of the best gay bars ever. … It was just my world. I was a little odd, and I found them to be the most accepting group.”
Well you typically date who you hang around, so it only makes sense that she held hands in the park with a couple of men who weren’t quite on playing for her team…right?
