Celeb Speak: Melissa McCarthy Told Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie to Stop Talking

Melissa McCarthyWe may not have pegged Melissa McCarthy as an Oscar nominee, but it seems she’s already in with the cool kids. On today’s episode of Ellen, the Bridesmaids actress chats with Ellen DeGeneres about meeting Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie at the Golden Globes and telling them to shut up – and how Meryl “Goddess of Acting” Streep was competing with the couple for her attention.

In her bubbliest, most adorable way, McCarthy confesses that she got a little kooky in the presence of the leaders of the A-List. She said, “Finally I got a little weird and said just you have to – you have to stop because it’s a lot visually to take in.” The couple, who McCarthy describes as “bubbly” and “friendly,” laughed even though our lovable comedienne was mortified. Melissa, you know you’re part of that set now too, right?

But it is a lot to take in, expecially when the person trying to arrest your attention from the most biggest celebrity couple is none other than Meryl Streep. McCarthy says someone pulling on her hand and when she turned around they said, “Hi, I’m Meryl.” The actress had a hard time finding her words with Streep too, repeating”Oh my God, you’re Meryl Streep!” And while McCarthy seems a tiny bit embarassed about the whole ordeal, she says the stars that flustered her were just as gracious as ever. Now, these are the sorts of celebrity stories we like to hear – the kinds that make us feel good instead of sending us into pits of despair.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
