Melissa McCarthy Wakes Up At 4:30 Every Morning To Watch Some Old TV Classics By Herself

In an interview with the New York Times Magazine, actress Melissa McCarthy says she wakes up every morning at 4:30 to get in a little "me" time.


Everyone needs some time to relax, rewind, and reset. The Mike and Molly actress says her time begins at the crack of dawn and involves classic television, particularly The Incredible Hulk. She tells the magazine:

"I watch Lou Ferrigno freak out, throw a clearly rubber tree. Bill Bixby's high-waisted super chambray-colored pants. They're always so pristine. Even though he's backpacking in the woods, he's so freshly laundered. I had no memory of the softer side of the Hulk. Lou Ferrigno, as the Hulk, picked up a baby bird's nest β€” or did he pick up actual baby birds? I can't remember which. I was like: 'You're not supposed to touch a baby bird and put them back in a tree. They'd die and then their mother would leave them.' Is that true? If you touch a bird does the mother really take off? That's what we were always told, right?"

Okay, so the comedian has a tendency to go off on mental tangents, but she adds:

"I treat myself right."

McCarthy also says she loves reading The Los Angeles Times and The New York Times.

Fans on Twitter agree the actress deserves time for herself.


McCarthy's latest project, Can You Ever Forgive Me?, is getting great reviews.

People love McCarthy in this role.

Can You Forgive Me? opens October 19, 2018.
