Melissa McCarthy Covers Good Housekeeping December 2012

A few of the highlights from Miss McCarthy's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Good Housekeeping!
On family traditions over the holidays:
"On Christmas Eve, we have everyone over and make a potful of meatballs for submarine sandwiches."
On her spirituality:
"I believe that it matters how you treat people. I believe in heaven. I don't believe that this is it, and we're done."
On her early dues-paying days:
"I did lots of falling down on my face, and I just kept getting back up. It's not the biggest deal. Eventually you realize you'll get up, and you don't mind the falling as much."
On her tenacious nature:
"When I believe in something, I'm like a dog with a bone. As long as you're not hurting anyone, I don't know that you'll ever regret [pushing ahead]. You'll be happier and more true to who you really are."
