While speaking to Ellen DeGeneres on Thursday’s (Nov. 19) episode of Ellen, Melissa McCarthy revealed that her husband, Ben Falcone, has a serious crush on Harry Styles.
And though the 50-year-old actress has been happily married to her 47-year-old director/actor husband for more than 15 years and the have two daughters, McCarthy said the infatuation with the 26-year-old singer is real.
“He’s fallen pretty hard for Harry Styles, like it’s on a loop,” McCarthy said of Falcone’s obsession. “It’s not a bad choice but sometimes I’m like — I’m just waiting for him to be like, ‘If you could just cut your hair a little shorter,’ like I’m waiting…”
When DeGeneres suggested that McCarthy could deal with the issue by getting “a few tattoos,” since, TBH, who doesn’t have a crush on the dashing heartbreaker?
“As if me cutting my hair would be like I’m a dead ringer for Harry Styles … What am I talking about? I would just look more tragic,” McCarthy said, laughing.
Styles has been in headlines this week after a number of fellow celebs and tons of fans supported his gender-bending Vogue magazine cover — in which he wears a skirt — after a Trump-supporting conservative commentator said his looks in the shoot were part of the “steady feminization of our men.”
McCarthy, who is starring in the upcoming AI film Superintelligence alongside James Corden and Bobby Cannavale, also talked about her and Falcone’s 20 Days of Kindness initiative, in which they’ll donate $20,000 to 20 different charities to put a little love into the world during these difficult times.
