Melissa McCarthy's children have yet to see her filthy, hilarious, awesome performance in Bridesmaids. At the L.A. premiere of her new film Identity Thief, the actress told reporters that her daughters Vivian, 5, and Georgette, almost 3, are not allowed to watch her outrageous role in the movie, in which she plays the raunchy future sister-in-law to Maya Rudolph's character.
"I don't know that my kids for sure know what I do," the actress, 42, told reporters. "There are one of these posters on the way to school," she explained, pointing to an Identity Thief poster, "and they kind of go, 'Hi, mama.'"
Indeed, it may be awhile before young girls can see Identity Thief. The R-rated comedy, in theaters Feb. 8, includes some violence inflicted by their mommy!
McCarthy admitted to reporters that she actually punched costar Jason Bateman in the face and drew some blood. "He threw me down on the ground on a highway and laughed at me," she said, "So then I thought I can take him."
