Melissa McCarthy: I love my flaws

Melissa McCarthy loves all of her "flaws".

The 'Spy' star embraces every part of herself, insisting she feels most sexiest when she's comfortable and being herself.

Speaking to Jess Cagle for PEOPLE magazine, she said: "I feel sexiest when I feel comfortable, when I feel most myself, when I'm not trying to be anything other than who I am.

"[I love] all of it: my flaws, my shortcomings, my body parts that you're like, 'Well, couldn't that be better?' I think, especially after having kids, I go, 'Well, the alternative is pretty bad. I'll take me as I am.'"

Meanwhile, the 45-year-old comedian and actress previously revealed she doesn't think perfect people exist.

She explained: "I know I am not the 'norm.' It never occurs to me in terms of being a role model, though, because I don't know any perfect women. If I, off the top of my head, name 20 of the most amazing women in my life, it's all shapes, sizes, ages, colours, jobs.

"What people pass off as 'normal,' I just have to keep in my head that it's b******t. It's all fictitious, made-up stuff. I know some of those women in those magazines who get called perfect or whose butt is supposedly better, and often they don't even look like that in person. And they would die - they don't want you to compare who wore it better. They would be more horrified than anybody else that you're pitting them against each other and judging. You don't do that with guys."
