Melissa McCarthy Talks 'Intensely Uncomfortable' Undergarments

Melissa McCarthy wore a dress she designed herself to the Emmys, and Giuliana Rancic stopped her on the red carpet to ask if she actually owns anything she was wearing.

"I own all my uncomfortable undergarments," she said. "And they're intensely uncomfortable. Those I own because no one wants those back. After the Emmys they're held out in the sun."

Melissa is not the only actress to admit to wearing restrictive underwear to awards shows. Just after performing her opening number Jane Lynch made a comment about her "triple Spanx."

At last year's SAG awards Julia Louis-Dreyfus told Giuliana that the secret to her red carpet body is Spanx.

"You gotta have Spanx," she said. "Keep the spanx on and it will all work out!"
