Melissa McCarthy may be a poster child for plus-sized women, but even the Oscar nominated actress sometimes wishes she could fit into smaller sizes.

In a new interview with Good Housekeeping, the Bridesmaids star opens up about her weight struggles and how she tries not to let her shape become an issue when it comes to her career and self-esteem, and has the details.

"Sometimes I wish I were just magically a size 6 and I never had to give my weight a single thought," admits McCarthy, who plays tennis and does Pilates to stay in shape. "But I am weirdly healthy, so I don’t beat myself up about it – it wouldn’t help, and I don’t want to pass that on to my girls."

Considering her healthy lifestyle, the actress, who is in the process of designing a plus-sized clothing line, doesn’t understand why she isn’t a lot skinnier.

"I don’t really know why I’m not thinner than I am. I don’t really drink soda; I don’t have a sweet tooth, and we eat healthfully at home."

However, no matter how big or small her friends are, the actress points out that most people she knows are never happy with themselves.

"Pretty much everyone I know, no matter what size, is trying some system. Even when someone gets to looking like she should be so proud of herself, instead she’s like, 'I could be another three pounds less; I could be a little taller and have bigger lips.' Where does it end?"

Melissa’s moral to the story?

"You just have to say, It’s pretty damn good. I am right here at the moment and I’m OK with it. I’ve got other things to think about."
