The "Bridesmaids" breakout star said she went through a goth phase while she attended a girls-only Catholic high school in Illinois. "There was a three-year chunk as a teen where I should have been tranquilized and put in a cage ," she told Entertainment Weekly.
Luckily for her two daughters (sort of), the recent Emmy winner already has a plan to prevent them from indulging in any ill-advised fashion phases. "I will embarrass my kids to their core. I will threaten to show up in a hot pants and a tube top," she vows. She even has a contingency plan if they go to any raucous parties: Her husband will drop her and a "pretty drunk" friend off at the house in question and they will "come into that party and just rip it up."
Considering her two girls are four- and one-year-olds right now, this could mean that McCarthy will be drunkenly crashing high school parties in a tube top when she's in her fifties.
Who knows, though? Ten years from now McCarthy might be able to pull off the hot pants. "Do I sometimes hope I wake up in the morning and people are like, 'What's wrong with her? She looks emaciated,'" she asks. "Of course I would love that, I'm such a clothes whore….. but I think I'm more confident [now] than I've ever felt in my life."
