VIDEO: Sandra Bullock And Melissa McCarthy Talk About Their Comedy THE HEAT
Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy team up as an unlikely duo of cops in The Heat. This is your classic buddy comedy with one good cop and one bad cop, except in this case you’ve got an Oscar Winner (Bullock) playing the straight-laced officer and an Oscar Nominee (McCarthy) playing the wild and potty-mouthed one.
The Heat is directed by Paul Fieg –the same guy who directed Bridesmaids. It’s interesting to point out that just like Bridesmaids, this is the only comedy this summer that features women in the lead roles. The Heat certainly delivers with a lot of laugh out loud moments and the chemistry between the two women is obvious from the first scene they share.
20th Century Fox invited me to fly to New York City to interview both Sandra and Melissa and don’t ask me how, but we managed to talk about menopause, male strippers, meteorology, rashes and of course, Bridesmaids.
Watch below to see the hilarity unfold. The Heat hits theaters on June 28, 2013.
