Role call: Burn-out writer Lee Israel stumbles into a new stream of income: forgery

“I love someone who’s unapologetic about who they are and how they behave. Even if it’s prickly, even if it’s uncomfortable,” Melissa McCarthy says of Lee Israel, the clever, curmudgeonly author-turned-forger, whom the comedy staple plays with curious empathy in Marielle Heller’s biographical dramedy Can You Ever Forgive Me?.

As against type as McCarthy went for the film, she loved exploring the complex soul under the grime — one who earned a living selling documents she wrote in the voices of Dorothy Parker and Noël Coward.

“There’s something about a prickly, grumbly person who has a soft, chewy center that fascinates me, and I want to pick away at it…. even if the bear bites back,” McCarthy explains. “[Lee] loved the work. Even after she got caught by the FBI, she still considered it some of her best work. I hope at the end, [audiences] really like her.”

In McCarthy’s hands, nothing has ever been easier.

InStyle Magazine has chosen Melissa to feature on the cover of their Badass Woman issue.

Dedicated to her craft, devoted to her family, Melissa McCarthy is as empathetic as she is funny, and the world is responding in kind.

Melissa McCarthy is thoughtfully perusing a menu at a restaurant in Los Angeles’s Silverlake neighborhood. She looks like a very chic art teacher this evening, wearing a black turtleneck and a Klimt-esque velvet robe. She pulls out a pair of dark pink Gucci reading glasses, which make her resemble the poster for Life of the Party if the party were … fashion.

It’s a good time to be McCarthy right now, even though she, of course, excels at creating good times for other people. She’s been nominated for both a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award as best actress for her performance as the late biographer Lee Israel (who infamously forged letters from quotables like Dorothy Parker and Noël Coward) in Can You Ever Forgive Me? It’s her first dramatic role, and it makes you wonder why it took so long. McCarthy’s humanity and pathos illuminate everything she does — her big-screen gags, highly physical or deliberately sly — and she is clearly proud that her exploration of a less rib-tickling story is paying off. After we order tequila gimlets (“Oh, I’m a Scotch girl, but I’m gonna try one,” she says), we talk badassery and beyond.

LAURA BROWN: Can You Ever Forgive Me? received glorious reviews, and now you have all this awards talk. Have you felt any sort of palpable change?

MELISSA MCCARTHY: It just feels so nice to do something that you like so much and had such a good time making. I’ve been weirdly lucky with liking almost everything I’ve done, but I loved [director] Marielle Heller, and I love that damn Richard E. Grant. Also, it’s a story where there’s a friendship and you feel something, and your heart feels something, and you think about the world. Not in a preachy, bullshit way, just in a really nice way. People have responded so positively. It makes me very happy, but also it gives me a boost that people still care about people.

LB: Do you think there’s a tendency to underestimate the potency of a simple, emotional story?

MM: I think people go through their whole day not looking at another person. You know, you take a train or a bus and you could be sitting there naked and no one even looks up.

LB: There was the time you tried that.

MM: I tried it. It did not go well. You cannot unring that bell. [laughs] But I do think the power of this movie is that you can’t not click into the human condition.

LB: How important is it to you to represent that to people?

MM: Even if it’s a broad comedy, I think it’s important to see people who maybe we shouldn’t like, but we like them anyway. Let’s not judge people like, “Ugh, they’re obnoxious, they’re too much of a people pleaser, or they’re grating or harsh.” It’s like, “Yeah, but we all do that.” I still think it’s good to show people who aren’t so shined up and pretty and perfect.

LB: When did you realize what your currency was as a performer?

MM: I knew I loved performing when I started stand-up in New York [in the early ’90s], but I found the rooms to be very negative and aggressive. The only way to survive was to shred someone in the audience. That was not my thing. Not because I’m some Pollyanna who can’t take a swing at somebody, but there just wasn’t a point in it. Although for some reason, the guy who yells “Show me your boobs!” is everywhere. It’s amazing. I don’t think I ever did stand-up where someone didn’t yell “Take off your top!” as I’m walking onstage. I was like, “Are you the same guy? Do you think you’re original? Do you really, massively wanna see my boobs?” Then I would go home feeling so sad for him. He was lashing out at women but probably really lonely and wanted a nice woman to go out with, or whatever his deal was.
