Melissa McCarthy looked gorgeous in yellow at the Los Angeles premiere of the movie Ghostbusters.
McCarthy smiled broadly as she posed on the red carpet alongside co-stars Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon.
The all-female comedy is a reboot of the 1984 cult classic “Ghostbusters,” which starred Bill Murray and Dan Akroyd.
Akroyd, who co-wrote the original Ghostbusters, is an executive producer on the 2016 reboot.
At the L.A. premiere, McCarthy wore a form-fitting floral dress that spotlighted her 75-pound weight loss.
The 5-foot-2 Melissa, who once weighed more than 236 pounds, has slimmed down to a trim size 14 during the past few months with diet and exercise.

McCarthy’s weight loss secrets were a low-carb diet and high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workouts, Celebrity Health Fitness reported.
Other celebrities who have lost weight with a low carb diet include Kim Kardashian, who lost 70 pounds in 6 months on Atkins, as TheImproper has reported.
Low carb, high-fat diets such as the ketogenic and Atkins diets promote rapid weight loss by inducing the body to burn fat for fuel, said obesity expert Dr. Eric Westman, co-author of Keto Clarity.
Research shows a low carb diet reverses type 2 diabetes and curbs inflammation — a key driver of weight gain, cancer, and dementia, said Dr. Westman.
