Melissa McCarthy Recalls Being Mistaken for Amy Schumer During 'Ellen Show' Prank!

Melissa McCarthy is making an appearance on The Ellen Show, airing today.

During her appearance on the show, Ellen actually brought up what happened the last time she was on the show. During her last appearance, Ellen had her go to a local dry cleaners and play an epic prank where she fainted.

Well, Melissa recalled what happened when one of the dry cleaners patrons saw her faint: she started saying that Amy Schumer, not Melissa McCarthy, had fainted!

“What I heard right before [they called] 911 was: ‘Amy Schumer’s gone down! Amy Schumer’s on the ground!’” Melissa said. “And I was like, ‘Hey!’”

Melissa continued, “She called me Amy Schumer — which to me was my favorite part, what a compliment — but she called me Amy Schumer four or five times.”

“She actually did say she knew it was you but she just kept calling you Amy Schumer even though she — no, she knew it was you,” Ellen interjected. You can watch the September 2019 prank right here!

Melissa McCarthy Joins Nicole Kidman in Hulu's 'Nine Perfect Strangers'

Melissa McCarthy has joined the cast of the upcoming Hulu show Nine Perfect Strangers.

Nicole Kidman is also part of the cast (and FYI, you won’t believe how much money Nicole is supposed to make per episode for Nine Perfect Strangers!)

The show is actually based on the book by the same name, which was written by “Big Little Lies” author Liane Moriarty.

Here’s a synopsis of the book: Nine people gather at a remote health resort. Some are here to lose weight, some are here to get a reboot on life, some are here for reasons they can’t even admit to themselves. Amidst all of the luxury and pampering, the mindfulness and meditation, they know these ten days might involve some real work. But none of them could imagine just how challenging the next ten days are going to be.

Nicole will play the resort’s director, with Melissa set to portray one of the strangers named Francis, Variety reports.

Melissa McCarthy Assumed Her 'The Kitchen' Co-Star Elisabeth Moss Would Be 'Intense'!

Melissa McCarthy and Elisabeth Moss hit James Corden‘s couch together on last night’s (August 6) episode of The Late Late Show with James Corden!

Host James asked the 48-year-old actress about meeting her The Kitchen co-star Elisabeth, 37, for the first time, and Melissa admitted she expected someone far more intimidating, possibly harnessing super powers.

“Not what my first impression was but more of what I thought and geared myself up for. I’m sure like everyone, I’m a pretty weird fan of Elisabeth and everything she’s ever done so I was like, ‘it’s going to be intense’,” Melissa recalled. “I was like, ‘it’s going to be intense, I’m going to try and not make a full of myself, I want to keep up and I’m going to be super prepared. I did have an image of her walking into a room being like ‘I am Elisabeth Moss’ with just like flames in the background.”

“She’s not like that at all,” Melissa assured. “We got along right away and she’s a great enabler.”

Melissa McCarthy also talked about her annual challenge to make elaborate birthday cakes — and judging by the photos, she lacks in design skills.

Don’t miss it when The Kitchen hits theaters THIS Friday (August 9)! Watch the trailer.
