Melissa has been candid about her weight loss in the past, revealing that she dropped 70lbs in just a few months in 2003, after embarking on an all-liquid diet – something she vowed she would never do again.

Speaking to Rolling Stone in 2017, the mom-of-two shared that she ‘worried about weight too soon’, as she recalled thinking she ‘battled weight throughout high school’.

‘I look back at pictures of me as a cheerleader, doing sprints, lifting weights, doing gymnastics, playing tennis, and while I wasn’t reed-thin like some girls – we’re so f***ed up in this country that somehow equates that with better – I was a size six the entire time,’ she said.

‘So what on Earth was I freaking out about? Like, I would kill, absolutely kill, to look like that now.’

Discussing how moving to LA changed her, the Hollywood icon added: ‘I stopped walking and ate s****y food. I was in good shape, then suddenly I gained 25lbs, like what the f**k? And then after my second kid, I haven’t lost any, because I’ve been working every day of my life.

‘But it wasn’t like I ever wanted to play the stunning-girl lead part who just says 17 dry lines. That didn’t seem like fun to me.’
