That being said, the Bridesmaids star did admit to Redbook magazine in their July 2014 issue that she had trouble finding a designer that was willing to dress her size for the 2012 Academy Awards. "When I go shopping, most of the time I'm disappointed," McCarthy said. "Two Oscars ago, I couldn't find anybody to do a dress for me. I asked five or six designers--very high-level ones who make lots of dresses for people--and they all said no."
