The Oscar-nominated actress stunned in a Brandon Maxwell number on the Academy Awards red carpet on Sunday, where she told ET's Nancy O'Dell and Kevin Frazier a hilarious story about accidentally blowing off the iconic singer and actress.
"Richard [E. Grant, McCarthy's Can You Ever Forgive Me? co-star] is obsessed and loves her so much -- always has. Aren't we all. And then he said, ‘Has she seen the movie?’ And I said, I’m not going to call Barbra and ask her if she’s seen our own movie. Like, it’s just not the call I make. And then she put out a Twitter comment saying, 'I did email you. You just blew me off,'" the 48-year-old actress shared. And that's never the comment you wanna see from Babs!
The reason for McCarthy's faux pas? Email.
"I don't check my email! I haven't checked it in years," McCarthy explained. Luckily, she was able to make it right.
"I was like, 'I’m the worst, I’m terrible,'" she said. "She was just laughing. But I did tell her, I really don't check it. I should just not have one."
When she finally did see the email, it was a nice one.
"She just said that she loved the movie and she was really nice about it," McCarthy shared.
