  • Melissa has responded

After Streisand's curious Instagram comment asking McCarthy is she uses Ozempic turned heads, both stars took to social media to clarify, leaving fans cheering for their newfound camaraderie. In an era where every Instagram comment can spark a wildfire, Melissa McCarthy finds herself basking in the unexpected warmth of Barbra Streisand's spotlight.

It's not every day that a Hollywood heavyweight acknowledges your existence, let alone showers you with compliments. But for McCarthy, that day has arrived, and oh, what a day it is!

A Compliment Worth Its Weight in Gold

"Barbra Streisand knows I exist!" exclaimed a jubilant McCarthy, clutching a magazine tribute to the icon. The video, dripping with fan-girl enthusiasm, captures the essence of McCarthy's triumph.

Streisand's initial comment, "did you take Ozempic?" might have puzzled many, but for McCarthy, the subtext was clear as day: Streisand thought she looked fantastic.

What started as a casual scroll through birthday flowers on Instagram for Streisand, ended up as a viral sensation. Streisand's attempt to compliment McCarthy on her appearance took social media by storm, proving that even legends can get caught in the whirlwind of online chatter.

Later that day, Streisand tried to explain what had happened.

"OMG — I went on Instagram to see the photos we’d posted of the beautiful flowers I’d received for my birthday! Below them was a photo of my friend Melissa McCarthy who I sang with on my album," Streisand wrote on social media. "She looked fantastic! I just wanted to pay her a compliment. I forgot the world was reading!"

"I forgot the world was reading!" Streisand later confessed, highlighting the innocent intent behind her comment.

While the Ozempic query stirred curiosity, McCarthy's grace in accepting the compliment without diving into the specifics of her health or weight loss journey speaks volumes.

The actress, set to dazzle in Jerry Seinfeld's upcoming Netflix movie, 'Unfrosted,' remains focused on her craft, leaving the weight loss drug discourse for another day.

This isn't the first time McCarthy and Streisand have crossed paths. Their duet on Streisand's 2016 album, 'Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway,' showcased a harmonious blend of talents.

But it's their latest interaction that has fans and followers swooning over the genuine warmth between these two stars.
