Melissa McCarthy Says 'No One Asked' Her To Appear On 'Glimore G
Many have speculated that the reason Melissa McCarthy wasn't listed as a returning cast member in the "Gilmore Girls" revival on Netflix is because she's too busy with her film career to make time for the show.

Apparently, that's not the case.

The actress, who played lovable chef Sookie St. James on the series, claims no one approached her to appear. When a Twitter user wrote, "PUH-LEEZ come back to Stars Hollow!!" She responded: "Thanks for the invite, but sadly no one asked me or Sookie to come back to Stars Hollow. Wish them all the best!!"

Melisa McCarthy Is Spectacular In 'Spy' - Proves To Be The Stron
There are two things I love: comedy and good comedy. Luckily, 'Spy,' has both in spades. Directed by ‘Bridesmaid’’s Paul Feig and starring the eff-tacular Melissa McCarthy, ‘Spy’ asks what if Miss MoneyPenny stepped from behind her desk to save James Bond? Although '24' and ‘Chuck’ briefly touched on that, it doesn't hurt to re-visit it again. Like the parody homage films before it, 'Spy' is part 'Bad Boys' and part 'Hot Fuzz,' paying deference to the spy and action films before it, while establishing its own incredibly high action standard yet maintaining non-stop hilarious humour.

“I don’t remember ever leaving it. All of a sudden, I literally was like, ‘I’m in water.’ I didn’t know if I was up or down and I thought, ‘Holy god, I’ve got that wig on.'"
