The "Identity Thief" actress and her husband (and frequent collaborator) don festive attire that would make even Cupid blush and pose for a special holiday-themed THR pictorial.
Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone
"We were going to do a glamorous shot, and we just kept going back to, 'We should do some bad characters,'" jokes McCarthy. "We spent so much time with Groundlings that this is our neutral."
The Funny One
"He's funnier and smarter; I'm just loud," McCarthy declares, while Falcone retorts: "No way. I'm the boring structure guy. She's the fun one."
Getting Into Character
"If people wouldn't think we were crazy, I think we'd walk around like this," says McCarthy. "Like, we'd do a different look every day. It'd be like the joy of my life."
"This is the first shoot of our calendar," jokes McCarthy on set. "We start every year with Valentine's Day," adds Falcone.
"We were Christian singers bringing the religion back to songs," Falcone says of one of the couples first Groundlings sketches together. "We were putting the 'Christ' back in Christmas."
