Australia feels like home! In a new interview with InStyle Magazine, Melissa McCarthy, 50, revealed that she’s considering moving Down Under for good 

‘Everyone is so chatty. I’m a Midwestern gal who lives in L.A., where no one wants to talk to you. And here I’ll be in the grocery store, and I can’t go down a single aisle without talking to somebody. It’s wonderful,’ she added.

Melissa has been filming the $100million Hulu mini series in the scenic coastal town of New South Wales since August.  

In December, a source told the The Daily Telegraph that Melissa enjoyed working in Byron also much that she wanted to shoot her next project, God’s Favorite Idiot, Down Under.
