Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish and Elisabeth Moss are giving fans a first look at their female-led mob drama, “The Kitchen”.
The trio appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Thursday to debut the first trailer for the new film, written and directed by Oscar-nominated “Straight Outta Compton” writer Andrea Berloff.
“The Kitchen” finds McCarthy, Haddish and Moss playing three women whose husbands are sent to prison in 1978 New York.
Soon enough the ladies take things into their own hands, taking over the reins of the Irish mafia without missing a beat.
Out in movie theatres on August 9, “The Kitchen” also stars Domhnall Gleeson, James Badge Dale, Common and more.
In their interview with DeGeneres, the three actresses reveal that they didn’t actually know each other.
“Although we met, you just don’t remember,” Haddish tells McCarthy. “I was like stalker-ish, and was like, ‘Hey, I’m gonna work with you some day!'”
“But that doesn’t count, we didn’t know each other,” McCarthy responds.
Haddish jokes, “In my mind, we’ve been friends a long time.”
Later in the interview, McCarthy reveals that the hardest stunt she had to do in the movie was not even a stunt at all.
“I could not, for any amount of time or money, keep a purse on my shoulder,” she says, causing her co-stars to burst out laughing. “God, I wish that was a joke.”
DeGeneres also surprises McCarthy big time by having singer Billie Eilish give her a scare in the middle of their interview, all as payback for McCarthy putting herself into Eilish’s music video while guest-hosting “Ellen” recently.
