The Hollywood lovebirds, who wed in 2005, co-star in Netflix’s new comedy series “God’s Favorite Idiot”.
“I wish it was with a pick-up line,” said McCarthy, while speaking with ET Canada about how her husband first approached her. “[Like] did you hurt yourself when you fell out of heaven?”
“I’m not sure that’s exactly [it],” laughed Falcone.
The pair first crossed-paths while attending an improv class at the LA-based improv company Groundlings.
“We were friends first for a long time,” Falcone continued. “We were writing sketches and stuff together so we had already told each other countless terrible lines.”
“There’s a code of honour I think with sketch groups that the worse you can look in an outfit is kind of like, ‘oh, well they won,'” joked McCarthy. “So he’d already seen me in tight curly perms, and ill fitting dockers. If you’ve seen that and you still want to dip a toe in that I’m like alright, I’ve got him for life.”
“God’s Favorite Idiot” premieres June 15.
