Melissa McCarthy was the “belle of the ball” as the comedienne was seen making the rounds and chatting with friends (as well as fans) the entire night while hanging close to husband Ben Falcone. Although her co-star Sandra Bullock wasn’t able to make it to the after-party, McCarthy was happily surprised when actor Ben Affleck stopped by. Affleck tried his luck at playing funnyman as he was overheard telling jokes to Marlon Wayans who plays an FBI agent in the film.
Uptight FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn (Sandra Bullock) and foul-mouthed Boston cop Shannon Mullins (Melissa McCarthy) couldn’t be more incompatible. But when they join forces to bring down a ruthless drug lord, they become the last thing anyone expected: buddies. From Paul Feig, director of “Bridesmaids.”
