Ouch! Melissa McCarthy Suffered Painful Accident While Filming Spy

Melissa McCarthy is one tough cookie. The funny lady took quite a fall just as shooting began on her new comedy Spy. At the SXSW premiere of the movie, McCarthy said, "I slipped on wet marble and I went down. I threw my back out so badly, we spent the whole week trying to get me walking again. It was intense and it was kind of at the beginning of the movie. It was a little dicey." But McCarthy is pretty resilient. Director Paul Feig said, "She's such a strong person." Adding that she did about "90 percent" of her own stunts. McCarthy stars in Spy as a CIA analyst who is enlisted to pull of a James Bond-like mission to save the world from an evil arms dealer. The cast also includes Jude Law, Jason Statham, Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale. Spy is set to hit theaters on June 5.
