Film’s director and co-writer Paul Feig said: “We had written the role with Melissa in mind, but then I thought I’ve seen Melissa play a brash, larger-than-life character. She’s done it in my movies before!”.
About Leslie, he said: “She’s one of my favorite people on the planet. I don’t normally like comedy that’s big and loud, but she is able to pull that off in a way that feels real, and it’s her,” he said. “I wanted to unleash Leslie on the public in the same way we unleashed Melissa on the public in Bridesmaids, with a very showy role.”
And haters, attack me all you want but when you attack and insult my cast, you've crossed the line. Grow up and leave my cast alone.— Paul Feig (@paulfeig) March 8, 2016
