As actors and actresses primp for the Golden Globes, they may forgo a nice meal before the show starts, arriving at the event a little on the hungry side.
The Golden Globes Awards show lasts a staggering three hours, which can make even the most patient of stars’ stomachs start to grumble.
While a gourmet dinner is served at the event, with all the publicity taking place, many stars miss out on their chance to eat the delicious food.
Not to fear as Melissa McCarthy came to the rescue smuggling, not one but 40 sandwiches for her fellow stars, according to Shared.
McCarthy, who is known for her role in “Bridesmaids,” broke the rules that night and helped all the actors and actress get some much-needed nourishment.
On McCarthy’s menu were ham and cheese sandwiches, of course, and she filled her purse with 40 of them.
She passed them out during the event, making sure that no one went hungry that night.
McCarthy’s husband snapped a photo of the illegal sandwiches and at the end of the night, there were only two remaining.
“I’ve been handing them out to everyone,” McCarthy told Variety.
McCarthy joked that next year she would be bringing hot dogs for all.
The stars of the night were appreciative of the lengths that McCarthy went to smuggle her bounty in.
Even actress Olivia Colman credited McCarthy for the sandwich in her acceptance speech for “The Favorite.”
Actress Jessica Chastain wondered how she got them all in, telling Variety, “How did she get them in here? But it’s a good idea because, by the time you get into the ballroom, dinner has already been served, and you’re always so hungry.”
McCarthy appeared to have ordered the sandwiches from Los Angeles, California, restaurant Joan’s on Third, making sure that the meal was on par with the night.
