The Bridesmaids funnywoman was given a star on the famed Tinseltown landmark in Los Angeles earlier this month (May15) in honour of her career, and she was joined by her husband Ben Falcone for the unveiling ceremony outside the TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX.

However, her father was not in attendance for her big moment because he was more interested in cleaning up a lake in his garden.

MCCarthy tells U.K. talk show host Graham Norton, "Shockingly my dad was not there because he was de-weeding the lake. I said, 'I'm not going to get another one of these you know,' and he said, 'I know, but the weeds...' It was strange because he is normally embarrassingly supportive."
