WATCH: Melissa McCarthy Shares Never-Been-Told Story About Bridesmaids' Wilson Phillips Scene

  • 10 years after Bridesmaids first hit the big screen, its stars are still sharing never-before-heard stories about their on-set antics. Last night on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Melissa McCarthy revealed that while filming the movie's final scene — during which the ladies are stranded on "little pedestals in the water" for Wilson Phillips' surprise performance — she made her co-stars pee their pants laughing with a face-changing app that turned them all into old men. "I can't name names, but I would say more than two and less than five of us were laughing so hard that we may or may not have wet our pants," the actress shared.

    McCarthy went on to joke that their purple taffeta dresses were the perfect thing to absorb the small accident. "I only go to the bathroom in taffeta," she said. "The wicking properties of taffeta are not appreciated as they should be."

    The Late Show with Stephen Colbert airs weeknights at 11:35 PM ET on CBS.
