Being an actress isn't fun anymore

“As we get older, there are phases of life that we enter into, and being an actress-comedienne just isn't fun anymore,” she might have said, says a source who remained anonymous. Other reports hinted that she may branch out into other creative fields she is better at (and more interested in), though they didn't provide any details.


For a little while on Wednesday evening, #ThankYouMelissa was a trending hashtag on Twitter. As many fans reminisce and look back on all the unforgettable memories, some may wonder what about now made her make the decision.

“You’ve accomplished everything I ever dreamed of #ThankYouMelissa.”
