Melissa McCarthy Says Drag Inspired Her Ursula Performance In 'The Little Mermaid'

Melissa McCarthy told Entertainment Weekly her performance as Ursula in the live-action remake of The Little Mermaid was inspired by drag. “There’s a drag queen that lives in me,” she told the outlet. “I’m always right on the verge of going full-time with her.” McCarthy added, “To keep the humor and the sadness and the edginess to Ursula is everything I want in a character — and frankly, everything I want in a drag queen.” #TheTeaWithNatalie
