Little and Large move over, there’s a new duo after your comedy crown - and moniker by the looks of it.
- Miranda Hart: 'People Always Mistake Me For A Man'
- Melissa McCarthy On Plus Size Shopping: 'People Don't Stop At Size 12'
Miranda, who at 6ft 1in, towered over her rather more vertically challenged 5ft 2in co-star, even wore flats for the occasion.
The joke obviously wasn’t lost on the ‘Bridesmaids’ star, who spent most of her time on the red carpet looking like she was playing a solo game of hide and seek behind Miranda.
Luckily, Melissa’s other (less vertiginous) co-stars, Jason Statham and Jude Law, were on hand to redress the height balance.
Miranda and Melissa play CIA analysts Nancy and Susan in the 007-style spoof movie, which is directed by Paul Fieg, who also brought us ‘Bridesmaids’ and ‘The Heat’.
Speaking about casting British star Miranda in movie, he told More! magazine: “She's a real person. She's beautiful, but she's not your standard image of the supermodel-y movie star.
“Plus, one of the hardest things in the world to find is people who can swear effectively in a way that's not ugly."
Miranda has previously admitted she struggled to keep a straight face when she was filming with Melissa.
"Melissa and I had a few times of getting giggles. Particularly when she attempted a British accent,” she said.
