As a working mom, Melissa McCarthy has a lot on her mind.

But conforming to Hollywood's super-thin standards isn't something she spends a lot of time thinking about.

"There's so many other things to worry about," the 41-year-old Emmy winner told Anderson Cooper on his eponymous talk show Monday. "I still worry about it, but I think, my kids are healthy, I've got a great husband, and I go to work every day and do what I want." 

"I'll keep working on [my body]," the Mike and Molly star added. "I just can't put any time to worrying about it.

But the Bridesmaids actress admitted to Cooper she'd love "to wake up at, like, 94 bounds."

"But I don't think that's going to happen," she quipped.

In the meantime, McCarthy found a creative way to find plus-sized clothing she really likes: she's launching her own clothing line! "I just want people to wear it and feel good about themselves," she told Us Weekly about the line. "I haven't thought about anyone else but me! It's just a lame way to get me clothes I want."
