Melissa McCarthy is known for her fun and fearless roles on camera, but it's what she's doing off-screen that's catching everyone's attention.

The comedian, turned designer, is launching her "Melissa McCarthy Seven" clothing line and she's taking aim at America's malls for the way they treat plus-sized women.

McCarthy says she feels malls' segregate plus-sized women and stick their clothes out of the way in a back corner of the store.

Her mission to change this starts with her new clothing line saying retailers that carry her sizes - will have them for display all in one place. The new label will feature 80 pieces in sizes 4 to 28, and McCarthy says it's important for her to make shopping for clothes a more enjoyable experience for plus-size women.

To that, we say "way to go Melissa" -- showing us yet again, how being funny and confident can make you beautiful inside and out!
