Melissa McCarthy in 2014

Ozempic, the miracle weight loss injection, has taken the world by storm, allowing its users to suppress their appetite and lose weight quickly.

It’s no wonder then that every time a celebrity appears suddenly and drastically thinner, it is instantly assumed that they have used Ozempic.

The Bridesmaids star this year.

When Bridesmaids star Melissa McCarthy posted a photo to her Instagram page looking slimmer than she has been in years, many of her 13 million followers must have wondered if Ozempic (also manufactured under the Wegovy brand) was responsible.

But it was only superstar singer Barbra Streisand, 82, who came out and asked him. ‘Did you take Ozempic?’ she wrote in response to the image. McCarthy supporters instantly attacked her and accused her of being rude and insensitive.

McCarthy, 53, has opened up about her struggle with weight and revealed that big-name designers have refused to dress her for red carpet events.

When the question came about Streisand’s Ozempic, the actress said she was flattered that the superstar noticed her… but she deleted the image and deflected the question.

So while some, like Melissa McCarthy, keep us guessing, which Hollywood celebrities admit to using punching to lose weight?
