Like, all the little, the actresses from the 50s and 60s, they all look like they had little baby feet but, I certainly never thought that I would be here signing my name in the cement, it's, it's pretty remarkable." What isn't remarkable is that, like all recipients of stars or cement impressions in Hollywood, Melissa has a film out. 'Tammy', which she wrote, produced and stars in is in US cinemas now.
