'Nine Perfect Strangers': Melissa McCarthy's Hilarious Spa Experience

Nine Perfect Strangers released the final episode of season 1 to Hulu last week, and fans can’t stop talking about the series. The show centers around a wellness retreat called Tranquillum House, where nine unique guests arrive to find healing and relaxation.

Melissa McCarthy plays one of these guests, Frances Welty. It’s always interesting to hear about how the cast of Nine Perfect Strangers implements wellness into their own lives. McCarthy enjoys spas, but her last experience getting a massage took an interesting turn.

Who does Melissa McCarthy play in ‘Nine Perfect Strangers’?

Melissa McCarthy’s character Frances is a romance novelist going through a bit of a crisis. She learns that her publisher doesn’t want her latest book and that a critic wrote a scathing review of her novels. Frances was also scammed by a man named Paul Drabble over the internet.

Paul made her think that the two would get married. Then Paul disappeared after Frances sent him a large amount of money for his son who was supposedly in a car accident.

Frances does go through quite a transformation at Tranquillum. While on psilocybin, she hallucinates a tiny singing version of Paul who she then flushes down the toilet. She also meets Tony Hogburn, and the two end up in a romantic relationship.

McCarthy fell asleep while getting a massage

It seems that many of the cast members of Nine Perfect Strangers enjoy self-care in various ways. “I do enjoy a spa day,” McCarthy said on The Late Late Show with James Corden. The actor then recalled her last spa experience. “The last time I went was pre-crazy COVID and I was in London and I was working and I was so tired because I’d been rehearsing all day.”

“I got in, it was like an hour-and-a-half, I was like ‘this is going to be amazing,’” McCarthy recalled. “I fell asleep so hard that I was like, ‘I don’t know if I got a massage.’” The massage therapist then woke McCarthy up and left the room so she could get dressed. McCarthy was still nude from the massage, and she was so loopy from just waking up that she walked through the wrong door.

“Finally I get my eyes open and I’m standing in the public hallway. That was the door out and this was the door to the changing room, but I was so out of it.” By some miracle, no one was in the hallway and the door didn’t lock on McCarthy, but it must have been a pretty jarring way to wake up.
