Melissa McCarthy might prefer to seduce her husband onscreen with a white beret, sandals and the steam heat from her undercarriage, but in real life the key to her successful marriage is "patience and kindness." 

"We have always been lucky that we have worked together for so long but we see the same thing and we have had the same goals," McCarthy told The Daily Mail at the Australian premiere of "The Boss" about her marriage to frequent collaborator Ben Falcone. 

Falcone, who has appeared in many of McCarthy's projects, like "Bridesmaids," "Identity Thief," "Spy" and an episode of "Gilmore Girls," is the director, co-writer and producer of McCarthy's new comedy, cementing their decades long partnership. 

According to the actor, mutual love and respect are the tenets of their marriage, as well as always remembering to give each other space, a difficult task considering their close working relationship. 

Proud parents of two daughters, Vivian and Georgette, McCarthy and Falcone came up together through the legendary comedy troupe The Groundlings and tied the knot in 2005. 

"I think that how we met, writing and performing together, and we love each other and respect each other and we give each other lots of breaks," Falcone revealed about the secret to the couple's successful marriage. "I guess there is lots of secrets!"

For a better picture of McCarthy and Falcone's life together look no further than the funny lady's Instagram account. She often shares equally hilarious and adorable photos of herself and Falcone traveling the world in style, making stops at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and the Rockefeller rink in New York City.
