The New Ghostbusters Look Hot AF In Elle Magazine

My heart is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.

The July issue doesn't hit stands until June 21, but Elle has given us a sneak peek and it is GLORIOUS.

Kate McKinnon looks unbelievable:

"I came to a reckoning that [pretending to be other people] is in fact such a real, huge chunk of the way I communicate," McKinnon says in the issue. "I thought it was something I was putting on to disguise something else, but it's not."

Leslie Jones is a picture of slayage:

"I just knew that I was funny, and I knew that it was just a matter of time," Jones says. "I didn't know what was going to actually happen — this is definitely way bigger than I thought — but I knew there was no way I was going to be that funny and nobody was going to notice it."

Melissa McCarthy is perfection incarnate:

"I get so psychotically attached to all of my characters, and I fight for them in probably the most annoying way. I hear myself saying to Ben [Falcone, her husband] or Paul [Feig, Ghostbusters' director], 'She wouldn't phrase it that way.' I know it's such an actory thing, but I feel it to my core: I have to represent the woman I'm getting to be. Even if she's fictitious, she's always real to me: three-dimensional, flawed, loving, screwed-up, as real women are."

AND KRISTEN WIIIIIGGGGG:

"My very first [Saturday Night Live] show I got on something that I wrote. I was weirdly less nervous for that than I was for the first sketch I was in, which was about someone being pregnant in their butt. I think it was Poehler, and we had a baby shower for her and — I was scared that I was going to freeze or swear or pass out."

Check out the full sneak peek on Elle, and look for the issue on June 21.
