On The Late Show With Stephen Colbert Thursday, Melissa McCarthy revealed a previously unknown, and potentially embarrassing, behind-the-scenes moment from the set of the 2011 hit comedy Bridesmaids. McCarthy explained that she’s always a little behind the times when it comes to technology, and that she had just discovered a face-changing app that was new to her. The moment she decided to bust out that app and make her co-stars laugh, may not have been ideal.

“It was brand new to me, so I constantly was making us all into men, especially older men. And when we were out on the water in the last scene right before Wilson Phillips comes on, we were trapped out there because we were on these little pedestals in water,” McCarthy said. “And I can’t name names, but I would say more than two and less than five of us were laughing so hard that we may or may not have wet our pants. So that’s a fun fact that’s never been told.”
