There are lots of reasons to check out Spy this Friday (Jude Law as a sexy agent is a big one), but it's Melissa McCarthy and her crazy wigs that really steal the show. If you've been following the actress's career since her days in Stars Hollow, you know that the right style of strands, real or fake, have been instrumental in bringing her biggest roles to life. "I always start with the wig," McCarthy has said. "You look so different that it changes your posture, how you carry yourself. It's my favorite thing." Check out some of the star's most hair-raising on-screen moments, including her best wigs from Spy. PHOTOS: Melissa McCarthy's Most Memorable Hair Moments
Exclusive! See the Biggest Stars of #TIFF14 Through the Eyes of InStyle’s Photographer Jerome Corpuz
Team InStyle is in Toronto right now, checking out all the coolest stars and movies at the Toronto International Film Festival. The best part? We set up a pop-up portrait studio right in the middle of heart of downtown to get the inside scoop on all the celebs' newest projects. Photographer Jerome Corpuz is behind the lens taking pictures of the stars, including Salma Hayek and Jake Gyllenhaal. "We kicked off the project with Jake, and it was nice start," Corpuz said. "I knew a little about the film he was in, Nightcrawler, and at the moment when he was discussing his film briefly, that's the moment we got the picture." As for Salma Hayek, she was totally hands-on—she changed the lights to exactly what she wanted and kept checking the photos to make sure she got the angle she wanted. "She definitely knows her face and how she wants to be photographed," Corpuz said. "I was surprised to see how much she knew about photography technically, which is an interesting place to be for a photographer." At the end, it was a collaboration. "We got into a vibe and came to the result together, which was really great." The result is what you see above. Overall, it's been star after star, gorgeous picture after gorgeous picture. "Everyone who has come in to be photographed is really passionate about their work," Corpuz added. "When we're taking the pictures, we talk a lot about the films they have here. Then I try to bring a bit of their real personality into it. These actors are all about creating characters, and that's kind of what it feels like taking their pictures—creating a character through the camera."

Happy birthday, Melissa McCarthy! The actress, best known for her Oscar-nominated role in Bridesmaids and her Emmy-nominated show Mike & Molly, turns 44 today. Though her comedic timing is always on-point, the mother of two has really come to her own in terms of styling. Last night, we spotted McCarthy in custom Marchesa and in a George Kotsiopoulos original at this year's Golden Globes. "I'm completely delighted by people who think, 'I don't care what anybody else thinks, I look great in this, and I rock it and I love it,' McCarthy tells People. "It's such a delightful sort of confidence." Hear, hear! Want more Melissa McCarthy? See her and more stars stun on the Emmys red carpet.
