Actress MELISSA MCCARTHY has been left baffled by a mystery food allergy that's causing her face and hands to swell.
The Gilmore Girls star wakes up some mornings with her eyes swollen shut and her fingers so big her rings no longer fit.
And she's worried something in her diet is suddenly causing her to bloat.
She says, "My face blew up... I still don't know what it is. I'm having some weird allergy thing. My face - I just woke up one morning and it was like, 'Poof!' Both eyes shut..., my neck, my hands, I'm still in the process (of figuring out why).
"I've never been allergic to anything in my life and it keeps happening. I just keep popping crazy Benedryl (antihistamine)."
The '12 Years A Slave' director will receive the accolade at the London Film Festival in October.
Critics from all over the world were asked to name the best movie of the past 16 years.
