Well, well, well! Would you have a look at Melissa McCarthy!
No doubt that she looks awesome, however, the actress was at the center of a little controversy when the cover of November’s Elle magazine issue was released.
The cover featured the McCarthy covered up in a heavy trench coat and a big hair ‘do! After seeing the cover, the Internet erupted in a riot of discussion about whether Elle did it on purpose to hide the 43-year-old’s full-figured body.
Unfortunately this isn’t the first time a critic comments on her weight, a critic once called her a “female hippo”. How rude is that?
But amid the so-called scandal, no one really asked McCarthy whether she had a problem with it. At the Elle Women in Hollywood gala, she broke her silence about the controversy. She said:
What I found so bizarre is I picked the coat, I grabbed the coat. I covered up. I had a great black dress on but I thought, it comes out in November. I was so sick of summer. I live in Southern California. I was like, ‘Give me a big coat to wear. Give the girl some cashmere!’
