We were reading up on our celebrity gossip when we came across an article from People magazine. Apparently the Oscar-nominated actress, Melissa McCarthy, was referred to as "tractor-sized" in a nasty film review earlier this year. From People:
"The review – written in February by Rex Reed of the New York Observer, who panned the film, Identity Thief and called McCarthy a "female hippo" and a "gimmick comedian who has devoted her short career to being obese and obnoxious" – drew criticism nationwide."
However, being the confident, and beautiful, woman she is, McCarthy reacted calmly with her only question being, "why would someone O.K. that?"

We love Melissa and think her humor and charm make her a delight to watch on screen! We can't wait to see her alongside Sandra Bullock in The Heat later this month!
