Melissa McCarthy, Reese Witherspoon, Penelope Cruz and Shailene Woodley all got to appear on the November issue of Elle Magazine – but it seems that Melissa’s picture is the one grabbing all of the attention. Here’s why (from Us Weekly):

The heat is on! Not everyone loves Melissa McCarthy’s Elle cover for its November Women in Hollywood issue. In fact, a significant number of fans are irate over the fashion glossy’s decision to photograph her swathed in an overcoat, her face partially concealed by her hair — especially in comparison to the magazine’s other cover girls that month, all of whom are much more exposed in their photos.

In an essay for Slate about McCarthy’s cover-up, culture editor June Thomas wrote of the full-figured actress’ Elle shoot, “[She] was photographed in a Marina Rinaldi coat so huge that she could hide her Mike and Molly co-star Billy Gardel underneath. McCarthy’s hair covers a quarter of her gorgeous face, and with her hands stuffed deep into her coat pockets, the only visible flesh is a tiny triangle between the coat’s lapels and the briefest glimpse of calf.”

Elle has since released a statement defending their styling of McCarthy. “On all of our shoots, our stylists work with the stars to choose pieces they feel good in, and this is no different: Melissa loved this look, and is gorgeous on our cover,” the magazine said. “We are thrilled to honor her as one of our Women in Hollywood this year.”While the Heat star certainly looks glamorous and stylish in the cashmere outerwear, she is definitely and suspiciously far more concealed than her fellow honorees are on their covers. Reese Witherspoon wears a sexy cutout Versace dress on hers; Shailene Woodley is clad in a black one-piece swimsuit; and while Penelope Cruz, who was pregnant at the time of the shoot, doesn’t show her body at all on her cover, her face is left relatively bare and natural-looking.

Melissa McCarthy’s Weight Critic: ‘I stand by my remarks about her obesity’

Melissa McCarthys Weight Critic: ‘I stand by my remarks about her obesity’ | melissa mccarthy

A while back, actress Melissa McCarthy was viciously attacked by movie critic Rex Reed, who called her “female hippo”, “tractor-sized” and “humongous”. You can check out the story in this post! Even though he received a lot of backlash for his hurtful and unnecessary words, the movie critic is definitely not in the mood to apologize – from US Magazine:

I can only repeat what I have said before — that I do not have, nor have I ever had, anything personal against people who suffer from obesity,” [Reed] wrote to Us in an email. “What I object to is the disgusting attempt to pretend obesity is funny. It is not remotely humorous, and every obese comedian who ever made jokes about the disease are now dead from strokes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes.

“As a critic whose opinions are constitutionally protected by law, I stand by all of my original remarks about Melissa McCarthy’s obesity, which I consider about as amusing as cancer, and apologize for nothing,” he concluded. In February, the film critic slammed McCarthy, calling the Bridesmaids actress “tractor-sized, a “female hippo,” and a “screeching, humongous creep.”

Reed’s comments immediately outraged fellow industry insiders and fans alike, many of whom criticized Reed for being unabashedly mean-spirited.

On her body size:

“I’ve been every size in the world. Part of my twenties, I was in great shape, but I didn’t appreciate it. If I was a 6 or an 8, I thought, why aren’t I a 2 or a 4?”

On her weight:

“I don’t really know why I’m not thinner than I am. I don’t really drink soda, I don’t have a sweet tooth, and we eat healthfully at home. Sometimes I wish I were just magically a size 6 and I never had to give it a single thought. But I am weirdly healthy, so I don’t beat myself up about it — it wouldn’t help, and I don’t want to pass that on to my girls.”

… says Melissa in Good Housekeeping Magazine.
