Mindy Kaling Is Just Fine With Her ELLE Cover, Thank You

  • Mindy Kaling is on the cover of the February issue of ELLE, as are three other, skinnier, actresses. Kaling is not showing as much skin or as much of her body in general on her cover of ELLE, in comparison to the three other actresses’ covers. Some people have found this objectionable. So now, Mindy Kaling has responded to complaints that her normal-woman-sized body was covered up on the cover up ELLE with the most Mindy Kaling-est reply ever. [ET Online]
  • Sophia Bush called her brief marriage to “One Tree Hill” costar Chad Michael Murray “two stupid kids who had no business being in a relationship in the first place” and made reference to them “hating” each other, yet having to deal with it because they still worked together. Sheesh. [US Weekly]
  • The whole family from “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” were in a bad car crash on Monday night, and all suffered multiple, but minor, injuries. Eek! Get well soon. [TMZ]
  • Lily Tomlin married her girlfriend of 42 years, Jane Wagner, on New Year’s Eve. Congratulations! [People] Keep reading »

Melissa McCarthy Thinks Your Outrage Over Her Wearing A Jacket On The Cover Of Elle Was Ridiculous

"Jacketgate" Was Silly

Last month, Melissa McCarthy appeared on the cover of ELLE magazine wearing a long, grey coat over a little black dress. But that jacket wasn’t just a jacket. It was a jacket some in the blogosphere attributed to a “fuck you” on the magazine’s part to women of McCarthy’s girth. Bloggers assumed that the plus-size actress was intentionally obscured under layers of fabric by stylists who were trying to hide her shape, perhaps thinking it would help sell magazines on stands. But McCarthy herself has been public about the fact she chose to wear that jacket. In fact, she picked it out herself! She just thought it was a gorgeous cashmere coat that would be fun to wear (and, in my opinion, it turned out to be a much more autumnal look for November than the usual starlets-in-bandage-dresses covers). Here, Melissa McCarthy is on “Ellen” today talking about how she thought all the fuss around “jacketgate” was completely silly.  It’s a good lesson in how sometimes you need to find out how people themselves feel about issues before getting worked up on their behalf.  Melissa McCarthy seems to have genuinely loved the coat and it is ridiculous that our idea of fighting back about body hatred means everyone showing an equal amount of skin, as opposed to everyone being accepted for how they choose to dress.  Thanks, well-meaning bloggers, but no thanks.

We like David Beckham. A lot. His personality? Who cares? We just like to gaze upon him adoringly. And we especially like this wet, sexy, abtastic shot of Mr. Posh Spice on the cover of the new Elle UK. He’s the first man to ever go solo on the cover of the mag, so they did two versions — the one just for subscribers is posted after the jump. We’re particularly fond of this “dripping wet hunk/junk shot,” but which do you prefer?

Model Coco Rocha Slams Brazil’s Elle Magazine For Half-Naked Photoshop Job

Coco Rocha's Photoshopped Elle Brasil cover

“As a high fashion model I have long had a policy of no nudity or partial nudity in my photoshoots. For my recent [Elle Brasil] cover shoot I wore a body suit under a sheer dress, but recently discovered that the body suit was Photoshopped out to give the impression that I am showing much more skin than I actually was or am comfortable with. This was specifically against my expressed verbal and written direction. I’m extremely disappointed that my wishes and contract were ignored. I strongly believe every model has a right to set rules for how she is portrayed and for me these rules were clearly circumvented.”

– Coco Rocha, who has long been one of the more critical voices of the modeling industry, took to her Tumblr to slam the editors/publishers of Elle Brasil, which Photoshopped her against her wishes into a partially nude bodysuit for their cover. This is a little nipple-y looking.

Well, that was ballsy of you, Elle Brasil, to break contract. I’m assuming they’re so used to models being grateful for a magazine cover at all that they don’t think they have to stay true to their word? [Oh So Coco]
