Dan Aykroyd Is Doing An All-Male Ghostbusters Sequel Now, Because PENIS

Well, this sounds like it’s going to be a goddamn disaster: Now that Paul Feig is directing what can only possibly be the most amazing revamp of “Ghostbusters” ever, starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon, Sony Pictures is also planning a third sequel with an all-male cast because PENIS. Seriously, I…

Just In: The Cast Of The All-Female “Ghostbusters” Movie Is So Perfect

Who ya gonna call? Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, it seems! These four hilarious women are your next Ghostbusters. Negotiations are ongoing, but The Hollywood Reporter says the cast is all but a lock for the Paul Feig-directed reboot of the popular ’80s movie franchise. Normally I’m wary of reboots, but…

Melissa McCarthy Calls Out The Media Coverage Of Her Weight

“In my 20s I used to cry about why I wasn’t thinner or prettier … [I] used to cry about things like, ‘I wish my hair would grow faster. I wish I had different shoes.’ I was an idiot. … Sure, criticism can sometimes still get to me. Some things are so malicious, they knock the…

Melissa McCarthy Is Starting Her Own Clothing Line Because She Couldn’t Find Enough Trendy Clothes In Her Size

“When I go shopping, most of the time I’m disappointed. Two Oscars ago, I couldn’t find anybody to do a dress for me. I asked five or six designers—very high-level ones who make lots of dresses for people—and they all said no.”
Melissa McCarthy is starting her own plus-size clothing line, and she told Redbook

Watch The Full Trailer For Melissa McCarthy’s “Tammy”

The full trailer for Melissa McCarthy’s upcoming film  “Tammy” has arrived and, surprise, surprise, I was sold within just a few seconds of watching the hilarious comedienne strut her Croc-clad feet to the tune of Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise.” Donning a fast food bag on her head, the titular character bossily robs a fast…

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

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…

Bill Murray And Melissa McCarthy Film A Movie Together In NYC

Tell me, HOW is it that I did not know until very recently (like, in the past 20 minutes) that Bill Murray and Melissa McCarthy, two of my favorite people in the entire world (okay, fine, in all of Hollywood, I’ve got a family and stuff), were starring in a movie together? And not only…

5 Reasons You Need To See “The Heat”

The new Sandra Bullock/Melissa McCarthy movie “The Heat” debuted in theaters this weekend, and killed it at the box office, despite getting so-so reviews from critics. I have no idea what those guys are talking about. This movie is funny. So funny. McCarthy and Bullock star as a cop and FBI agent, respectively, tracking a murderous drug kingpin.

Melissa McCarthy Outperforms Comedy’s Leading Men — Remind Me Again Why “Women Aren’t Funny”?

We all know that Melissa McCarthy is on a roll — between “Bridesmaids,” “Identity Theft,” and now the $40 million dollar opening of her buddy-cop movie “The Heat,” this lady is on fire.

According to…

Style Stealer (Plus): Melissa McCarthy’s Rockin’ Outfit

I usually have to use non-plus-size actresses as inspiration for Style Stealer (Plus!) posts because there are so few plus-size celebrity women, and even fewer ever pop up in our photo feeds. Melissa McCarthy always looks gorgeous all dolled up at red carpet events, but I was extra excited to see her dressed down a…

Melissa McCarthy On Movie Critic Who Called Her A Hippo: “Really?”

“Really? Why would someone OK that?” That was Melissa McCarthy’s response to a New York Observer movie critic who called her a “hippo” in his review of one of McCarthy’s films. Had she been younger when she read such a comment, the 42-year-old actress said, “It may have crushed me.” [People]

The Soapbox: Melissa McCarthy, Rex Reed & Hippo-Gate

I shook my head recently when I read about New York Observer film critic Rex Reed’s personal insult toward actress Melissa McCarthy. In a review of her latest offering, “Identity Thief,” he called her “tractor-sized” and as big as a “hippo.” Isn’t it interesting, I thought, that a man, who himself is part of a…

Melissa McCarthy On The Endless Quest For Perfection

“Pretty much everyone I know, no matter what size, is trying some [diet] system. Even when someone gets to looking like she should be so proud of herself, instead she’s like, ‘I could be another three pounds less; I could be a little taller and have bigger lips.’ Where does it end? You just have…

Watch Melissa McCarthy Steal Jason Bateman’s Identity

We’ve been waiting for Melissa McCarthy’s next move post-“Bridesmaids,” and we are so happy she’s going to be in a new movie with Jason Bateman. In “Identity Thief,” Jason and Melissa go toe-to-toe over a stolen identity and mountains of debt. Very stoked for this!

If This Is What 40 Looks Like, I’ll Skip My 30s With Pleasure

Oh, Shirtless Paul Rudd. You are Shirtless Paul Rudd and you’re not even the best thing in this trailer. “This Is 40″ is the sort-of sequel to “Knocked Up,” about Paul and Debbie, the sister and brother-in-law of Katharine Heigl’s character. Now they’re 40 and feeling positively ancient. But they’re still got pot brownies, a…

How To Play The “Bridesmaids” Martin Scorcese Drinking Game

I found last night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards to be terribly dull, aside from learning the rules behind Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, and Melissa McCarthy’s fun drinking game. So, here’s how it works: every time someone says Martin Scorcese’s name (so, you know, often), take a drink! Scorcese! Scorcese! I’m drunk! …

“Bridesmaids” Suit Up, Named “Entertainers Of The Year”

I am loving the cover of Entertainment Weekly, featuring the cast of “Bridesmaids” in tuxedos. The six funny gals were named “Entertainers of the Year” by the magazine and I can’t help but agree. Based purely on the number of times the movie made me laugh so hard I almost peed my pants, “Bridesmaids” get…

Melissa McCarthy Shares Spanx Horror Story

I have never worn Spanx, but Melissa McCarthy has officially made me terrified of ever doing so. Wardrobe malfunctions are already all too prevent in my life — from snapped heels to sudden holes in my jeans’ crotch to full-on thong reveals thanks to hearty gusts of wind — so Spanx just sound like a…
