Melissa McCarthy Covers 'The Hollywood Reporter'

Melissa McCarthy graces the cover of the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter.

Here’s what the 41-year-old Mike & Molly star and Emmy winner had to share:

On starting a production company with her actor husband Ben Falcone: “To have the opportunity to start developing and being on the creating side of stuff, for me, is one of the most amazing and exciting things that’s happened. I’ve been writing for 15 years, and now, suddenly, people are like, ‘Oh, what’s in that drawer?’ It’s like, ‘Well, I’ll show what’s in the drawer.’”

On launching a clothing line for other plus-size women: “Trying to find stuff that’s still fashion-forward in my size is damn near impossible. It’s either for like a 98-year-old woman or a 14-year-old hooker, and there is nothing in the middle.”

    True, and her role on Gilmore girls was quite different to Bridesmaids and Life as We Know it as well.

    She should try and not be morbidly obese, and then clothes would fit. No prob with curves, but she’s beyond that. And saying that she doesn’t care is proved wrong by the fact that she felt the need to whine about clothes.

    If it comes to the point when you can’t find clothes that fit. It’s not a time to design bigger clothes. It’s a time to wake up and smell the coffee and realise you need to LOSE WEIGHT.

    She really needs to lose a lot of weight. That’s the reason she can’t find many dresses that she likes. She is horribly obese. She doesn’t have to get down to the same size as her cousin, Jenny McCarthy, but she needs to lose a lot of weight to get down to at least half her size. Coming out with her own fashion line is just promoting obesity.

    Maybe she is trying, and what, is she just supposed to go naked in the mean time? Maybe you also don’t know anything about her or what she deals with. I think she is beautiful, inside and out, and maybe you should stop promoting ignorance, I think that’s a much greater problem

    So because I’m fat, I don’t deserve to wear nice clothes? What a load of equine fecal matter!
