Melissa McCarthy has responded to being called a “female hippo” and “tractor-sized”.
McCarthy received the personal attack earlier this year by film critic Rex Reed. Reed also calls McCarthy a “gimmick comedian who has devoted her short career to being obese and obnoxious with equal success.”
McCarthy’s initial reaction was “Really?” followed by “Why would someone OK that?”
Despite all the heat McCarthy receives for her voluptuous figure, it doesn’t stop her from being a successful actress with her eye on the future.
