Hot or Not: Melissa McCarthy

02.05.2013by: Cherry Liquor

I'd like to point out that there seems to be an odd middle ground when it comes to women of size. I'm not saying "women of size" to include only the big girls. I'm thinking about how many Schmoes I've heard complain that skinny actresses need to eat cheeseburgers. (Pasta type carbs are far more effective for weight gain, just FYI.) Most constantly praise the "healthy" look on women in films and television. But what looks healthy on screen often looks scary in real life. Between this week's release of IDENTITY THIEF and next month's MISS CONGENIALITY 3 THE HEAT, you're going to be seeing a whole lot of a whole lot of this woman. Let's discuss.

Melissa McCarthy

I've listened to the fat girls complain about how insulting it is to them to hear the words "you have such a pretty face!" as if the rest of them didn't matter. When I analyze it deeply, I comprehend their concern. "You're so pretty!" would be much nicer and wouldn't have the hidden undertones. So it's hard that I want to say here, when I look at this first image, that Melissa McCarthy has a pretty face. Because it's true and I'm not intending for it to be rude.

It's interesting that most women I talk to also tend to remember McCarthy from her long running role on "Gilmore Girls." Other than the fact that I thought Lauren Graham was a babe and that there was no comprehensible way that she would have been a teen mom who turned out that well adjusted, I don't recall Melissa from that. I recall her fondly in that Ryan Reynolds movie, THE NINES, which wasn't great but had moments of thought-provokingness. I love that she was the voice of DNAmy on "Kim Possible." (Hey! I like cartoons! Especially about cute teen redheads and naked mole rats! And I was really only watching because Patton Oswalt was the voice of Professor Dementor.) Not only that, the role she had as Dina in the short-lived "Samantha Who?" gave her a lot of room to be cool too.

So here's my dilemma. When BRIDESMAIDS came out, I thought she was the best thing in it. The speech she gives Wiig when she comes charging into the house with all the dogs is amazing. But now McCarthy keeps popping up in these ranting, foul-mouthed scenes (THIS IS 40, anyone?) and that really turns me off. Because I liked Melissa more the way she seemed to be. Not extreme, but definitely funny. Not forced, which made her that much more attractive to me. I honestly think she is a beautiful, talented woman who pushes the limits not just because she's fat but because she's GOOD. But if the trend continues, I won't think "you're pretty!" anymore. Yannow?

What do you think of Melissa McCarthy?

Having dated 2 girls who were heavier than me (but not quite as heavy as Melissa), I have to say no. Melissa is not hot. I broke it off with those girls because one was a psycho, and the other had no self-esteem.

Fat people are fat, not hot. Unless you also happen to be fat, but then it's just sad. Because fat people are sad, just like alcoholics...like me...so...yeah shes hot. Or is she fat?

Couldn't agree more. She's sometimes okay but she's not doing anything we haven't seen done better already. An Academy Award nomination? Come the fuck on.

I like women with curves

but she looks overweight, bordering on obese. Funny actress, though.

Fat guys are funny, not fat girls

Is this a f-cking joke? This gastropod is only perceived as "funny" to her fellow fat Americans. Take away her fatness and she has nothing. She's disgusting. The only reason I might see this film on DVD after 12 beers is to witness her getting severely hurt, that I would consider mildly entertaining.

NOT AT ALL

I am still laughing, what a great idea to put a girl who might literally be the size of a baby hippo on the "hot or not" section. Yeah hot in the way you look at a cow and say "I can t wait for someone to kill that thing and make beef jerky out of it".

Something's happened.

Now? No I wouldn't. But, say 5 years ago...I would. Back when she was finishing up Gilmore Girls & did 'The Nines' with Ryan Reynolds, I thought she was totally cute, but (Now keep in mind I have not seen bridesmaids) lately somethings happening, I don't think it's a 'weight' issue, but she seems to be developing very pronounced jowls.

With that said, pre bridesmaids...I would've happily been all over her, or preferably, underneath her.

"I'm thinking about how many Schmoes I've heard complain that skinny actresses need to eat cheeseburgers."

Unfortunately a lot of men think that if women with bodies like Keira Knightley suddenly started eating more they would magically grow curves. In reality they would just end up with beer guts.

Pro tip: stay away from any guy who sincerely makes comments like that because they know nothing about women.

Incorrect. Women tend to pack extra weight on their breasts, hips and thighs. That's why women actually handle excess poundage better than men because it's more evenly distributed.

Big gals can be attractive (like Adele, or even Lena Dunham to a point) but she is not one

And even worse
she's not even funny.
She's like a Chelsea Handler, or that girl in class who thinks she's funny and wants to be on SNL but nobody laughs at her "jokes" (which are just knicked from SNL gags) and gets mad at you for not laughing.

Not at all; and it's not just her obesity that's zapping my libido, it's her annoying personality. I don't find her—or her new show—entertaining in the least bit. And that's not because I hate fat people, it's because I hate 'annoying' fat people.

Next! :p

Not gonna lie. After 3 Long Islands and a great dance sesh of Mambo No.5, she would get annihilated in my mattress of bedlam. Fuck you.
