Having recently been – rather unnecessarily – lambasted by a critic-whose-name-shall-not-be-mentioned for being overweight, Melissa McCarthy did what any awesome celebrity who’s very honey badger about the situation would do: She went on Sesame Street and showed off her sweet dance moves.
And that girl can move.
Say what you want about the cinematic quality of 'Identity Thief,' but you can't deny Melissa McCarthy's box office power.
Despite -- or perhaps because of -- idiotic, sexist and ignorant reviewer Rex Reed's comments about McCarthy's size in his scathing review of the film, it was a box office heavyweight, debuting at No. 1.
Movie critic Rex Reed had some issues with the film 'Identity Thief,' which stars Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman. Instead of addressing the film's failures on an artistic level, however, Reed did the truly professional thing and attacked McCarthy for her weight.
Hey, Rex Reed? Go get stuffed.
