Melissa McCarthy was on the cover of Elle magazine in ghastly 1980’s Elizabeth Taylor hair. Other than that, she looked rather lovely, except a lot of people thought she was being “fat shamed” because she was covered up in a large overcoat. But Ms. McCarthy wanted the coat. She doesn’t get the fuss and she explains how the shoot went down. From E! News via E Online:
What I found so bizarre is I picked the coat. I grabbed the coat. I covered up. I had a great black dress on but I thought, it comes out in November. I was so sick of summer. I live in Southern California. I was like, ‘Give me a big coat to wear. Give the girl some cashmere!’
I picked the coat. They were like, ‘The dress is really great,’ but I was like, ‘Yeah, but look at this.’ I was just shocked I didn’t steal it. Now I think I really should have the coat. I’m petitioning for that coat. Give me that coat. I earned it, damn it!
Got it, everyone? She picked the coat. She loves the coat. She loves the cover.
Hopefully this will end COATGATE 2013.
