Am I the only gay who dislikes Melissa McCarthy?
She is Roseanne without the irony. I just think she's crass, tries too hard, and I want her to go away.
That insipid "Identity Theft" is a total waste of celluloid, and I have and will never see her CBS sitcoms.
McCarthyians - how do I best appreciate her? Learn me!

I think she's a good actress, and her character in Bridesmaids was basically what made the movie worth watching for me. I've never seen Mike and Molly because I don't like sitcoms.
But in interviews and such, she seems like she could be kind of mean in real life. But I obviously don't know her.

She is not a good actress. She relies too much on her fatness...
I don't think she was as funny in Bridesmaids. She was uncomfortable to watch, and never watched her sitcom.
I watched Gilmore Girls and only today, found out that she was Lorelai's fat friend/co worker. She is not memorable, unless she uses her fatness to garner attention.

She's hilarious in Bridesmaids. Just watch her final scene with Kristen Wiig if you want to know if she can act. Her comedy comes from a place that is authentic to the character, she strikes a really delicate tone with it.

Agree that she's crass, coarse, vulgar and up feminine. Evidently her fatness is baby weight gone mad.
But I feel sorry for her -- her "stardom" -- such as it is, consists of her mouthing off and being an aggressive, in-your-face pig. The starring roles she's offered are limiting, and she's in a bind. Suppose she WANTED to lose weight, and become a normal-sized comic actress: she now has a team of hangers-on that will tell her she can't do it, that it would kill her career. So she's got to look like a fat, disgusting ox while other, prettier actresses get the glamour treatment and respect.

No OP you are not the only on here who dislike fat people. Haw dare she get all pissy because no one wants to, or is able to make a dress for a woman of her size. She really expects on of these top designers to be able to make her look nice by making her a dress? These people work with scissors, not a magic wond. She needs to realize her expectations are way to high. If she wants to look she need to give the something else to work with. She has the body of a beach ball. I like how she throws the blame in the designers hands and she plays victim. Sad birth, get on a diet and lose weight.

Not only were these characters horrible fat pig jerks who thought the world had wronged them, but their way to cope was by constant swearing, farting, throwing up, belching and hurting everybody in sight; physically and emotionally. Can't stand this bitch. Another gay who dislikes her, but way beyond dislike. Too bad, I did like her in Bridesmaids. I am probably the only person who thinks Bullock is a mediocre talent.
