Default Melissa Mc Carthy

She is now losing weight, jumped on the diet wagon. All for her new clothing line launch. Last year she was quite happy not to diet. Why do people change?

It's sadly just like Jennifer Grey getting her nose job. People loved her for what she was.

It's just horrible when women think for themselves.

What I was saying is, one minute she states she is happy as she is, then has a change of mind. What are you trying to say about my post? Am I not entitled to an opinion just as you are?

Yep, because no one in Hollywood has ever told Ms. McCarthy to lose weight. That would never happen.

She wasn't always as big as she is now. I have gained and lost MANYYYYYYYYYYY times in my life. Not because someone told me to but because I decided it was what *I* wanted for myself at that time.
She already ran the gamut of sizes....and does a diet mean she's going to be size six again? Maybe.....maybe not *shrug*

I like her either way.....


Perhaps the point that someone was trying to make earlier is that only liking a person because they are fat is as bad as only liking thin people? I'm a funny bird that prefers people to like me for who I am.....how I am.

Of course they did, but she's a grown-ass woman and makes her own decisions.

When in Rome....more rolls will be available to her and it's a very competitive field to be in, so sure she's under pressure. However, it's her body and her life. I applaud her professional and personal successes.

I just love that little message that pops up when I log on to Dimensions....Hi Dex, it appears you haven't posted in a while, why not comment or join a discussion etc etc. Well, here is one damn good reason why I don't very much. Yeah, I like some women because of their fatness, so what? If all of you large women don't want to be admired by a stranger from a distance because of your physique, just say so. Sounds like some of you here are just here to bitch and complain about your sad lives and to play "God" to the rest of the community. If you want to lose members and support, keep on posting negative comments after someone asks a question or makes a comment in innocence.

To answer your questions, "why do people change?"

Because being the same all the time is freaking boring. Because they want better for themselves. Because because because...there are a multitude of reasons. Maybe she missed a favourite pair of jeans she can't wear anymore, maybe her blood pressure went up, maybe she just wanted to feel better.

You should check yourself before you throw an entire community (that you participate in so little to begin with) under the bus.

She's a grown woman and can change anything, at any time, for any reason.

End. Of.

I want her to be in a movie where they don't make fat jokes. I like her in movies. But fat jokes just aren't funny. And I haven't heard an original one in years. They take me out of the movie.

There is too much $ to be made. Tammy was hilarious but not many supported her in theaters. I don't blame her for trying to branch out as Mike and Molly is nearing the end of its run. If she wants to lose let her, nothing is worse than another Carnie Wilson still moping about surgery after weight loss surgery as opposed to making new music and actually living life.

I strongly doubt this!

The issue has been discussed several times & places on here - but with someone as high-profile a heavy actress as Melissa McCarthy staying that way (or at least not getting really skinny down to a size 6 or so) is a form of job security. She's the A-list in the fat niche - on which list would she be if she dieted down to standard Hollywood size? Competition there is much fiercer.

Also - which fat actor or actress do you know who was seriously successful after they lost weight and switched role profiles?

I can't think of any.
And don't say Jennifer Hudson - she's totally lost her USP now that she's another interchangable black barbie. There is no potential Oscar material coming her way any more right now.
Among the male actors actually several put the weight back on pretty quickly.

Melissa McCarthy is free to do as she sees best for herself; she deserves any respect and support for that. She seems to be a smart person, so it should be unlikely she's doing it for professional reasons.

An entire community? Seems to me like a small handful of people who think they rule these boards and are so set in their ideals that they refuse to accept or listen to another point of view. Yes, I do not post much and guess what, I will not be posting at all in the future. There are plenty other "magazines" out there in this day and age. People like yourself do not do the size acceptance movement any favors....in fact, your attitude has almost turned me against all you try to achieve. When I see my tax dollars going towards keeping some person who has eaten themselves into disability, it gets me disgruntled. Obviously it does not apply to you in Canada!

wtf are you talking about? Your first post is bitching about someone losing weight and now you're disgruntled... cause your tax dollars bought a fat person a taco?
