When people comment on Melissa’s looks and criticize her weight,her husband is always there to remind everyone that she is the most special woman in his life.

When movie critic Rex Reed criticized Melissa in a review of Identity Thief, calling her a “tractor-sized Melissa McCarthy” and a “gimmick comedian who has focused on being overweight and annoying in her short career,” her cousin Jenny McCarthy, who is an actress, model, and TV personality, defended her. Jenny told E! News, “That’s just rude. It’s not right to attack someone like that, it’s hurtful and doesn’t help anyone…” She also said, “She’s extremely talented and people recognize that, so…He can go away.”

Melissa discussed losing weight for “The Boss” film she wrote with Ben, saying, “I’ve lost weight, but it’s a constant struggle. If my weight is the most interesting thing about me, I should just move to Minnesota and start a lavender farm.”

She continued, “Women have so much more to offer than just their physical appearance. It shouldn’t be the focus all the time. Imagine asking men the same questions about their bodies.”
