GQ: The problem isn’t even with anything they said, but here’s a picture of McCarthy, uh, eating her husband, Ben Falcone. Come on, think about how this looks.
Good Housekeeping: Their tame cover story dedicates a sizable portion to discussing McCarthy’s weight and fitness/food habits, under headings like “Happy At Any Size,” and including transitions like, “McCarthy doesn’t dwell on the numbers on the scale.” Not terribly offensive, but do we really need to inadvertently body-shame McCarthy by making her justify her size in every interview?
Elle: McCarthy has said she selected the now-infamous, oversize cashmere coat during her Elle cover shoot. But the fashion mag chose it for the cover, while many of the other actresses covering Elle for their Women in Hollywood issue wore skin-baring outfits. Hey, at least it wasn’t a headshot!
