Unfortunately, whenever something about Melissa McCarthy pops up in various corners of the Web, odds are someone will have something snarky to say about her size.
In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, the "Bridesmaids" star and crowned "New Queen of Comedy" explains what she thinks when she reads remarks about her weight, in particular one from a blogger.
"My first thought was, 'Gosh, I hope she doesn't have a daughter,'" she says, according to JustJared.com. "And then after a second I thought, 'What a sad, troubled person. You're making such a s--y judgment on people.'"
The 41-year-old actress continues, "Do I sometimes hope I wake up in the morning and people are like, 'What's wrong with her? She looks emaciated.' Of course I would love that. I'm such a clothes whore I would love the opportunity to be a hanger. But I think I'm more confident than I've ever felt in my life. I always thought it was worth the fight. Now I know it is."
