Melissa McCarthy responds to comments on her weight

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.'"

Friday's Top Five: Scary movies

It would be a waste of time to figure out why, but it goes without saying that scary stories can be extremely entertaining. And there’s no better way to get in the mood for Halloween than by locking your door, staying up late and watching your favorite flicks that’ll totally freak you out.

From CNN Geek Out: Movies that scare the people who scare us

Hollywood has invented numerous ways to give us nightmares. Monster movies (really the first foray into making audiences scream) employ werewolves, vampires, reanimates and other supernatural beings. The monsters are often conflicted, guilt-ridden creatures that suffer as a result of the crimes they commit against humanity.

Charlie Sheen to return to TV on FX

He's baaack.

Not an entire year has passed since Charlie Sheen was fired oh-so-publicly from his job on "Two and a Half Men," but you can already expect to see the actor back to his old sitcom ways - but on a new show.

As we reported earlier, Sheen's set to star in a sitcom called "Anger Management," one based off the Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson feature of the same name that was released in 2003.

Trailer Park: 'Ghost Protocol' and 'The Lorax'

Tom Cruise's "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol" arrives in theaters December 21, so it's about time we got a more informative trailer.

The clip builds on the scene set over the summer, which began with "ghost protocol" being initiated following an explosion at the Kremlin. But now we know that's not all: the explosion was a set-up, laying the blame at the feet of Cruise's Ethan Hunt and his team.

Now there are only a few members of his crew left, forced to go rogue in order to complete their mission.

'Beavis and Butt-head' back to their old tricks

If you expected anything new or innovative about the resurrected "Beavis and Butt-head" on Thursday night, you would be sorely disappointed.

One thing the dim-witted pair always did well was react to popular culture in their own way, and the premiere saw them attempting to take advantage of the "Twilight" craze, and poking fun at "Jersey Shore."

True to form, their idea of trying to "score chicks" who were obsessed with "Twilight" was to pay a homeless man to bite them so they might turn into werewolves. Instead they ended up in the hospital (which meant they were attended to by female nurses, so to them the plan was a success).
