Melissa McCarthy. Elle magazine. Controversial?

Melissa McCarthy. This beautiful cover... controversial?

That's right, actress and comedienne Melissa McCarthy has been chosen to grace a cover of US 'Elle' magazine's 'Women in Hollywood' edition this month.

But according to Slate, not everyone is so pleased with her shoot.

Her cover counterparts - Marion Cotillard, Shailene Woodley, Naomie Harris, and Reese Witherspoon - all show at least some skin. Melisssa though is almost completely covered, her hands in an oversized coat.

Slate calls McCarthy the issue’s “token plus-size cover girl”. WOW.

Melissa once said she wanted to start a plus size line because she was tired of looking “like a 98-year-old woman or a 14-year-old hooker."

And now, according to US Weekly, 'Elle' has issued an official response to the controversy surrounding the McCarthy cover:
“On all of our shoots, our stylists work with the stars to choose pieces they feel good in, and this is no different: Melissa loved this look, and is gorgeous on our cover. We are thrilled to honor her as one of our Women in Hollywood this year.”
