Celebs We Didn't Know Were Related
The Hollywood game isn't unfortunately about how talented you are, it's about who you know. Still, having a famous sibling or relation in Hollywood isn't a guarantee for success. In fact, many celebrity sibs are unsuccessful in the industry. While some familiy pairings are obvious, some will take you by surprise.

Jenny McCarthy and Melissa McCarthy

Jenny McCarthy was already a household name when her cousin Melissa decided to join her in Hollywood. Jenny was already famous for her work on MTV and as a Playboy bunny. In 1997 she was the star of her sketch-comedy series "The Jenny McCar...

Melissa McCarthy Loses Her Head While Filming 'Tammy'
Well, just her hair really - and by 'hair' we mean a wig. But not just any wig. The actress reported that the wig was $9,000 - not exactly dollar store quality.

McCarthy revealed in a Chelsea Lately interview that during a practice run for a jetski scene while filming 'Tammy' she took a bad spill on the water, and the wig, which had been pinned to her real hair, went missing in the course of the wipeout.

“I don’t remember ever leaving it. All of a sudden, I literally was like, ‘I’m in water.’ I didn’t know if I was up or down and I thought, ‘Holy god, I’ve got that wig on.'"

She spent her 20s sobbing, her 30s settling down, and her 40s becoming Hollywood's favorite funny lady. Now Melissa McCarthy, 43, shares in this week's issue of PEOPLE how she found stardom, snagged true love with husband Ben Falcone, 40 - and got the last laugh.

Your 20s are for (lots of) tears: "Yes, in my 20s I used to cry about why I wasn't thinner or prettier, but I want to add that I also used to cry about things like: 'I wish my hair would grow faster. I wish I had different shoes…' Seriously, that's the sort of stuff I would cry about."

Melissa McCarthy has responded to controversy surrounding her recent cover of Elle by explaining the cover was her idea in the first place.

The magazine was blasted for covering up the actress in a winter coat for its Women in Hollywood issue, which printed with several different covers.

However, McCarthy has revealed that the coat was her idea for the November issue. She told E!, "What I found so bizarre is I ...

Melissa McCarthy
Call us clairvoyant, but last week when we first saw the six new covers of November's issue of ELLE magazine -- the 'Women In Hollywood' issue -- we had a hunch that people would soon be freaking out over Melissa McCarthy's cover.

The new issue features six different covers, including Reese Witherspoon in a little black cocktail dress; up-and-comer Shailene Woodley showing some leg in a swimsuit; Naomie Harris in a long, midriff-baring black dress; a close-up of Penelope Cruz's beautiful face; Marion Cotillard in a sports bra... and Melissa McCarthy with wind-swept hair in a heavy coat.

Sandra Bullock has revealed that she doesn't think she will work on a possible sequel to her surprised comedy hit The Heat, in part because of her previous track record with sequels.

The R-rated comedy, also starring Melissa McCarthy, made over $220 million worldwide against a $43 million budget. The breakout hit immediately generated buzz of a sequel.

However, Bullock recently told Entertainment Weekly, "I know they say never say never, but right now, I can’t imagine it. I don’t want to ruin what Melissa and I had. If a miracle happens where [a script] shows up that really and truly outd...

Review: 'The Heat' Is Far From Hot

June 28th, 2013 1:00pm EDT
'The Heat'
On paper this film must have sounded like a great idea.

A super uptight, friendless, socially awkward FBI Agent has to partner with a foul mouth, crass Boston cop in order to bring down a vicious drug lord. Add Oscar winner Sandra Bullock and Academy Award nominee Melissa McCarthy to the mix, plus director Paul Feig (Bridesmaids), and you have a perfect female "buddy flick."

What could possibly go wrong?

Well, in the case of "The Heat," written by first-time screenwriter Katie Dippold, a great deal went wrong - mainly the film, which is a comedy that just isn't funny.

Melissa McCarthy Shrugs Off Comments From Movie Critic Who Called Her 'Tractor-Sized'

Actress Melissa McCarthy has spoken out over the cruel comments famed movie reviewer Rex Reed made about her while reviewing her movie Identity Thief back in February.

Reed likened the actress to a "female hippo" and referred to her as "tractor-sized" in his write-up about the film before slamming her acting skills and calling her "a gimmick comedian who has devoted her short career to being obese and obnoxious with equal success."

McCarthy brushed off the comments in a new interview with the New York Times though, saying her first reaction was "Really? Why would [an editor] O.K. that (fo...

Editor Disfigures Melissa McCarthy's Face And Neck On 'The Heat' Poster

Melissa McCarthy might be surprised when she sees herself on the poster for upcoming film The Heat.

McCarthy appears on the poster alongside co-star Sandra Bullock, who appears to have gone through some editing as well. However, the real story is what happened to McCarthy's face. It looks way too small for her body, and has the tell-tale signs of editing thanks to a blurred like around her neck and chin.

McCarthy has never been ashamed of her curves, so we doubt the demand came from the actress. Whoever ordered the change undoubtedly hired an amateur editor, as many outlets are calling it...

Review: 'The Hangover Part III' - Someone Forgot The Funny

I judge how good a comedy is, by how much I laugh, as well as how much the audience laughs...or doesn't, as was the case last night, sitting in the theatre, watching 'The Hangover Park 3'.

It's been two years since our guys...Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and Doug (Justin Bartha) have had any encounters with strippers, weird tigers, monkeys, gangsters or drugs.  In fact, they are all happily married and living the good life in suburbia.

The only member of the Wolf Pack who doesn't have his life together is (unsurprisingly)...Alan (Zach Galifianakis.) And now, he's off his meds. He...

85th Academy Awards Fashion: The Best & Worst
The biggest event of the year in Hollywood took place on Sunday night - The 85th Annual Academy Awards - and the stars primped and preened for their red carpet appearances.

There weren't any major fashion flubs (and admit it, that's one of the reasons you tuned in to watch!) but there were a few style missteps. For example, usually a "best" list regular, Halle Berry looked a little too space age in a black and silver heavily striped Versace gown.

Kristen Stewart also disappointed in a Remm Acra lace dress that didn't do much for her skin tone nor her figure.

Conversely, Jennifer Aniston'...

MTV Movie Award Surprises: Can 'The Help' Beat 'Hunger Games?'

The MTV Movie Awards have their finger on the pulse of 2011/2012 cinema with tons of nominations for The Hunger Games, Bridesmaids and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 2. If they’re really current, Hunger Games will sweep but there are a few interesting surprises here too.

The Help is a nominee for best picture. Maybe it’ll be the dark horse winner and make up for losing the Oscar? Only if Hunger Games and Bridesmaids split the vote. It’s interesting that MTV acknowledges the popular historical drama, perhaps doing its part for civil rights education.
