    Jenny McCarthy is actually funny and very natural. I find Rebel Wilson quite fake and trying too hard to be likeable and funny.
    Jenny McCarthy is a raving lunatic. Do you mean Melissa McCarthy?

    not a fan. as much as I try to like her, there's something about her that bothers me.

    I did see a trailer for how to be single and found myself laughing though.

    I like the movies she is in, and I like the idea behind her but she does rub me a bit the wrong way. I think it's just because she is so loud and in your face and people like that intimidate me a little.
    Also, I think she is trying to make herself what the Americans think the True Blue Aussie Bogans are like, not what they are actually like. At least not the ones I know.

    Nope can't explain it. I cringe every time I see her and think that that's what people think Australians are like. I sure hope not. She's not funny, ever.

I think she's probably just making the bias of Hollywood (and the world at large) work for her instead of against her.

    Most of the larger female celebrities are 'accepted' in spite of their size, iykwim?

    Oprah being a case in point.
    Exactly this...and Amy Schumer is going this way with me too.

    Also, Episodes is awesome. Everyone needs to watch it.
