(ABC News) – Melissa McCarthy‘s photo shoot for the cover of the November issue of Elle magazine has caused controversy, but the “Mike & Molly” actress doesn’t quite see what the big deal is.
“[Elle is] a magazine I grew up with and I hadn’t done anything quite like that,” she told omg! Insider. “I was nervous… It was kind of amazing.”
McCarthy, 43, posed for the magazine’s cover, along with Reese Witherspoon and Shailene Woodley, both of whom wore skimpy clothing for their shoots. The more full-figured “Bridesmaids” actress, however, was photographed in a coat, which, her reps have said she picked out.
