Melissa McCarthy and Ellen. Two very influential and much loved women in the Entertainment industry. During a recent Ellen show, Melissa recounted her confrontation with a reporter at the Toronto Film Festival who criticized her appearance in the movie "Tammy". She not only confronted the man with grace and wisdom, but also observed the good qualities of the reporter himself.
