As you know, Jennifer Aniston addressed the ongoing fascination with her body in a passionate op-ed published for Huffington Post yesterday — expressing her frustration with tabloid publications and journalists constantly speculating whether or not she's pregnant or just "fat."
Totally agreeing with the 47-year-old's attack on body shaming and misogyny in Hollywood, Melissa McCarthy spoke out at Tuesday night's Gildafest'16 in New York City about the need for society to finally care about something other than a woman's appearance.

The Ghostbusters star told Entertainment Tonight she "one hundred thousand billion percent" supports Miz Aniston:
"It's always about how a woman looks, [People say] ‘He's very interesting,' ‘He's a good writer,' ‘She's looking older than she was last time we saw her.'"
"I think everybody needs to stop tearing down women. I just hope it gets to the point where it's embarrassing for people to have such a shallow thought."
Whewww, preach! We're fired up just reading that!
Even though Jen admittedly tries to avoid acknowledging gossip in the media, we commend her for sparking an intelligent conversation about such a huge problem! That's when real change happens!
