Creepy film critic/creep REX REED – rightfully vilified by Hollywood, the general public and the press for his unprofessional, disgusting personal attack on “Identity Thief” star MELISSA MCCARTHY, calling her a “tractor-sized…obese…female hippo” in his review – should be aware (as in, beware!) of this scary scoop:
Melissa’s flick’s not only kicking box-office ass, she literally kicked co-star JASON BATEMAN’s butt during filming.
She gave Jason not one, but TWO bloody noses during fight scenes – accidentally, of course – so “Melissa sure knows how to throw a punch,” says my source.
“In an earlier scene, Jason had gotten really upset and apologetic after accidentally throwing her to the ground, but later…she totally kicked his ass!”
(So watch yours, Rexie!)
