McCarthy Pissed About His Makeup

Don't mess with this pretty mug!

Green Bay Packers coach [intlink id=”67″ type=”category”]Mike McCarthy[/intlink] isn’t happy.

The reason he’s angry isn’t because of anything he’s seen on the field, though.


He’s pissed off because his makeup looked bad in the NFL Films production America’s Game, which tells the story of last season’s Packers. McCarthy said he looks like an idiot.

“That was the first thing Jessica said. I was like, ‘[Expletive.]’ It was the same gal that used to do it for the TV show,” McCarthy said. “I even asked her. ‘Are you sure this looks OK?’ She just kept adding it – you’re in there for four hours, you know – and it pisses me off. Because look at me. I look like an idiot. I hated it. It was terrible.”

McCarthy even goes out of his way to tell Jason Wilde to mention it in his story.

“Put that in there for she reads it. ‘Hey, what did you think of America’s Game?’ ‘I think the makeup was awful.’ That was the first thing my wife said to me. She said, ‘Aaron and Charles were great, but who did your makeup?’ It didn’t feel right, that’s for sure. It felt like I had paint on. Or clay. It was bad.”

Classy move.

Who knew a fat, ugly bastard could be so vain?

Also a good teaching point for you team — always let your emotions get the best of you and be sure to point out other people’s failures publicly.

It will really teach them a lesson.

    The season must be here if Monty is ripping MM. Props for not granting him immunity because he won the Super Bowl. He can be an idiot sometimes.

    No he’s right! He did look awful and I feel bad for him that such a cool show, that will be broadcast for so long, will be a sore spot for him. The producer even more so, and the make up girl both effed up bigtime in allowing that to happen.

    Wow. What a shitty move by McCarthy. What’s he complaining about? He’s squeaky-eyed for crying out loud!

    I cant believe what I am reading on a packers site. It makes me not to want to come back here ever again. Who are you, Monty, to criticize Mike McCarthy’s coaching? That is way over the top, even for you. It kind of makes me want to regurgitate my breakfast. This shows how much class you have. And to think, I liked reading your stories before this, but now i dont even want to look at this site. This is just disgusting use of the english language.

      aha, he was criticizing his douchery, if he was dissatisfied with his ugly mug not being beautified he should have brought it up with the makeup artist in private, not made a shit show out of it. not his coaching. anyway, Monty where are our saints v packers game day predictions :)

      I didn’t know Kristofer was a woman’s name. Maybe you’ll enjoy the site more after you are finished ovulating.

    this is the worst article i’ve ever read, and i’m a big fan of this site. callin coach McCarthy a ‘fat, ugly bastard’ is way out of line. I’m all for rippin on the rest of the NFC North, but slurrin on McCarthy is pretty low, especially coming from a Packerbacker yourself.

  6. Chris K

    I agree… AND this nothing to do with McCarthy’s coaching–if you think so you’re just as dumb!

    That was a low move in general by McCarthy. Terrific coach but he had the right to feel this way but def should have transmitted this message a better way or next year when they are doing his makeup again lol

  7. Rymetyme

    I guess this all depends on just how bad his makeup job was. If it really is as bad as he claims then I don’t see a problem with this. If McCarthy screws up and loses a game to bad coaching I don’t expect anyone to politely tell him behind closed doors — why should a damn tv/movie makeup artist not be held publicly accountable, too?

    The same thing that makes people great coaches, players, etc. can be faults in other situations. On a side note I loved Charles Woodson in the special

    The special was AWESOME, as expected.

    I thought MM looked a little “odd”, but I didn’t think he looked “terrible.”

    I wonder how much of this was a joke by MM.

    Really, I don’t care either way. It was actually refreshing to hear these guys be so candid during the special. The comments about Matthews might be the best part of the show.

  10. Mike R

    I didn’t notice it when I watched it. Also, I am sure that he was somewhat joking about it. It is hard to pick up on sarcasm when it is typed. Have liked MM since day 1, and I’m happy our coach!

  11. Ryan

    I cannot believe the first game hasn’t started yet and I am already having to defend MM. Give the guy a break – he didn’t even mention the girl’s name!

    I love this blog and read it daily (and am not going to give an empty threat to stop doing so ) but I do think that calling anyone, especially the coach who just won our beloved team a Super Bowl title, a “fat, ugly bastard” is stupid.

    • nurseratchett

      Hey, I love MM too, but that doesn’t mean I don’t notice that he looks a lot like fred flinstone.

    Regarding MM’s make-up, per the make-up artist herself “make-up was cleared by all-NFL crew that was on-set, including the producer”.
