Gabourey Sidibe: ‘You should love yourself, no matter how you look’

August 17, 2010 in Beauty & Body Image, Celebrity Quotes, Gabourey Sidibe by Versus

Even though Lea Michele already brought the Quote of the Day, ‘Precious’ star Gabourey Sidibe has something equally interesting to say:

ESSENCE.COM: You’ve become a symbol of self-love and empowerment. Was that your intention?
SIDIBE: It was a happy accident, actually. People thought I should hate myself because I don’t look like ‘the norm,’ but what is the norm? I absolutely believe that you can be anything you want to be and should love yourself, no matter how you look or what anybody thinks.

Do you guys agree with her statements?
