Gabourey Sidibe: “I keep shrinking! I hope to God I don’t get skinny”

Untitled-1-1 - Gabourey Sidibe: "I keep shrinking! I hope to God I don't get skinny"

On opting for a weight loss surgery last May:

My surgeon said they cut my stomach in half. This would limit my hunger and capacity to eat. My brain chemistry would change and I’d want to eat healthier. I’ll take it!

On loving her new figure:

I was in a war with my body.  If I’d started treating it better sooner, I wouldn’t have spent some many years hating myself. But I love my body now. There’s nothing ugly about me.

On not wanting to be skinny:

I keep shrinking! I hope to God I don’t get skinny. If I could lose enough weight just to be a little chubby I would be over the moon! My beauty doesn’t come from a mirror, never has never will.

On being ready to date:

I am ready to receive a gentleman caller.

… says 33 year-old Gabourey.

I used to hate mirror selfies. Now I do them everyday. I'm just too black and fine! I can't help it! ✊🏿👸🏿✊🏿

On dealing with weight critics her entire life:

I didn’t realize how much it prepared me for real life – I’m still dealing with the haters. You’re in the public eye, how often do people tweet things at you that make you don’t feel great? The second you decide to feel great about yourself is when you feel great.

… says 33 year-old Gabourey, who has slimmed down recently.

Is it too early in the morning for selfies with a Mayfair filter? 👸🏿

Gabourey Sidibe: “I, a plus sized, dark-skinned woman, had a love scene on primetime TV. I felt sexy and beautiful”

GettyImages-495995942_master - Gabourey Sidibe: "I, a plus sized, dark-skinned woman, had a love scene on primetime TV. I felt sexy and beautiful"

Here’s the full story from Daily Mail:

Actress Gabourey Sidibe has responded to critics who fat shamed her after she appeared in a love scene during Wednesday’s episode of Empire. The 32-year-old actress was seen on the show alongside her character Becky Williams’ love interest MC J Poppa – played by actor Mo McRae – in an opening scene that featured the two enjoying an intimate moment on a rooftop. But after the episode aired, the Oscar-nominated actress found herself to be the subject of cruel taunts online, one social media user even created a meme that used a screen shot of the love scene next to the words: ‘Damn, some of you people can’t even get a text back’.

Her response:

I, a plus sized, dark-skinned woman, had a love scene on primetime television. I had the most fun ever filming that scene even though I was nervous. But I felt sexy and beautiful and I felt like I was doing a good job. I’m very proud of the work we all did to make that scene a great opening for the episode. I keep hearing that people are “hating” on it. I’m not sure how anyone could hate on love but that’s okay. You may have your memes. Honestly, I’m at work too busy to check Twitter anyway. #Booked. Hope you enjoy next week’s show!

Gabourey Sidibe Brings Today’s Quotes

FFN_f_51387805 - Gabourey Sidibe Brings Today's Quotes

On living her life with confidence:

I’m an a—hole! Okay? It’s my good time, and my good life, despite what you think of me. I live my life, because I dare. I dare to show up when everyone else might hide their faces and hide their bodies in shame… I show up because I’m an a—hole, and I want to have a good time.

On the fact that her weight and looks had nothing to do with why she wasn’t liked by the other kids:

Why didn’t they like me? I was fat, yes. I had darker skin and weird hair, yes. But the truth is; this isn’t a story about bullying, or color, or weight. They hated me because… I was an a—hole! I was a snob. I thought I was better than the kids in my class, and I let them know it. That’s why they didn’t like me.

So when you ask me how I’m so confident, I know what you’re really asking me: How could someone like me be confident? Go ask Rihanna, a—hole.

… said Gabourey during a speech at the “Ms. Foundation for Women’s Gloria Awards and Gala” about confidence.

Gabourey Sidibe Responds to Weight Criticism: ‘I mos def cried about it on that private jet’

462081877_10 - Gabourey Sidibe Responds to Weight Criticism: 'I mos def cried about it on that private jet'

The full story from Daily Mail:

Gabourey Sidibe had the perfect answer for the haters who slammed her red carpet look at the Golden Globes on Sunday. The Precious star, who was nominated for a Globe and an Oscar in 2010 for her breakthrough role, wore a cream coloured Grecian style gown by Daniel Musto and MIchael Costello with a sequin detail at the bodice and a slit up the front for Sunday’s awards show.

The plus-sized star, who has stated she’s comfortable with her size, was targeted by mean-spirited tweets about her appearance. ‘Bye!!! She looks like a condom,’ one person wrote on Twitter. ‘Geez! She looks like the chubby ghost from Casper,’ chimed in another.

On Monday addressed haters who were critical of her ‘plus-size appearance’, by pointing out that she has a much more glamorous life than they do.

‘To people making mean comments about my GG pics, I mos def cried about it on that private jet on my way to my dream job last night. #JK’ Gabourey tweeted.

The self-assured American Horror Story: Coven actress, known for her sarcastic sense of humor, was obviously joking about comments making her cry.

‘When I was 21 or 22 I just decided that life wasn’t worth living if I wasn’t happy with myself so I just took all the steps that I could to figure out how to love myself and become confident,’ she said in 2012 at the Women In Entertainment Symposium.

However, she revealed at that same 2012 event that sometimes she does get her feelings hurt.

‘I get shaken a lot, especially being in this business,’ she said at the time. ‘A few weeks ago I was on vacation and I went into a CVS and as I’m paying I see a picture of myself on the cover of a magazine and they’re guesstimating what my weight is?’

But she has learned to shake off criticism.

‘I have to keep going and living my life, so when things like that upset me I have to find things that build my confidence back up.’

According to a report on Showbiz Spy last summer, Gabourey’s Precious co-star Monique offered her young friend some weight loss advice. ‘Gabby loves Mo’Nique and thinks it’s great that she’s losing weight, but she’s just not interested in dieting at this point in her life,’ a source told the site. ‘She says she knows she has to do something, but she’ll do it in her own time and on her own terms.’
