Gabourey Sidibe Wants To Lose Weight, Might Have Something To Do With Everyone Criticizing Her Body

Gabourey Sidibe Wants To Lose Weight, Might Have Something To Do With Everyone Criticizing Her Body-photo

The mother of Precious star Gabourey Sidibe reveals that her daughter wants to lose weight, but also knows that a big reason she got her star-making role in Precious is because she is overweight. With critics like Howard Stern publicly mocking Sidibe for having an "unhealthy" body, it is no wonder that the young Sidibe would start to feel uncomfortable in her bigger body. However, Sidibe's mother says that just because her daughter is fat it doesn't mean that she is necessarily unhealthy (or at least no less healthy than all those actresses in Hollywood who eat less than 300 calories a day to stay rail-thin). Sidibe's mom reveals that heftiness runs in the family and that fatness "works in different ways for different folks."

In true adorable, supportive mom fashion, Sidibe's mother says that she will always be proud of her daughter no matter what and that there are "different acting roles [out there] for all sorts of people." Sure, Sidibe may not be taking over roles for Jessica Alba, but she does already have an Oscar nomination under her belt.

    She doesn't need to lose weight. What about when a caster needs a hefty role? online weight loss

    Comeon! She is a talented and pretty girl. If she doesn't lose weight and take care of herself she won't be able to continue her dream. Just because there are skinny actresses eating only 300 calories and not being healthy, doesn't justify her not taking care of herself!
