    You know she seems like a beautiful person. For her own sake I hope and pray that she does something about her weight.

  • CLaUD

    She’s soooooo fat. Should do something with it……………

  • yo sista

    She seems like such a sweetheart! Baby i hope you start eating healthy and try to get better… Wish you all the best.
    Btw so happy for Sandra, i see an Oscar coming…crossed-finguers

  • Anon

    Sorry for the loss, Gabby. Sandra was stiff competition. You are extremely talented and don’t let anyone tell you different. Good you got to meet JT.

  • shelly

    PS. You keep smiling, Gabourey. You are beautiful.

  • Bevi

    @CLaUD: OH SHUT UP_. all of you with the fat crap. SHE KNOWS SHES FAT. she is dealing with it on her own.. who knows what shes going through. she could be taking her own steps or waiting for help. mind your own business. and before you judge,. you better be the picture of health.

  • yo sista

    @Bevi: no one is judging her! She needs to get help. FACT! Being overweight is a problem, she’s unhealthy and should get help. I wish her all the best.
    Btw, yeah some people can be rude but there’s nothing you can do about it.

  • Prettigurlz

    I love her!!! She’s pretti…. P.s she’s nott fat she’s Just bigger than some ppl everyone comes in diff sizes lol!

  • Bevi

    @yo sista: What is calling her fat on every post gonna do? She knows she is fat. Move the hell on

  • xoxo

    who the hell cares?!?!? leave the woman alone..shes 26 and if she can make her own decisions…and even if you think she is overweight (yes lets use that word instead of fat since we are not 5 years old anymore) its none of your business and it doesnt make her any less of a good or bad person…she has a personality that you ppl are judging by her ridiculous. If she feels she needs help she will do so, but this is a picture of her at a special event where she was nominated with a very honorable award…lets see any of us make it there shall we??? this was a special night for her and if she were to read this you would have just ruined her night…congrats your bunch of arrogant jerks!

  • yo sista

    @Bevi: Well hold on a second! i did not call her “fat” so …………

  • Jenna

    She should really get some help to live a healthier lifestyle. I literally gasped when I saw this. :(

  • ++Logan++

    I don’t have anything against thin or large people, but Gabourey DOES need to loose some weight. She is surely overweight.

    This is not healthy and she does look uncomfortable.

  • joel

    She’s gonna die of a heart attack

  • ew

    you people are hypocrites. when someone is super skinny everyone comments “oh she is a freaking anorexic or bulimic” and no one says anything. but when this morbidly obese woman comes, when someone calls her obese and unhealthy we are being rude.. she is super obese, unhealthy.

  • brightside

    @xoxo: Obese, I think is the word here. Clinically obese and, if she doesn’t do something about it, which I sincerely pray she is, then she is at risk of becoming morbidly obese. I’m sure that her doctor has advised her she must lose weight if she is to stand any chance of having a normal, healthy life. At her size she has a significantly increased risk of dying young and that would be a terrible shame.

  • xax

    I bet her dresses cost FORTUNE to make lmao

  • Mayl

    @ew: The problem is that it is mentioned every second and there is no point of it. She no doubt knows her weight is a problem. Trust me.

  • Poop

    I wonder how many layers of fat you have to dig through to find her snatc h.

  • brightside

    @Mayl: But isn’t that the same problem that the skinny stars have, though. It’s mentioned every second. Oh they’re anorexic, they’re too skinny, it’s unhealthy to be a size 0. Honestly I’ve seen comments about celebs who are perfectly healthy being called anorexic just because they happen to be naturally slender. Those comments I can attribute to jealousy. The comments here seem to be based more on shock and concern.

    She is obese. Should get some help. It’s not healty. It’s not comfortable [for her]. And it’s not normal…

  • Loves It

    She looks Beautiful in this Dress.. Wish she would win an award though!

  • Orchid

    Now that she is in the public eye, it will be an incentive to lose weight. When she has lost what she needs to lose, she will need surgery to get rid of the loose skin. Then we will see a new Gabourey Sidibe.

  • http://- Paulina

    Humanity of course! But she’s obese…It’s a disease! What’s wrong about saying that loud? Same ppl have heart disease, some are diabetics…she is obese. It does not look good, it is not healthy, it couses many other diseases. Let’s stop promote obesity! I know, everyone is beautiful, individual, unique, special..but why not being healthy..I guess in her case it’s about diet and exercising…Just a small step and she can win a lot.

  • statingtheobvious

    For all the people saying she’s fat. Really? No kidding. I think she knows that and has lost weight and is continuing to lose weight. Why don’t you focus on that. This chick will probably accomplish more in her lifetime that any of you out there on the internet who are so obsessed with her weight, so seriously step off. “Obesity is a diseeeease…….

  • Dr NYC

    I’d rather be overweight and happy than slim and miserable!

  • brightside

    Obesity, defined as a body mass index (BMI, kg/m2) or percentage body fat in excess of some cut-off value, though clearly a threat to health and longevity, lacks a universal concomitant group of symptoms or signs and the impairment of function which characterize disease according to traditional definitions. While it might nevertheless be possible to achieve a social consensus that it is a disease despite its failure to fit traditional models of disease, the merits of such a goal are questionable. Labeling obesity a disease may be expedient but it is not a necessary step in a campaign to combat obesity and it may be interpreted as self-serving advocacy without a sound scientific basis.

    International Journal of Obesity.

    Obesity is not seen as a disease in scientific circles but it is a contributing factor in some diseases.

  • Amanda

    I’m sure she is a beautiful person but I can’t feel sorry for someone this overweight at the age of 26. It seems to me like it is just lack of motivation because surely she has all the means to lose weight but it doesn’t seem like she is trying. I wish her luck and hope she does something to help herself.

  • Charles

    @xax: Really? is that necessary? Do we always have to look at the negative on people and make terrible insults because of their weight? You all should just grow up!

  • Ann

    Yea she’s fat but who cares. She certaintly doesn’t. It’s life- no one makes it out alive any way. I think it’s nice to see women of different sizes on the red carpet. Because real American women come in all different shapes and sizes.

  • Ronda

    I love Gabby’s self confidence. She seems to be smiling and happy all the time and I love that! More power to her.

  • Lex

    I’ve said it before: I’m not comenting on her weight anymore, can’t do that every week and she won’t have a normal size overnight.
    I think it’s more interesting to look if she’s making any progress on the red carpet.
    She’s dressing much better (not sleeveless, better cut, better fabric) her skin looks less oily, her hair looks nicer,…
    I wouldn’t have put that ribbon pin on her boob though, but that’s the only negative thing I can come up with.

  • Ravynwolfe

    I noticed that Jared did not comment on her gown the designer etc. but he did to the this weight discrimination?
    I think she looks lovely. She posed for pictures as did all the other people but for some reason everyone thinks that gives them the right to put her body down. Just leave it. Her weight and what she does with it and to it is her own damn business. People dissing have to grow up and stop being so darn superficial.

  • Sorry, not healthy

    Skinny-anorexic or overweight-obese — neither state is healthy. We take models and other actresses to task for being ‘too skeletal’ – why not feel just as free to comment when someone is grossly overweight? She’s young and she’s shortening her life by being this much overweight. Those who care about her should encourage her to do something about it and soon.

  • Melissa

    She is wearing a perfect dress for her and looks great for her big night. Thanks for the pictures.

  • luisaonline

    it’s time to lose weight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Kira

    She’s beginning to get in touch with her innerself and lose all of her childhood baggage (whatever the cause of her extreme weight). Beautiful shade of blue on her and, also, the most complimentary photo so far! Weight unhealthy and she is going to be a stunner once the weight is shed at this young age.

    Overweight women are twice as vulnerable as men, and discrimination strikes much earlier in their lives, the report states.

    “This is a form of bias that remains very socially acceptable in our culture,” research scientist Rebecca Puhl, lead author of the study, said in a telephone interview.

    Puhl, who was trained as a clinical psychologist, and co-author Tatiana Andreyeva, studied data collected from 3,437 adults as part of a national survey conducted in 1995-1996. They have just updated the work in a disturbing paper showing that weight discrimination has accelerated through 2006.

    Puhl, who has been studying weight discrimination for nine years, said our culture has made it clear that it’s wrong to discriminate against someone because of race, color, creed, gender, age and so forth, but that it’s OK to show someone the door because he or she is fat.

    “We send a message to citizens in our culture that this is something that is tolerated,” she said. “We live in a culture where we obviously place a premium on fitness, and fitness has come to symbolize very important values in our culture, like hard work and discipline and ambition. Unfortunately, if a person is not thin, or is overweight or obese, then they must lack self-discipline, have poor willpower, etc., and as a result they get blamed and stigmatized.”

  • Amber

    Who cares if she is overweight? she could be the nicest person in the world and your calling her fat like a 5 year old,

  • seniorshookup

    I want to marry her!

  • Love Gabby

    I hope she loses weight just so she can keep getting roles in Hollywood. Yeah, I know that’s COMPLETELY selfish of me, but she’s a fantastic actress and if she lost weight there’d be a lot more opportunity for her.

  • brightside

    @sharon: From an employer’s perspective I would say that placing a premium on health and fitness is especially important. As an employer I wouldn’t want to hire people who are going to go sick a lot, for whatever health issues. It makes far more financial sense to hire those who are healthy. I do hope she loses weight and find the help she needs, but it’s not easy.

  • T Shirts

    @Dr NYC: I’m with you buddy!!!

  • rocky


    YOU ROCK!!!! Thanks for telling ‘-hit head’ off!!

  • nursesdate

    She is so amazin

  • California Dreamer

    Gabby seems like an absolutely lovely person inside and out.
    Still hoping she wins an award this year, she deserves it.
    You go, girl!

  • Jokergurl

    I don’t like the drapery on the dress, but she does seem like a sweetheart though. It’s cool that’s she’s getting this recognition in her first movie, that’s no small feat really. I’m pulling for Sandra Bullock to win though, just because I love Sandra.
