It looks likes she has come down a bit on the weight. She has such a pretty face.

@I n F a m o u s l y C o o l:

She is not going to disappear. In a world where Kim K, Nicole Richie and the jersey girls are famous, Sidibe will succeed. Probably not in movies but on tv and internet. She has a great personality and talent.

Roles hard to come by @ 02/27/2010 at 12:00 pm

But how many roles are there in Hollywood for an extremely obese actress? VERY, very few. Her body size is just as extreme as someone who’s obviously anorexic. NEITHER extreme is healthy or ‘normal.’ Unfortunately though since being ‘thin’ is considered a virtue in Hollywood, a ‘rail-thin’ actress is more likely to find work than someone like Gabourey regardless of her talent. Not fair maybe, but it’s true just the same.

How this Gabby girl ever made it to an Oscar nomination is beyond me. She is no actress by any stretch of the imagination. I counted three expressions she was able to convey: disgruntled, crying, laughing and even those not very well, in a face that is so fat that it almost totally inhibits the movement of facial muscles. Just because on one level we empathize with the character she played does not mean that her performance is worthy of praise.
It’s ironic that Gabby’s morbid obesity should make her famous at a time when more than half of America’s population gorges itself into an early grave. So she is no role model in this respect either. I think there is evidence that she actually is a very pretty woman under all this excessive weight, but she may not live long enough for us to find out if she doesn’t do something about her obesity sometime soon.

I am not sure which one looks worst! That Gabby girl is a horrible actress. I can not wait till she goes away. She is getting more attention then she ever deserved. I could have done a better job ion that role.
