Gabourey Sidibe: Blue Boots Made For Walkin'!

Gabourey Sidibe: Blue Boots Made For Walkin'!

Precious actress Gabourey Sidibe rocks blue boots while stopping off for some shopping at Victorinox and then eating at Balthazar in the concrete jungle of New York City on Sunday (March 14).

The 26-year-old actress was recently slammed by radio shock jock Howard Stern in which he claimed that Gabby‘s wouldn’t have an acting career in the future because of her weight. Gabby‘s mom fired back, saying, “Get a life. He can see, you can see, I can see Gabby is a big girl. She’s a big woman, so what’s wrong with that? She’s not like everyone else in the world. I don’t see him giving jobs out to anybody, so why should we care what he says? He might not hire her, but someone else will!”

    She seems severely obese and that’s not good. Yes, she has great inner beauty and a great self esteem but she needs to lose weight, not to the point of being really thin. I think she could lose at least 50 lbs.

    They criticize her weight because it’s unhealthy.
    This is one good reason for Gabby to work towards getting her weight under control:

    I don’t think Gabby is this stupid…but the woman in the article can’t even walk far because of her weight.

    I love her. I think she’s a wonderful actress. Sadly, the gatekeepers of media are strict…i fear she might be typecasted. She shouldnt be though! I hope she isn’t.

    Weight is such a big issue in our culture. And cultural standard of beauty are learned early by children. They understand society’s evaluation of worth based on their physical attractiveness as early as preschool. If you examine traditional literature of childhood, many of the age-old stories center around physical attractiveness. Consider these examples: “The Ugly Duckling”, “Dumbo”, wicked stepsisters from “Cinderella”, and evil queen from “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”. When “dull” child failed to noticed that the ugly do not become cheerleaders, ugly seldom star in movies, ugly have fewer friends, they can reasonably conclude ugly are less desirable. Not only do we Americans set narrow standard of beauty and then insult and hurt those who fall outside of the standards, but out adult society functions to discriminate children who are not attractive. It is then of no surprise that children who feel they are not considered attractive or desirable develop low self-esteems. And many adults, today, also have a narrow view of beauty. Howard Stern develop contribution to his concept of beauty through the gatekeepers of the media… i can’t blame him. it’s UGLY that’s running these casting offices

    im not hating on homegirl but she truly needs to lose a couple of pounds for only health concerns, but all negative comments asides everyone aware she is a good actress so she should at least realize most are not judging her they just stating the “Real world facts”.

    I like her too.

    She might not be ideal and her weight might be a health issue, but she represents those of us who ever felt awkward, or not socially accepted. Regardless if it’s because of weight, low self-esteem, depression, circumstances, (or any of that stuff).

    You go girl!

    feel that i have to say something about her weight
    you can all say that she seems sweet or if she is happy let her be
    im tellng you that deep down.. she is not happy
    5 years ago i weighed as much as she did.
    it was horrible.. you are tired all of the time..at the end of the day your back and legs ache.. you are aways sweaty
    its hard to find clothes that are big enough to fit you
    you go out with all your firends and you are the only big one
    that no guy will ever hit on
    i was diagnosed with type 2 diabeties
    i was told that if i didnt lose weight i wouldnt see 40
    you can be pc all you want
    she is not healthy and not happy
    no one that big is happy deep down
    when you truly love yourself and y our body
    you dont treat it like sh&t by shoving unhealthy crap into it
    to the point where it starts to break down
    she will die very young
    it will be a stroke, heart attack or complications from diabeties
    open your eyes!!!!
    truly happy, confident people who love themselves are not obese!!!!
    in the same way that
    happy people dont exist on one apple a day and exercise for 3 hours to work it off
    both are eating disorders
    undereating and over eating!!

    happy girl Says:

    Two separate issues going on here: 1) Howard should not insult any young girl to the degree he insulted her. Ever look at him? If he wanted to help her, why not just call her in private? Why start a rant that was so crude? But the other is issue is #2: Gabby’s mom should be more involved in her daughter’s life and get her to be a healthier big girl. I wonder what in Gabby’s private life has led to this weight? She may have been born that way but there are many things a parent can do, besides self esteem building, to make sure one’s daughter does not end up at a dangerous weight (skinny or fat). But at the end, Gabby has made something of herself so good for her to have the courage. Maybe she can use this platform to teach girls about the path to a healthier big body. Maybe she will do that one day. We hope.

    i can’t get enough of her, i was sorta over all the red carpet/award show pics of her but she rocks the candids.
    we haven’t watched someone like this before, really, and i think she’s super interesting.

    Nice for the mother to stand up for her daughter. Who gives a damn what that p.o.r.n.o loving pervert has to say…he’s the shallowest of all people in the media. I pray to God that he does not become the next AI judge.

    sarafina Says:

    I too think Gabby is awesome and her personality is so real and untouched. Yes her weight could lead to health problems, but you take a look at those skinny actresses and i mean skinny there wieght can lead to health problems too, and all of them have low self esteem.
    Put Gabby up against them her self esteem is way up there, i truly wish her all the best and if she does lose weight FOR HEALTH REASONS then good for her. But i do hope she continues to be HERSELF and keeps it REAL.

    Gabby Supporter Says:

    I love Gabby! She is sooo talented and beautiful. I would go and see her in any movie she stars in. I also abhor Howard Stern and if he joins AI- it will go down the drain.

    She is not big, she is Huuuuuge.. I don’t care what HS says about her acting career.. it’s just not good for her health….

    Pink Bunny Says:

    @shaleen: 50lbs?! Please, she should lose AT LEAST 150lbs. She is morbidly obese and looks disgusting; it is not healthy and not attractrive. She seems like a nice person, but she is fat. On the other hand: what`s with calling Jessica Simpson fat (when she isn`t) yet so many people comment that Sidibe is beautiful. Double standards? Hypocrites? Jealous of blond bombshell Jessica?

    Sara Says:

    I like her too, but she needs to lose weight or she’ll die. Its as simple as that. Have you ever heard of a person who is over 300 lbs living a long life? No.

    GG Says:

    Ok, Ewwww. That is just unhealthy. Inner beauty or not, she really needs to lose weight.

    I have nothing against her but I am pissed that models are criticized for being to thin when this is just as, if not more, unhealthy.

    @janelle:
    inner beauty is good but when you are that overweight it becomes a life or death situation. my cousin died for weighing just a little bit over that… Garbourey

    SW Says:

    @Pink Bunny: I’ll tell you what it is. Jessica Simpson was an anorexic starlet who put on some weight and started to look like a NORMAL woman should – how dare she! So people felt it was okay to diss and insult her for getting “fat”. Sibide however is grotesquely obese, and suddenly PC-ness kicks in and people remember that they are not supposed to dump on someone who is fat, so instead that overdo it and start gushing about how “beautiful” she is even though deep down they’re all grossed out by her looks. Well, there surely are beautiful “big” people or those who at least look appealing or attractive still (I don’t see anybody dumping on Queen Latifah for instance), but Sibide is not one of them. I’m sure she is a lovely person and very talented, but she should really lose at least a big portion of her weight, if only for health reasons.
    Howard Stern, no matter how controversial he might be, is right – at this weight, she won’t have much of a Hollywood career, if any at all. If she’s really really lucky, she will be relegated to the role of the comedic sidekick of the lead female character. Which would be sad, because this way she would never really be able to realize her potential.

    baksuz Says:

    wow, how fat is that??? yeah all that sh*t about inner beauty is cool,but only for the fat girls… there is not a worse thing that you can say to a girl than you are so beautiful on the inside. that usually means that she is extremely ugly, hard to look at or fat as this person.
    i am so sorry for her and i hope that she will lose some of her weight because this is very ugly and so unhealthy. this is not like she has a few pounds more, she should lose more than a half of her weight to just look normal. i know that she will never look good and have a beautiful body, but what now, she should just sit on her big ass and gain more weight???

    emmy jay Says:

    Inner beauty is not going to get her any more roles, unless they need a big black woman.

    She typecast herself by staying fat.

    Even Halle Berry has said that it is hard to find roles for black women, and look at her…..

    Howard Stern uses the shock factor and makes his living by busting on other people, so no surprise there.

    Liz Says:

    @kez: You’re completely right. She is a bad example, no doubt about that. Obesity is an important issue, that kills people! So NO, being obese is NOT “beautiful”, just like having only skin on your bones is not beautiful. She should get some help.

    hmm Says:

    So disgusting!
    Looking at her makes me not want to eat.
    She’s young too so I’m guessing her parents didn’t do anything to try and raise her right and keep her at a healthy weight. Shame!
