Gabourey Sidibe: If I Won $20 Million...

Gabourey Sidibe: If I Won $20 Million...

Gabourey Sidibe chats on the phone as she walks through New York City on Friday (July 23).

The 27-year-old Academy Award nominee later pulled out an umbrella and braved the rain during an afternoon downpour!

Recently, Gabby has been answering fans’ questions on her official Facebook page. One fan asked what Gab would do if she won $20 million in the lottery.

“Goodness! $20 Million sounds really good right about now,” Gabby shared. “I’d love to blow it all on a weekend in Las Vegas but I’ll probably do something smart and buy a bunch of condos to rent out ….property and what not…..and I’d give 5 Million to my mother and father to split….No questions asked.”

    I could make a cheap food joke but I won’t.

  • John Hopkirk

    She needs more than an umbrella to protect her rotund figure from the rain.

  • Sam

    Oh. My. GOD!!!!!!

  • Sean

    I personally think that thisis lady is a walking heart attack waiting to happen.

  • Blahzae

    Shes gotten so big you cant even see her Iphone o.0 in her hand
    Wow …
    Im all for people of different sizes
    but this is a unhealthy level and she clearly in denial of it and doesnt want to change.
    I hope she gets healthy.
    Im not saying skinny .
    Im saying healthy like Queen Latifah. A big beautiful woman that works out and can kick your @ss ;p Nothing wrong with that…. but this what Gabby is doing is just well… sad v.v

  • Kathryn

    What the on earth is wrong with you people? This is a person we are talking about! She’s out there making a life for herself and doing a fine job at that. #4′s comment “No joke. I dry heaved right now.” Come on, really? She is an amazing actress and she deserves respect whether she’s a size 2 or a size 24. Put your targets in the right direction.

  • brandon

    If she won that much money, she could hire a personal trainer and get some lypo. Not hating, but being that morbidly obese is disgusting.

  • KellStar

    People talk as if she doesn’t know she’s big. I see she’s lost some weight though which is great!

  • HMM

    Go gabby go, stay positive always girl.

  • Anthony

    I wouldn’t cut down on someone because of there weight or anything but this is a huge health risk and should be taken seriously. Why do people say she should be embraced for being different?? She’s really not, a large chunk of Americans are obese and it is very dangerous to their health. On a side note after seeing her attitude in interviews and towards fans it was enough to make me really dislike this girl.

  • Slig

    Omg fatty walk just walk crazy

  • Marcus

    She could use that 20 million dollars to buy a jogging machine.

  • Jesse

    @Marcus: jogging machine lol dont you mean a treadmill :)

  • Alison

    Notice how there is no mention of donating to charity!

    And yes, being HIDEOUSly obese definitely sends out the wrong message to children and teens. It is NOT ok to look like this!

  • Orchid

    It’s obvious she hasn’t started her diet to lose weight.

  • Blahzae

    I didnt even think of that.. no mention of charity donations at all.

    I guess that whole RED campaign thing was just for press with her then.. back in May . well that is a let down is a great cause and saves peoples lives.


    I think she is awesome and will lose weight when it feels right. Frankly, I thhink she lost some weight, so it is on her list! She was way bigger in precious.

    And I am happy to see her out and about. She is not letting anything keep her down! Go Gabby!!

  • Caroline

    I really think she lost weight. She looked healthier. Good !

    Ok we made our comments on the superficial side. Let’s focus on her career cause she’s really good !

  • Kaz

    Omg,she needs 24 hour sport yeah

  • Annie

    When an umbrella is too small for you you know it’s time to get serious about losing weight!

  • Courtney

    Some of you are making it sound like she’s the first overweight actress to be nominated for an oscar and particularly the best actress oscar she’s not. does the name Kathy Bates ring a bell won best actress in 1991 at the age of 42 for her role in the Stephen King Adaptation Misery. granted she wasn’t the oldest of the five nominees that night Joanne Woodward was at age 61 and having won on her first nomination 33 years earlier aged 28 granted her original win was bittersweet because of personal tragedy of losing a baby.

  • DarkEmpress

    I hope she gets some help. Denial is killing her.

  • lina

    Wow she has LOST weight!!! Her necj and face is not as swollen as before, and her belly is smaller. She has lost weight.

  • Brightside

    Really?….you think?….It’s kind of hard to tell!
    But I hope you’re right : )
