    She really needs to lose weight. It’s not good for your health to be that size.

  • Dominic

    I’m sorry but when someone is this big all I can think about is their weight. I can’t really focus on anything else. I mean, look at her legs!

  • http://j ivanka


  • Brightside

    She’s shortening her life by years being this weight…she’ll have a coronary in her early forties if she doesn’t start to do something about it now.

  • Yolanda

    OINK OINK!!!!!

  • KCC

    I really think this girl is a good actress, and she seems like a nice girl…but honestly she needs to LOSE weight…this is horrible, and cannot be healthy!! She needs to get help!!

  • Vinny

    She looks like a huge chocolate cake.

  • pizza



  • Sadie

    I hope she looses weight just because of he health. She is talented and it would be a waste if she died because of a early heart attack or something else like that.

  • JC


  • bkay

    @Vinny: omg, nooooo!!! she doesn’t look attractive at all
    sorry to say((

  • taiwan

    This young woman really needs to loose some weight. Normally I am the last person to judge anyone on appearance, I think its cruel and unfair. We have a responsibility to our own bodies, and people have to decide how they want to live. Its not our right to decide for them. However, she really is a big, big girl. Maybe she “feels” ok now, but believe me it is only a matter of time before health problems arise. I hear she did a great job in Precious. She should be celebrated for that of course, but its a sad fact her roles will be limited if she doesnt shed some weight. And I am really sorry but those colors are not flattering on her whatsoever.

  • JC

    I heard she just got cast in the Moby Dick remake. She’ll play the whale.

  • Sadie


    Just curious, bashing on celebrities on this site.. does it help your self esteem? You have clearly nothing smart to say about anything, only stupid childish comments on every post. Newsflash: You are not funny.

  • Jude

    …………………………I like the dress! :)

  • JC

    That’s nice. Do you do anything except hunt for my posts so you can give them a thumbs down? Is this woman not really disgustingly fat, or am I just seeing things?

  • Arianna

    The first to go will be her legs. It really stresses the blood vessels and veins to have to hold up that much weight. The knees get arthritis also which will end up as a knee replacement, a painful operation to recover from.

  • Alaia

    @taiwan: Well said, but I think what it all boils down to is…it’s her decision. It’s her life. It’s kind of annoying seeing people always saying the same thing.

  • nakedoldjennifer

    I really like her as an actor, her simile and laugh
    She needs to lose weight because it takes so much attention away from her talent, GS is not ugly some of you are just mean and crazy

  • Ruth

    I agree that she is facing a lot of health problems if she doesn’t lose weight. It’s not a qustion of being stick thin but Gabourey is a very talented actress and if she wants to succeed in her chosen profession, then she needs to stay healthy. Obesity is not healthy for anyone.

  • MAC

    not healthy at all.

  • slimx

    it looks like she has lost a little..she seemed bigger than this

  • rex

    She joined a gym….lay off. Shes clearly smaller too- look at her stomach.

  • JC


    Oh yeah. She’s wasting away to nothing.

  • bar jolie gaga

    Too young for this weight. Hope Hollywood isn’t telling it is ok to be like this and that she listens to some medical advice and start working on living longer. This weight is not good for anyone at any age, certainly not hers. But sometimes, Hollywood starts playing with a young starlet’s head and make her think everything she does is ok. Gabby: don’t listen to the enablers. You can do it! Losing weight will be awesome for you and your life!

  • nata

    She needs to lose weight. She does seem like a very likable girl, but she is only 26 and that size is inexcusable! That is not healthy.

  • louise

    it’s scary that she is that large at such a young age. i sincerely hope she changes her lifestyle and loses some weight because it is not healthy to be that size.
    we often bash size 0 celebs for their weight but everybody seems to be less forthcoming about celebrities suffering from obesity. both ends of the spectrum (extremely underweight&extremely overweight) are seriously unhealthy

  • Masoud


  • kara

    If I forget all the nasty comment I could do about her unhealthy weight, I think a longer dress and high heels would have been better. She has a pretty face, sad that her body is so unhealthy.

  • status quo

    Gaby, honey, this isn’t good. You need to lose weight in a major way, this can’t be healthy. Look at Queen Latifa. She is the epitome of BIG, SEXY and HEALTHY. You are screaming insulin resistance (Type II Diabetes), hypertension, renal failure, and increased risk for heart disease. So talented, but at this rate she isn’t going to live to be 40. This makes me so sad. Beautiful skin by the way.

  • megan

    She has a Beautiful face and a gorgeous smile :)

  • Ken

    She seems to be a sweet inpressionable girl and she is getting fed that she is beautiful, even with all the weight. Someone needs to wake her up and impress upon her that she could very well have a short life if she does not shed the weight. Hope someone does it soon.

  • Gina

    How could she possibly think that it’s OK to wear a short skirt and show your legs when you’re so overweight??? Did she actually look in the mirror before leaving the house and think “yeah, I’m looking good in this skirt!” Jeez….

  • T-boy
    Her feet are frickin’ HUGE! I don’t think I’ve ever seen such big feet on any woman before!
    She has the smallest eyes, too.

  • T-boy
    This pic shows her giant feet even better! Just look at those things…like giant lumps!

  • The Doctor Is In

    @JC: Don’t you think Sadie sounds like a fat girl’s name?

    Sidibe needs to have bariatric surgery immediately — no diets, no cleansing…just straight to the nearest surgeon for gastric bypass. Given her size, it will take her a year or more to get to a healthy weight, but she’ll live about 50 years longer than she’s setting herself up to live now.

  • mr mister

    Imagine her in the shower!
    *runs away screaming*

  • just sayin’
  • Vinny

    I didnt mean she was attractive LOL!! Thats just the first thing I thought of

  • Traci

    I gotta give it to her, the girl more confidence than someone half her size. I love that about her!

  • http://tabbigazelle tahbeebbe

    im all for loving the way you look and being proud of it but please do not embarrass urself and thats what she’s doing. i know that she could have worn leggings or jeans or something.
    she shouldnt have done that.

  • lmao


    I hope you learn the difference between “loose” and “lose”

  • Matt

    nice arms, hot legs.. yeah, right!!! :/

  • Jo


  • OinkOink

    goodness grief!

    what a porker in a dress!

  • thats_right

    she needs to lose weight, and no she is not likable at all, she has an attitude problem, really moody girl, she only smiles to show her fakeness when it’s needed. And whoever says she looks great that means you don’t want the best for her such as health wise, she better lose weight its not a choice anymore for her, should be MUST in her case.

  • Bonie

    You are such a BITCH!
    Yes, she needs to lose weight, but she can figure out what she needs to do on her own. You are probably a loner and a sad person in order to make such hurtful remarks. Unfortunately, I fell as low as you did because I have just called you a *****. Poor soul…

  • Jim

    Wow wat a great jerking my d*i* by seeing her sexy legs

  • meji

    But I think she HAS lost weight. She doesn’t look as large as she did. She WAS enormous and it’s going to take a while to get down to Latifah size.

  • Sadie

    @The Doctor Is In:

    LOL JC ? “Fat girl name” … really?
    Cant make up something more “hurtful”?
    You need to make up more names here to bash on me?
    You are probably all these trolls in here.
    Feeling threatened because nobody likes you here?
    Get a life. I think everybody here knows that you’re an ass, and don’t even bother to read what you have to say. I’m not going to ever. ever. ever go low as you. Have a nice life.
