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

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!

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.

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!!

She looks like a huge chocolate cake.

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.

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

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.

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


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.

…………………………I like the dress! :)

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?

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.

@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.

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

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.

not healthy at all.

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

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


Oh yeah. She’s wasting away to nothing.

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!
