Gabourey Sidibe Opens Up About Struggling With an Eating Disorder

Gabourey Sidibe is opening up battling an eating disorder and depression.

The 37-year old American Horror Story star shared her experience in a sneak peek for an upcoming episode of Taraji P. Henson‘s Facebook Watch series, Peace of Mind with Taraji.

Gabourey told her Empire co-star, “It wasn’t even about other people. It was about me surviving the day. I was so embarrassed and I hated crying so much. I hated it.”

She added that compliments about her weight loss at the time further fueled her eating disorder. The actress said she now realizes that bulimia was a “self defense mechanism.”

“That’s what bulimia was for me. It wasn’t about losing weight. It wasn’t about controlling my appetite,” Gabourey explained. “It truly was about how it stopped me from crying.”

She continued, “I was getting worse,” she says. “Being depressed is one thing. If you add an eating disorder to that, that’s a whole other monster that you have to fight.”

Fans can watch Gabourey‘s full interview with Taraji on January 25 on Facebook Watch.

Gabourey Sidibe Says Hollywood Didn't Give Her Same Opportunities as Anna Kendrick After They Were Oscar-Nominated in Same Year

It has been ten years since Gabourey Sidibe was nominated for an Oscar for her debut performance in Precious and she’s opening up about her career over the last decade.

The 37-year-old actress received a Best Actress nomination at the 2010 Oscars when she was just 26. In the same year, Anna Kendrick was a relative newcomer when she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for Up in the Air.

“I’ve heard the idea that I’m just lucky before,” Gabby said in an interview with Collider. “I’ve heard that. I’m an extremely unlucky person, actually. I work really, really hard though. And no, the Hollywood seas didn’t part for me in the same way that it might have for maybe Anna Kendrick who was nominated for the first time that year as well, who then went on to star in films and television and the whole thing. The seas did not part that same way for me and I assume that there are a few factors that made that so, but I am still working 10 years later.”

She added, “I’m still working 12 years after having filmed [Precious]. I have agency. I am comfortable with who I am. I know my voice. I know what I want to say to the world. I know what I want to give to the world and what I want to give to myself. I know my artistry. And so, you know, starring in things or being on the covers of magazines, all of these things that say that I’ve ‘made it,’ everything that solidifies my position on the A-list, whatever that means, doesn’t actually mean anything to my self-worth and my sense of artistry.”

Gabby‘s new movie Antebellum is now streaming on PVOD. Most of her credits over the last decade have been on television with shows like American Horror Story, Empire, and The Big C.

Gabby actually presented alongside Anna at the Oscars in 2014. You can see those photos in the gallery.

Janelle Monae Glams Up for Drive-In Premiere of 'Antebellum' at LA's The Grove!

Janelle Monae walks the carpet while attending the drive-in premiere of her new movie Antebellum on Monday night (September 14) at The Grove in Los Angeles.

The cast of the movie stepped out for a socially distanced rooftop cinematic experience ahead of the film’s PVOD premiere this weekend.

Joining Janelle at the event were co-stars Gabourey Sidibe, Jena Malone, Jack Huston, Kiersey Clemons, Achok Majak, Lily Cowles, and London Boyce, as well as filmmakers Gerard Bush and Christopher Renz.

Antebellum will premiere as a Premium On-Demand release on all platforms on September 18. The movie was originally going to debut in theaters earlier this year, but Lionsgate decided that it was important to release the film as soon as possible because of the film’s timely themes.

In Antebellum, successful author Veronica Henley (Monae) finds herself trapped in a horrifying reality that forces her to confront the past, present and future – before it’s too late.

FYI: Janelle is wearing an Elie Saab gown and a Carolina Santo Domingo clutch.
