Gabbie Sidibe looks stunning! She posted a cute Instagram pic showing off her knees in a black dress after her major weight loss.


Actress Gabourey Sidibe revealed she had weight loss surgery two years ago.  The 35-year-old actress is looking amazing!

The "Precious" star took to Instagram to show off her stunning new figure in a short black dress. The cute outfit showed off her "thick" knees and made the actress look much younger.


Fans loved the look and flooded her comments section with love and support. Even the senior entertainment editor of Nylon Magazine, Sesali Bowen, took a second to applaud the picture writing:

"Young at heart, old at knees is my summer vibe."


Gabourey has struggled with her weight her whole life. 

Gabourey openly shares her struggles with eating disorders and failed diets. In an interview with Nylon she once said:

"And yeah, I have been struggling with weight my entire life. I realize that as long as I have a body, it will be a struggle."


Hollywood is brutal about body image.

Gabourey's acting career is relatively extensive. She was even nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress for "Precious."

Gabourey had laparscopic bariatric surgery.

However, the actress reportedly realized her size was holding her back. She said she once overheard a Hollywood executive say that she was too big to be on a magazine cover.

Eventually, she decided she had to do something about her weight. The stunning actress opted to undergo a laparscopic bariatric surgery.

The minimally invasive procedure has several different varieties and is designed for people who are obese. The results after the surgery are rapid.



The Empire star revealed she made the decision to get the surgery after she and her brother were diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. She told People:

"I just didn't want to worry. I truly didn't want to worry about all the effects that go along with diabetes. I genuinely (would) worry all the time about losing my

Controversial Co-star

Besides her weight loss, Gabby was caught in controversy earlier this year when she adamantly defended her co-star Jussie Smollet during his alleged attack. However, she later deleted her social media post defending him.
