Fans threw in their support on the look with complimentary emojis, and some wrote how stunning she'd always looked even as a younger lady. The onscreen diva is always expressive when it comes to her looks. She's granted interviews and has authored a memoir titled "This Is Just My Face," to talk about her weight struggles.

In 2017, after she underwent weight-loss surgery, the then 33-year-old explained that she consistently dealt with bullying due to her weight. When she was diagnosed with diabetes, she decided that it was time to deal with her health, which involved weight loss. The "Empire" star first tried to shed some weight using exercise, she said:

"It took a long time time to do the surgery because I really was trying to lose weight...So I'm glad that I finally realized that the surgery wasn't the easy way out...I wasn't cheating..."

Reportedly, Sidibe's weight loss marked a new beginning of healthy habits and congratulatory remarks. As for the comments, she shared how unwelcoming she views them. According to her, complimenting her decision to shed weight appears "annoying."

One significant change that didn't seem annoying was finding her Mr. Right. Two years after stating that she is open to be in a relationship with an ambitious man, Brandon Frankel walked into her life.
