Award-winning actress Gabby Sidibe reveals her new silhouette in video


Gabourey Sidibe is one of the most outspoken and charismatic actresses of her generation, and she made her acting debut in Precious, for which the actress won the 2009 Academy Award for Best Actress.

Sidibe has triumphed in Hollywood despite her unconventional figure type, and her fierce determination to remain true to herself. In 2007 Sidibe was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and opted to undergo laparoscopic bariatric surgery in order to control her disease.

This is a procedure in which the size of the stomach is restricted by a gastric band, and the absorption of food in the digestive system is drastically reduced.

As a result, she has lost a considerable amount of weight, which is clearly visible in a clip she posted on Instagram.


“If I could just get the world to see me the way I see myself, would my body still be a thing you walked away thinking about?”

The fans reacted enthusiastically to her changed figure, and though Sidibe admits their compliments are well-meant, she explains that what motivated her surgery was not a question of body image.


She has made changes in her life in order to improve her health. In her video the star is wearing a grey Minnie Mouse T-shirt looks much thinner.

She is fanning herself with an oversized fan which she flicks open to read and fan the words “Power Bottom”


The star speaks about her battle with diabetes, and her fight to improve her health which motivated her weight-loss.


She has written and published her memoir “This Is Just My Face: Try Not to Stare” and in it she describes her unconventional career, and leap to stardom.

In her book, she addresses several delicate topics that have shaped her life. She discusses fashion, race, and weight. In her inimitable straightforward way, Sidibe expresses her passionate belief that self-acceptance is the key to happiness.
