Gabourey Sidibe speaks onstage during The 2018 MAKERS Conference at Hollywood Palladium on February 5, 2018 in Los Angeles, California. For Gabourey Sidibe, getting dressed for red carpets and awards shows is really hard when she knows that she’ll be made fun of because of her weight. If I wear red, a pitcher of Kool Aid,” she admitted during a monologue at The 2018 MAKERS Conference on Monday evening.
Gabourey Sidibe’s Lane Bryant campaign was launched last month, and apparently it still hasn’t hit her. The award-winning actress took a snap whilst passing a subway poster and expressed how thrilled she was to see herself as one of the faces of the retailer’s new campaign, #ThisBody Is Made to Shine. I'm STILL not over this. Who knows how many subway posters I walked by hoping to one day feel as beautiful as the faces I passed. pic.twitter.com/IMiER9MGoS
