The popular and talented black actress, Gabourey Sidibe cried out that scriptwriters labeled her as hippo and elephant in their scripts.
The actress comes in front of media and seemed unhappy with scriptwriters. She clarified that people aren’t that much obsessed by her weight in real life. She added that she gets a lot of scripts and offers but almost every writer illuminated her chunky parts of body in their scripts.
Few of her words are mention as below:
‘Someone wrote a script with me in mind and the first time someone other than my character was talking about my character they say ‘this hippo’ or ‘this elephant’. And I’m like, Are you serious? You wrote something for me and you’re calling me a hippo and all of the animals.’
She said besides everything her life was changed when doctors informed her that she is patient of Type 2 diabetes. She added that she wasn’t worried about all the side effects of such diseases but the thing that seems horrible was, ‘I genuinely [would] worry all the time about losing my toes.’
She admitted that the surgery has given her a newfound confidence. She seemed satisfied with her new look.
