33-year-old ‘Precious’ actress Gabourey Sidibe DOES NOT like scripts that point out her weight or her weight loss!

She said at a SXSW panel this past weekend by Glamour Magazine: “As a woman in a different body, I get a lot of scripts and offers where someone hast to make mention of my body immediately. 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.’ This is my body. This has been my body my entire life and in my life my friends and my colleagues are not constantly talking about my body. But in most of my roles somebody has to make mention of it.”

Sidibe said that her favorite roles to date have been her roles on ‘Difficult People’ and ‘EMPIRE’ because they do no mention of her weight. The actress said: “They are my favorite jobs because it is most like real life. On ‘Difficult People’ my character has a husband and it’s super horny for her and no one says anything about my body. And on ‘Empire,’ I had a sex scene — well, it wasn’t really a sex scene, it was a makeout scene, everyone chill — and it spawned all of these news articles and all of these memes and launched a hashtag called #myfatsexstory only because it was my body against somebody else’s body and we treated in on primetime television like any other love scene between two people.”
