So I’ve had a mild obsession with Gabby Sidibe since ‘Precious’ had it’s run in awards season a couple years back. I think it was her Oscar red carpet moment when she said “I’d hit that” to Gerard Butler – which turned into an awkward almost-threesome with Billy Bush. There is also the fact that she a fabulous plus size lady with an incredible sense of humor and is well received by the public, which is a nice change. Anyway! I’ve had a couple of missed connections with Gabourey Sidibe at different events like the ‘Sex and the City 2’ premiere at Radio City Music Hall and a screening of ‘The Help’ at the Director’s Guild of America theater, so it was nice to finally be able to meet with her at the ‘Tower Heist’ premiere and get a quick picture. She was just as sassy as I hoped she would be, too!
Gabby is in ‘Tower Heist’ with Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy, Matthew Broderick, and Casey Affleck. This looks pretty funny, you should check it out when it hits theaters this Friday!
