    I bet Howard Stern is looking stupid because he said that Gabourey Sidibe would not be able to get work in Hollywood because of how she looks but she have proved him wrong. Not only she was nominated for an Oscar for Precious, which was her first movie. She also starred in a hit TV show The Bic C and have done three movies after Precious. And her weight loss looks great.
