Gabourey Gabby Sidibe A Diva?
Gabourey Gabby Sidibe A Diva? – Last year, Gabourey Sidibe went from a Harlem college student to an Oscar nominated actress after she played the role of Precious . The movie followed Jones as she lived through a horribly abusive life with her mother, and the problems she experienced as a teen mother as well.
In a recent report that was published in The Washington Post, it appears that her new success may have gone to her head. The report was written by columnist Jonathan Capehart, who approached Sidibe last weekend at the White House Correspondents dinner in Washington. He states that Sidibe may not be as kind as once originally imagined.
“I was thrilled to spot her at a table laughing uproariously with the man sitting to her right. ‘I know you’re having a good time and I’m sorry to interrupt,’ I began. My next sentence didn’t come out because Sidibe shouted over the din, ‘Yeah, come back in five minutes!’,” Capehart wrote in his column. “Thinking she was joking, I laughed and pretended to walk away. When I noticed that the look in her eyes meant she was serious, I walked back to her and said, ‘I just wanted to congratulate you on your nomination. I thought your performance was spectacular. I even wrote a column about it.’ After wishing her good luck, I rejoined my friends.”
Several other columnists have also reported that Sidibe was less than hospitable during the dinner as well. One report stated that a fan was turned down for a picture with Sidibe while she was sitting in Washington’s Reagan National Airport waiting for a flight.
