Gabourey Sidibe’s Weight Loss Has Her Loving Her Figure
Actress Gabourey Sidibe ignited weight-loss speculation with an August selfie where she was noticeably thinner than before. Confirmation came in May when Sidibe, who has always struggled with her body image, revealed she went under the knife for laparoscopic bariatric surgery last year.
“My surgeon said they’d cut my stomach in half,” she wrote in her memoir, “This Is Just My Face: Try Not to Scare.” “The surgery wasn’t the easy way out. I wasn’t cheating by getting it done. I wouldn’t have been able to lose as much as I’ve lost without it.”
