And Gabourey Sidibe, the striking plus-size Oscar-nominated star of Precious, makes her Hollywood leap as a feisty Jamaican chambermaid who gets in on the heist action. (The girl’s got mad safecracking skills.) I don’t know why Ratner and cinematographer Dante Spinotti felt compelled to push the camera in close, as if gawking at Sidibe’s dramatic coloring and size. But then, I also don’t know why she wasn’t used more: Murphy never looks more alive and excited by a fellow actor — challenged to peak performance — than during ribald, flirtatious banter with Sidibe’s self-possessed working girl.
Lisa Schwarzbaum’s review of Tower Heist in Entertainment Weekly.
UMMMMM, I’M COMPLETELY PISSED ABOUT THIS? You can’t mention my gurl Gabby Sidibe and how great she is without also mentioning how fat and dark-skinned she is? The men in this review are described as “honorable”, “shady”, “fretful nebbish”, “uncouth”, “unreliable”, etc. Their personalities are noticed! And their appearances are not mentioned at all! Meanwhile, Tea Leoni walks in and she’s “cute” and Gabourey Sidibe walks in and she’s fat and dark. Good Lord.

If your boyfriend tells you to lose weight, you should absolutely do as he says. Drop 150 pounds instantly by dumping his stupid ass and then go eat a pizza like the beautiful bitch you are
Tina Turner. The singer, the dancer, the rocker, the beauty, the mother, the creative, the genius, the legend, the icon. Today (Nov. 26th) is her 74th birthday. ❤
This morning my daughter, who is nearly four, saw the stretch marks on my hips and stomach. She ran her hands over them and asked what they were.
“I got them when I grew up,” I said, “and a few more when I had you.” I grinned down at her. “They’re my stripes. You’ll get stripes too when you grow up.”
She was overjoyed. “Really?”
I think she’s in her room now, pretending to be a tiger.
This is what we need to teach.
