Gabby SidibeÃ¢â¬â¢s performance in Precious earned her an Oscar nomination for best actress this year amongst Sandra Bullock, who called her Ã¢â¬ÅexquisiteÃ¢â¬Â during her acceptance speech, and Meryl Streep, making her a top star. But, PopEater reports that industry insiders are saying Gabby will need to lose weight if she wants to stay at the top.
Ã¢â¬ÅIÃ¢â¬â¢m not saying itÃ¢â¬â¢s correct, but itÃ¢â¬â¢s a simple fact that she will have to lose a lot of weight if she wants to keep getting parts,Ã¢â¬Â a casting director told PopEater. Ã¢â¬ÅThe same thing happened to Nikki Blonsky from Hairspray. Everyone said how great she was, and she hasnÃ¢â¬â¢t worked since.Ã¢â¬Â
Friends of Gabby say she doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t feel pressure, but also point out that parts arenÃ¢â¬â¢t exactly being thrown her way.
Time will tell, but hopefully Hollywood will give Gabby a chance!
