Alphanista Hall Of Fame: Gabourey Sidibe
By Guest Blogger Amyrae
For those who haven’t seen the Lee Daniels film, you must.
Precious is one of those characters that grabs you by the gut, wrenches it around and doesn’t let go until long after the film has ended. She’s not the only stellar performer in the cast by any means, (Mo’Nique, Paula Patton, Mariah Carey and Lenny Kravitz to name a few) but when you get the chance to see the real Gabby off screen, there’s no question why she’s hands down my nomination for the Alphanista Hall of Fame. Confident, funny, sincere, and feisty, this woman is captivating. In stark contrast to the deflated character she played on screen, Gabby can exhilarate any crowd with her witty demeanor. “Being awesome came before I got the part, and I continue to be awesome!” she commented in a BBC new article.
At 26 years old, she has an innocence about her that could some may view as immaturity, but in my opinion that just adds to her charm. Spunky, eager and full of life, she’s sure to make it far, but after only one film it’s up to you alphas to decide whether she’s hall of fame worthy. Is it too much too son?
Yay or nay to Gabby….
