Gabourey Sidibe Doesn’t Want Congratulations for Her Weight Loss: ‘My Body Actually Has Nothing To Do With You’
Gabourey Sidibe doesn’t want to be congratulated for losing weight.
The Empire actress believes that people shouldn’t have an opinion on her own body.
“It just annoys me because I’m just like, don’t congratulate me on that,” she tells Refinery29. “If you’re going to congratulate me on my weight loss, also congratulate me every time I pee. Congratulate me every time I’m burping. Because my body actually has nothing to do with you, and I don’t really need your support for it.”
“My body will always be my body and always had been, and you have nothing to do with it and you’re kind of a stranger. But the way it works is that this is just my body. In the same way that this is just my face, this is just mine.”
