They are showing pictures of Gabby Sidibe, the girl that played in precious. The comments and the stories on her looks (the idiots not withstanding) have been positively GLOWING, yet all I can think is how hypocritical this all is. As many sit here PRAISING his girl (who is an ACTRESSS she was NOT born poor but in Beverley hills I saw an interview about it) she is obese. Not healthy at ALL. Michelle Obama is beginning this campaign on childhood obesity that is being praised all over yet no one criticizes THIS. Is this a double standard? SHOULD this girl be praised for her looks? I am not being ugly. She seems nice enough. But she is NOT healthy!Answer Question

I am with you on the acting Mama. I didnt see the movie but from the clips she looked like she did a great job. And like I said she seems sweet. But many of those writing the stories on her are praising her LOOKS. Those are the people I am wondering about. Also I saw many in the comments section (again idiots not withstanding) question her healthiness and the vein of the articles, only to be called racist or "mean". I dont think it would be off to praise her work but question her health. They DO do this (and SHOULD) with the super skinny stars. Is there no happy medium?

All of Hollywood is a double standard. Those same people that are praising her are only doing so because she is who she is right now. In a year or two if she hasn't done anything noteworthy in Hollywood, they will rip on her as hard as they do Kristie Alley (I think that's who I am thinking of). They are a bunch of coattail-riding-boot-lickers, and right now the young lady that played Precious has power. Talent should always be recognized and acknowledged, but we all know that Hollywood isn't all about seeing the talent. I am sure for some of these people commenting on her, some likely have a hole in their lip from biting it so hard - wanting to say the obvious. That's just how they are.
