Gabourey Sidibe’s transformation has surprised many but the actress says she gets annoyed when people congratulate her over her weight loss.
In an interview with Refinery29, the Empire actress believes that people shouldn’t have an opinion on her own body.
This is what she said:
“It just annoys me because I’m just like, don’t congratulate me on that. 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.”
The actress says that a lot many people on social media think that they have a right to comment on her appearance.
“The worst thing about Twitter is that everyone thinks their opinion is really important. And you’re 100% free to say something about it,”“I have to know myself and I have to know my own boundaries and take in what I need. And what I don’t need I don’t take in.
That’s how it’s gotta be with my body. That’s how it has to be with my hairstyle choice, my clothing choice. I take in what I want.”
