Believe in yourself even when you don’t.
On the day of the audition for Precious, Sidibe debated going to class at Mercy College in the Bronx, New York (where she was a psychology major) or going to the audition for the role she was “never going to get.” Her friend persuaded her to go to the audition and the rest is history.

Sidibe's weight has never been a factor when it comes to her success. The Oscar-nominated actress has landed one major role after another since first stepping onto the big screen in the critically acclaimed film Precious in 2009.
