Howard Stern Not A Fan Of Precious Star Gabourey Sidibe

| Filed under: Film FlickersHoward Stern

Howard Stern showed no mercy for Gabourey Sidibe from Precious on his Sirius XM Radio show, ripping on the actress along with sidekick Robin Quivers.

Hate on Gabby all you want, but girlfriend is an Oscar nominee and she's just having a good time!

What do U think about Howard and Robin's comments?

    Here is the thing! That is the only movie she will ever be in… THATS IT



  2. 2

    i love howard and robin but sometimes i really do disagree with them. they are both strangely hateful toward overweight people. it's a real issue with the two of them and it's super lame; i think it really does reflect badly back on both of them when they do this shit. i don't understand it. i'm always disappointed when they start to talk this way.



  3. 3

    All he was saying was it will be tough for her to find roles. He's right. She better enjoy herself now, it won't last.



  4. 4

    howard can stfu! precious was the best movie this year!!!!!!! he can take his dick and shove it up his ass, or is it too small?he's no better than the street thugs, heck he looks like one and gabby looks like a star. btw gabby should have won that oscar not sandra.



  5. 5

    hahahahahaha love it or hate it he got balls to say it.



  6. 6

    Its sad but true



  7. 7

    By the way…the blindside 2 line was funny as hell.



  8. 8

    Howard takes the fact that he was born a very UGLY person on everyone…FUCK HIM



  9. 9

    Howard is just being honest.And funny,,,



  10. 10

    WOW! I agree with Howard. He is right for a change. At first i was like leave her alone. But he made some really good points.



  11. 11

    Fat people seems to be still fashionable to ridicule…this is preposterous and even Howard should know better than to pick on fat people….look at Oprah with all the time money and effort she has put into being "socially acceptably slim" and it just is impossible for some..leave her alone.



  12. 12

    howard stern is an asshole!



  13. 13

    Totally agree, we all know it is true. Howard just speaks what we all know.



  14. 14

    Howard is an asshole.



  15. 15

    They are 100% right. What can she do now? And everyone saying how beautiful she is. What a joke.



  16. 16

    She's an Oscar nominee because if she hadn't been nominated, the blacks would've been screaming about discriminating against her for the color of her skin and her obesity. She might have given a decent performance; I don't know because I have no interest in the film. But she got EXTREMELY LUCKY in her first and probably only role. There isn't a lot of call for supremely-fat women, let alone supremely fat black women. I don't know what Stern said; I'm not gonna watch the clip. But Sidibe got far more attention and acclaim than her single role merited (that she was passed over for several other awards is rather telling), and it's probably largely because of the black tendency to scream about discrimination where there isn't any.
    .
    On another note, I have seen several clips of Monique's work on that movie, and what little I've seen was excellent; she deserved her Oscar.



  17. 17

    This is probably the worst thing I've heard today. What the hell is wrong with these people? They are completely hateful! Gabby is such a wonderful actress and assuming that her weight had anything to do with her performance is ridiculous and mean-spirited. This is basically 4 minutes of hating on her and its completely undeserved!



  18. 18

    Ahh, leave it to Howard. Atleast being overweight can be fixed, but unfortunately for him, being ugly can't. Gabourey did a great job and I loved the movie.



  19. 19

    Ohh God…He's crazy… She's Amazing acting…!!!



  20. 20

    A little harsh, but they said what a lot of people are thinking. Gabourey is so fantastic, down to earth and has high self esteem… these comments will not bring her down.



  21. 21

    I think its funny that someone that looks like Howard looks, can make fun of ANYONE else and people think its funny and right. He is THE ugliest man that God ever created and he still thinks that he has the right to sit there and criticize someone else for their looks. That is hilarious to me. Stupid ass…



  22. 22

    HAHAH AMAZING!!!! SO TRUE!! He couldn't have said it any better!!

    That was her 15 min of fame!!



  23. 23

    i hate to say this but i think Howard stern is right…sorry



  24. 24

    It could have been alot worse. This was really nice coming from Howard and very true. She needs to get healthy so we can see more of her talent.



  25. 25

    I have to agree with them. She is grossly obese and there may not be a lot of opportunity for her in Hollywood! HOWEVER, if she is smart she can be totaly marketable..weight loss progrmas and shows anything that would require her to fit "hollywood" image. Im sorry to say but thats the world we live in. She can do a campaine about how much better her life is when shes not a treat of a heartattack. I think shes got real potentionl



  26. 26

    I got what he was trying to say, but the laughing snickering etc, was really not warranted. They are right, she doesn't fit into the Hollywood norm, and she might never get another role in a movie. He doesn't have to refer to her as "the enormous fat black chick from precious"; "that planet" , or comment that it looks like she took up 2 chairs and tell her "go get yourself thin", it was spiteful at times.
    I love how Robin tries to correct Howard for saying "Gabrielle" but she referred to her has "Gabba whatever her name is".



  27. 27

    She can lose the weight, but Howard and Robin can't lose the ugly.



  28. 28

    HAHAHA!!!
    I love Howard!!!



  29. 29

    Ha Ha Howard Stern is right! We were all thinking what he had the balls and forum to say.
    If she was white, she would not had as many fans.



  30. 30

    I find his statement kind of hard to believe considering he hasn't been in another movie since Private Parts. Why? Because nobody wants to cast a tall, big-nosed geek with a vision problem.



  31. 31

    He's a dick.
    I'm sure she'll lose some weight in the near future, I think it's more about her health than anything else. Like look at Queen Latifa, she's certainly not small but she has a good career.



  32. 32

    how fucking dare they say something as hurtful and distuging as that.
    i couldn't even listen to the entire thing. DISTUSTING.

    shes a oscar nominated actress and all hes doing ( and his lowlife sidekick ) is talk about her weight.
    REALLY?! shes the nicest, sweetest girl. and im sure she WILL get some roles. for god sakes what the fuck is wrong with howard stern he needs to stfu. for real.
    ur a grown man.
    hes got talent. and all he can do is talk shit about her.
    GET A FUCKING LIFE U PIECE OF SHIT !!!!

    ( this is coming from a 15 year old so u KNOW u need to get a fucking life )
    what a asshole !



  33. 33

    I didn't even like the movie Precious but that's just harsh.



  34. 34

    she's so fat her face doesn't show you her expressions, her face was motionless during the film, it was nearly impossible to see what she was thinking it would have been a travesty if she won best actress. She needs to lose like 100lb really quick as she's severely clinically obese.



  35. 35

    Howard is pathetic, he needed some press so he could try and pocket some more $ because his contract is up, his rating r low and noone wants to pay him what he thinks he's worth…..so he picks on the fat girl….



  36. 36

    Sad but true. Why is Oprah saying these things about her? She is deluding the poor girls. Howard Stern is right, what other roles is she going to play? and she is only going to live five more years until she has a heart attack.. Cinderella my ass…



  37. 37

    Gabourey Sidibe is a beautiful girl and I would love to be friends with her if I could meet her. Her performance in "Precious" was incredible. She became that character. I hope she knows that she is an incredibly talented actress and she should be HAPPY to know that she didn't win ONLY BECAUSE she's skinny and white.

    I HATE PEOPLE LIKE THIS. GOD! WHY? Whatever happened to being good at your craft? Not everyone grows up aspiring to be Kim Kardashian- some people actually have talent and only the intelligent ones are able to appreciate them because they are truly precious. I would love to put Gabourey in my movie.

    HOWARD STERN HAS THE INTELLIGENCE LEVEL AND OBSERVATIONAL SKILLS OF A MONKEY WHO HAS DONE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO CONTRIBUTE OR INSPIRE THE WORLD.



  38. 38

    It's just because she's fat.



  39. 39

    HOWARD STERN HAS THE INTELLIGENCE LEVEL AND OBSERVATIONAL SKILLS OF A MONKEY WHO HAS DONE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO CONTRIBUTE OR INSPIRE THE WORLD.



  40. 40

    Re: sayswho – good point…maybe that sandwich eating mess of a thing could play Oprah from the late 80's.



  41. 41

    Re: lovers

    Take his dick and shove it up his ass?? All for his opinion….what should we make you do for your blind opinion.

    You are an idiot…If she was a fat white chick you would not be defending her

  42. Laury says – reply to this


    42

    Wow. Just wow. And I thought Perez was an insensitive douche. Howard Stern is such an asshole. I can't believe how mean that man is. Hating on a young girl just because she happens to be black and obese… If she was white and thin he would probably be praising her. So what if she's never in another movie? She's already achieved more than most girls her age. Why can't he just let her enjoy her moment in the spotlight? What a fucking dick.



  43. 43

    Uh well he's being honest. I'm so tired of seeing this huge black wall of fat everywhere…it's just ridiculous. I saw a clip of her walking the red carpet at the Oscars and Gabourey was talking about chik fil a, she knew the exact miles of a location from her hotel and she said she was going "to hit" chick fil a "hard" the next day…..I mean come on…..she has no shame,,,,its just beyond gross



  44. 44

    Howard should do some research before he runs his mouth. Gabby has already finished her second movie, "Yelling to the Sky" and has joined the cast of the new Showtime series "The Big C" with Laura Linney and Oliver Platt.



  45. 45

    Re: sayswho
    You just ridiculed them by calling them fat, ha ha !



  46. 46

    Re: LusciousLiz
    He can't help being unattractive, but her fat ass can lose weight…ha ha, I win!



  47. 47

    I do feel sorry for the girl, but Howard's right. I can't imagine another role this girl will win. And morbid obesity is not something to take lightly. It's one thing to criticize size 10s, but this girl is extremely unhealthy. Stop being so PC and recognize that this girl is a horrible role model, and a tragically misguided justification for every obese girl out there to keep on eatin'.



  48. 48

    Re: newfiechic

    My thoughts exactly.



  49. 49

    that's what i thought!! that is the only role she will ever get plus she will probably die if she doesn't take care of herself.



  50. 50

    Gabourey Sidibe is an exceptional actress. Sandra Bullock may be charming and thin and white with long thick hair and an expensive dress and a good ol' American marriage but Gabourey's performance was INCREDIBLY BETTER. Gabourey, you're awesome.



  51. 51

    I forgot how funny they are, now they are not mainstream, never listen. I was soooo thinking the same thing while watching the AW's. She is not going to have a career after this. The weight part, well that is mean because I don't think ppl are sympathetic to the genetic cause of weight.



  52. 52

    he's absolutely correct and in the beginning both of them even said she'll be dead in a few years if she doesn't loose weight. They're both right!!! Stern's a shock jock of sorts and if you expected anything else from him, you're as dumb as she is fat…….see LaGarse, comment 16….couldn't have said it better!!!!!!!!



  53. 53

    she's nothing but a one trick pony.



  54. 54

    Brutally honest as ever, Howie.
    He's right though, if she doesn't lose weight she may die way too young.



  55. 55

    Although Howard was 100% right some of the things he said were out of line and just plain cruel and Robin should know better considering she was overweight at one time.



  56. 56

    He's kinda right.



  57. 57

    Howard Stern has a face for radio for a reason. Ugly inside and out!!!!



  58. 58

    I thought what he was saying was mean, but then, I can't disagree with him. Does that make me a bad person?



  59. 59

    There are a number of bigger ladies who looked pretty damn good. Queen Latifah and Monique are big but look pretty and like they are healthy. This girl looks like death from fat. She looks like she's suffocating on her own fat. I wanted to like her but when I saw her walking the red carpet strutting and talking like some kind of pre-teen diva instead of having a bit of respect it made me not like her at all. I don't like Howard Stern a whole lot but he got this one right. About the only role this girl will ever get is a remake of King Kong.



  60. 60

    I love Howard, but this time he is just plain rude and nasty. Leave the girl alone!!!



  61. 61

    everything he said was true, i hope she didnt hear any of it, but it is true…hopefully the msg will get to her in a different context and maybe she will try to loose some of her weight…she is masive!!!



  62. 62

    She just finished her follow up movie and scored a recurring roll on a Showtime series. Not bad for a one hit wonder…..



  63. 63

    Sad but true. The movie was great and she was great in it. But how many movies call for an obese black leading role. ZERO!!!!



  64. 64

    well supposedly she already does have a few things lined up including an HBO or Showtime thing, but as a former casting professional I can honestly say, for once, Howard is right. her weight is extremely limiting, but she could do okay if she sticks with black-only projects. I wish her the best - she seems to have a good head on her shoulders.



  65. 65

    Absolutely disgusting. Since when is discrimination acceptable?



  66. 66

    I think they're being pretty cruel making fun of her, but there is definitely SOME truth to what they are saying. Personally, I think that Gabby needs to lose at least a little weight for purely health reasons. That girl is morbidly obese and she needs to start eating better, exercising, and maybe even consider surgery to help her lose weight. I'm tired of people patting this girl on the back for being big and proud of it. It's one thing to have healthy curves, it's another to be slowly killing yourself because of your weight. She's a terrible role model for kids too with all this childhood obesity, children's diabetes, and young people having strokes and heart attacks nowadays.



  67. 67

    I actually agree with Howard and Robin. Im so sick of everyone kissing her fat black ass. Enough already! Haven't we kissed enough black ass lately? She probably won't be in anything else because if she is not careful she will die from obesity complications.



  68. 68

    The truth sometimes hurts..



  69. 69

    Howard Stern is an ignorant ASSHOLE! I hate him! Gabourey could lose weight, Howard will always be ugly!



  70. 70

    the part about how she might not have a brilliant career because of her obesity is well.. right.. but I didnt appreciate how they made fun of her like that.. saying that she needed two chairs and just being mean and getting her name wrong more than once and claiming that her performance came from real life misery (even if true, who are we to judge, who doesnt have issues?!) .. just plain disrespectful and totally undeserved! These people need to learn how to criticize gracefully withOUT hurting anybody's feelings. I am so sorry she has to deal with things like that.. it fucking HURTS! Very sad!

  71. ash,* says – reply to this


    71

    La Garse: I agree with most of what you said but I have to say I disagree with what you said about obese black women having less of a chance at success in hollywood than obese white women. I can think of LOTS of overweight black women who have been in the spotlight and very few overweight white women that have been given that chance.



  72. 72

    at lest he's not all fake like Oprah~ Oprah, she is so concenscending and contemptuous~ she's talking down to the Precious actress, she might as well pat her on the top of her head. Oprah is such a phoney~



  73. 73

    who cares….



  74. 74

    My scrotum has less wrinkles than Stern's face….he should take some of that left over divorce settlement money and buy his ass some manners! Must be nice to profit at the "cruel" expense of others.



  75. 75

    …so is he sayin fat people can't get jobs in the industry? Sure she may not be a 'sex symbol', but look at Oprah, Monique, Roseanne, Perez and John Goodman. Robin Quivers makes me ill. She needs to go lose weight herself and stfu before i snatch that nappy weave outta her head. She's an idiot.



  76. 76

    When I see her and how huge she is all I can think about is that she must have that stink that really horribly obese people have.



  77. 77

    I liked this movie and I do think this young woman needs desperately to lose weight - she is morbidly obese. She fits the category - medically speaking. She WAS great in the movie but Oprah gets on my last nerve dictating who is and will be a star. She is not always right and if she really cared she would help this young woman.



  78. 78

    If they ever make a movie out of the TV show "Whats Happening" she could play Roger and Dee's mom…other than that Howard's right.



  79. 79

    IT (Howard) and He/She (Robin) were not JUST commenting, they were making childish and uncalled for insults and even 'snorting' when they laughed.

    That is in line with their trashy lowlife existences. They live on the edge of an abyss filled with the most criminal, psychotic and disturbed people on this planet. Is it such a surprise that they would make remarks like this because it makes them feel better about their own empty lives?? NO.

    Life is not forever, but HELL for them will be. THAT is the satisfying part.



  80. 80

    Howard's a dickhead! That being said, she won't get any work if she doesn't lose weight. In the entertainment industry, it's just a fact.



  81. 81

    Some truth exists in what Howard Stern says about this actress. Successful actors are not allowed to be overweight; old people are not allowed to be pop stars. Madonna is the only old pop star; Gabourey Sibide is the only obese actor. That's how the cookie crumbles.



  82. 82

    just because she is over weight she doesn't even have the opportunities!! Howard && Robin go suckk on something LONG, HARD && STIFF!!



  83. 83

    Sadly, her roles will be limited. Regardless of her race, her situation is very much like that of Nikki Blonsky. The biggest thing Nikki has on her plate (oh dang–that's not a pun) is Hairspray 2…



  84. 84

    I have never commented on here before but feel I need to now. I can't believe what an enormous, inconsiderate dickhead Howard Stern is. And his stupid-ass side kick… holy. They are the epitome of why the world is f-ed up. Just because she is large… Who the frick cares?! She is beautiful. She is talented. She is an OSCAR NOMINEE!! Which is more than I can say for Howard Stern and Robin. Maybe she won't get another movie… but God, I hope she does just to spite stupid, bigoted people like that!!! You go, girl.



  85. 85

    Well if she doesn't make it in Hollywood she can always make it on the Radio you know since Howard found work there. Why are they treating her like she's an idiot? You don't think she knows all this already? Maybe she is enjoying the moment but she's not going to go around being like well am fat so I probably won't get other roles. I've seen her interview and she is very grateful and enjoying the moment she didn't come off as if she was planning a 20yr career in showbiz.



  86. 86

    Everyone knows its true, but they don't have the guts to say it. Do you really think she is going to have a long lengthy career??? Come on, name all the movies lately that have had gigantic ugly black chicks in them. Take a look at Jennifer Hudson. She's big, but it takes like three Hudsons to be this big. Where are all the roles for Jennifer Hudson since her nomination??? Exactly!

    Start the clock on Sidibe's 15 minutes right now.



  87. 87

    Sorry, but he's probably right.



  88. 88

    Howard is speaking the truth-and everyone knows it!Even Whoopi said the same thing-but then she made it "nicer" by saying that maybe she would get more parts being that she has such a nice way about her(her bubbly personality). She does seem like a great person but sadly,she will most likely never or rarely work again(unless she loses the weight). I mean if thin girls are told to lose some weight to get a role-how could she possibly fit in? How many roles will there be for a morbidly obese person? and to "La Garse" down below- you really need to get out more-why are you saying that black people would make it a racial thing if Gabby wasn't nominated?Please, you need to widen your horizons if that's what you really think about black people-AND YOU ADMITTED THAT YOU DIDN'T SEE THE MOVIE yet somehow assumed that she wasn't qualified for the part?! WOW!



  89. 89

    I think this is extremely rude! For a first movie, and the intensity of the movie I believe she did a wonderful job. I Disagree with majority of the statements made and I think it is such a hollywood cliché idea that you have to be thin to be successful. It is sad that it is the reality, but the attitude that it cannot be change irritates me! She is very talented and I cannot wait to



  90. 90

    While a little harsh in their delivery (as always) they are 100% correct. Talented or not, she is morbidly obese and will not have a very long life if she continues on this path.

    While I don't think she needs to be a size 0, I think she should put her health before her career and get down to a healthier weight.



  91. 91

    She looks like the Stay Puf't Marshmallow Man after being roasted over a fire.



  92. 92

    THAT IS SOOOO MEAN……BUT UNFORTUNATELY ITS TRUE!



  93. 93

    The truth hurts sometimes..



  94. 94

    Howard Stern tells it like it is. She did have to sit on the end, because she is too large to sit in the chairs. Woman are beautiful in all shapes and sizes, but not when you are the size "Gabby"- as Oprah calls her. Oprah constantly preaches about weight loss, healthy eating, and exercising- so she needs to preach to Gabby. I'm sorry but I was having a hard time watching her when the camera would zone in on her at the Oscars. Does anyone know how uncomfortable it is to sit or stand when you are that heavy? I was once "heavy" and my life sucked!



  95. 95

    Re: La Garse – Wow, La Garse, my assumption is that you purposely posted something like this to get a rise out of people. if so, you succeeded. If not, and you really mean this, you are about the dumbest, po dunk, hillbilly shit kicking racist needle nosed piece of shit to walk the planet. You did not watch the movie and yet you say she did not deserve the nomination.. Wow, what a grade a jackass you are. Please, blacks have much more to do than to go around harrassing the Academy to nominate Gabourey. If it was that easy, Tracey Morgan would be nominated for all of his movies..LMAO..isten, get a life if your goal is to just rile up people. And if you truly believe this way, do me, the world a favor adn never, ever, ever, pro create.. One of you is enough in this world..Now go put your teeth back in, get off the goat you are fucking, and go prepare dinner for your significant other. You know, the one you are related to…



  96. 96

    IF YOU THINK FAT IS HEALTHY, PICK UP A NUTRITION BOOK! She's a walking diabetic induced coma following a heart attack!!!!!



  97. 97

    Okay, Howard Stern is jerk - there's no denying that. But, while Gabourey may be incredibly nice, and happy with her image, she *is* going to have a hard time getting roles in Hollywood. It is already extremely hard for women of color to get good roles, and it is hard for overweight women to get roles. She's both. People have mentioned Queen Latifah and Mo'nique - they are big ladies, but not as big a Gabourey. And how many movies or television shows do they do a year?

    If she wants the long and interesting career Oprah envisions, she needs to at least slim down a bit; if not to increase the number of potential roles for her, then at least to improve her health.

    This is not about hate but about facing reality. I don't know what kind of actress she is because I have no interest in seeing "Precious". But in Hollywood, image is everything, and her image is far to specific to afford her that many opportunities, regardless of the caliber of her craft.



  98. 98

    Reason # 5,625,598 why I hate this guy and think he is nothing but a waste of skin! What will you be remembered for, Howard? How obnoxious you can be? What a dink!



  99. 99

    He's right. She is morbidly obese! Instead of skirting around the issue, she should use her new-found star and, hopefully, some money to get healthy! At that weight, her roles will be limited and her life may be limited. All you haters on Howard wouldn't have the balls he does EVER to be up-front and honest like he is.



  100. 100

    He was right in saying she didn't look like anyone else in the Oscar audience, and that is where she can make her mark in the acting world: she looks like a real person… go to any Walmart store in America, and you'll see lots of people who look like her. The producers made a great choice when they cast her, and now it's up to more casting directors and producers to make films using the whole range of humanity… anyhow, I think she's adorable, and a wonderful actress, and if I were in charge of choosing Oscar winners, she'd have that golden statue.
    .
    P.S. Howard Stern sucks
