Gabourey Sidibe made waves when she starred in the film 'Precious' in 2009.
After delivering a good performance for the movie, the plus-sized actress was nominated for an Oscar.
According to Lifebuzz, other than acting, one of the issues that constantly surrounds her is her weight.
Though Sidibe is proud of her body, people can't help but comment on it -- and sometimes, the commentary is just plain mean.
She has since taken steps to maintaining a healthier lifestyle.
