While Actress Gabrielle Union is sharing her insecurities as a “dark skinned woman in hollywood” to the world, Golden Globe- nominated actress Gabourey Sidibe is revealing her confidence. Sidibe is featured in the new issue of Harper’s Bazaar and talks exclusively about her confidence, true beauty, and her exclusive shoot.
On her confidence:
“People always ask me, ‘You have so much confidence. Where did that come from?’ It came from me. One day I decided that I was beautiful, and so I carried out my life as if I was a beautiful girl. I wear colors that I really like, I wear makeup that makes me feel pretty, and it really helps. It doesn’t have anything to do with how the world perceives you. What matters is what you see.
On the shoot:
“I feel like a model. It justifies everyone in my life who told me I wouldn’t be anything until I lost weight. It justifies that little girl who cried because she didn’t think she could be in front of the camera. And it’s for other girls who feel like they can’t do this or that and feel like they’re not pretty and not worthy of having their photo taken.”
*sidenote* I love her confidence and free spirit:)
