In a recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar, the star of the award winning film, “Precious,” Gabourey Sidibe, had this to say about her confidence being a big girl and what makes her feel good about herself:

“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. Your body is your temple, it’s your home, and,” she chuckles, “you must decorate it.”

Sidibe’s favorite decoration to date is the red David Meister dress she wore to the L.A. premiere of Precious. “It was so va va voom, my boobs looked so good in it. I had diamonds on too. Diamonds really do it.” While her size makes off-the-runway looks an impossibility, she’s not that bothered. “I don’t really care because it gives me more freedom. I don’t just flip through a magazine and say, ‘I want this,’ because I can’t, really.”
