Gabourey Sidibe

People always ask me, ‘you have so much confidence. Where did it come from?’ It came from me. One day I decided I was beautiful , and so I carried out my life as if I was a beautiful girl. It doesn’t have anything to do with how the world perceives you. What matters is what you see.

Gabourey Sidibe.
Made her big break on the movie Precious with a role that won her an Academy Award for Best Actress. She also featured in Yelling to the Sky, Tower Heist, the seventh season of American Dad, a Foster the People music video and appeared on the tv show The Big C.

Some of those who know her from Precious only, believe that she was only on the red carpet for a total of two times because “Hollywood doesn’t wan’t big black girls for more than two seconds”.
I beg to differ. She captures the eye like ruby, loves herself, is fearless and shes *beautiful*. Here captures nine different times of her slaying us out of many more.

Precious: Claireece Precious Jones [INFP]

Introverted Feeling (Fi): Claireece is very private in her emotions, She doesn’t feel like telling anyone just how much she suffers, but she’s often pushed to her limits and loses control very frequently. She doesn’t mind the fact that Blu Rain is a lesbian, since she’s seen by herself that Blu’s sexual orientation doesn’t make her a bad person, as her mother says. She never speaks up when she’s being abused by her parents, and her crushes are personal and private.

Extroverted Intuition (Ne): Her main way out of her emotional pain is daydreaming. She’s often imagining that she has a loving and supportive mother or that she’s a celebrity, loved and admired by all and desired by a handsome man. Her emotional suffering is so intense that it starts affecting her vivid imagination (“Mangia, puttana!”). Even though she’s practically illiterate in the beginning of the film, her writing skills progresses very swiftly.

Introverted Sensing (Si): The abuse she’s suffered is even more intensified by this function, She relives the trauma she’s endured by her father’s hands so realistically, so intensely, that Ms. Rain almost calls the nurse for her. She is sentimental and likes to go through her family’s pictures to stimulate her impossible fantasies.

image

Extroverted Thinking (Te): She’s not very assertive, and the fact that she’s extremely damaged doesn’t help much. She often acts through her feelings, like hitting the boy at Mr. Wicher’s class so he would shut up and slapping Consuelo for calling her fat. However, she decides to do what needs to be done to survive, and works hard to give her children a better life than hers.

So are y’all still gonna pretend like Sandra Bullock and Jennifer Lawrence deserved to beat out Gabourey Sidibe and Viola Davis?

Your body is your temple, it is your home, and you must decorate it.

I want this watch so when somebody asks me what time it is I’ll tell them “It’s Precious time; Don’t waste it.”
