 Gabourey Sidibe Biography

Gabourey Sibide made her film debut as the lead role Precious in Lee Daniels’s Oscar Nominated film Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire, for which she received an Academy Award® and Golden Globe® nomination for Best Actress. On TV, credits include many acclaimed series, including starring in Fox's Golden Globe nominated hit, Empire, appearances in American Horror Story: Coven, all seasons of the Golden Globe nominated Showtime series The Big C and on Hulu's Difficult People. In 2017, she will release her directorial debut with The Tale of Four, as part of Refinery29's ShatterBox Anthology series. Her first book, This Is Just My Face: Try Not to Stare, is out in May 2017.

Gabourey Sidibe was born on May 6, 1983, in Brooklyn. Her father drove a cab and her mother taught special education. After her parents divorced, Sidibe lived with her mother. She pursued acting in New York while attending community college and working odd jobs.

Sidibe maintained her love of performance throughout her adolescence and appeared in bit parts in local theater. But Gabourey's big break came in 2007, when she landed an audition for the movie "Precious," directed by Lee Daniels. The film, about a 16-year-old, 350-pound girl who is abused by her parents, featured seasoned stars Mo'Nique, Mariah Carey and Lenny Kravitz in supporting roles. Sidibe, a relative unknown, was bouncing between several New York community colleges and working odd jobs when she found out that she had landed the part.

The film, which was revealed at Sundance, turned Sidibe into an overnight sensation. Since its release, she has been nominated for a Golden Globe and Academy Award for Best Actress. She also finished work on another film project, "Yelling to the Sky," which co-stars Zoe Kravitz.

Gabourey currently resides in New York City.
