Yowch! What? Gabourey Sidibie may have portrayed a kid from the school of hard knocks, but the real-life actress is living it up! In between photo shoots and high fashion makeovers the Precious star is reveling in her newfound fame and why not? But in the upcoming issue of Harper’s Bazaar Sidibie not only dishes on acting and stardom, she shares thoughts on her weight, and HATING yoga.
Sidibe, 26, tells Bazaar she’s joining a gym, but you won’t see her in a yoga studio anytime soon. “I hate yoga so much. Like, if yoga was a person, I’d stab them.” (context: a discussion around Kate Moss, skinniness and yoga).
Harsh! At least she doesn’t need a self-esteem boost. Here’s the thing though, you know what this means don’t you? Yoga’s image needs a revamp stat! We’ve had multiple discussions about skinny white women as the poster children for yoga in America. Obviously this is not realistic, and frankly, it’s distressing and sad. We need to get the message out that yoga really is for everyone! So who wants to approach Gabby with a new perspective on the practice?? Yoga Journal? ahem.
