    From RadarOnline: Gabourey Sidibe’s mom Alice Tan Ridley has said that her Oscar-nominated daughter would like to lose some weight.

    “The truth is Gabourey would like to lose some weight but the reality is that she would not have gotten the role of Precious if she had not been heavy. As her mom I would like to see my daughter healthy but if she didn’t lose weight that’s not a problem either – it runs in our family.”

    In fact, they “have relatives that are 80-years-old who are too heavy” so “it works in different ways for different folks.”

    Regardless of whether her daughter loses weight or not, Ridley has full faith Gabourey will continue thriving as an actress.

    “I’m proud of my daughter no matter what and the truth is that there are all kinds of acting roles for all sorts of people.”

    The Precious star’s body has come under scrutiny in recent times with shock-jock Howard Stern cruelly mocking her for being overweight.

    Rumors have also been circulating around Hollywood that producers want her to do Celebrity Fit Club. A diet company has also reportedly reached out to the actress to get her to endorse their product. However, Ridley has yet to hear anything.

    “I have not heard anything about her appearing on Celebrity Fit Club or any of these dieting companies getting Gabby to try and endorse their products.”
