Gabourey Sidibe: Making “Fangirling” Cool
This is just so cute. Plus, I admit, I might feel the same, although I don’t think I’d be comfortable enough to scream it on national TV, haha.
Talk about role reversals! For Gabourey Sidibe, the 26-year-old star of Precious, the perks of finding herself on the other side of the silver screen just got very real.
“Oh my God, Justin Timberlake just said my name,” the actress told PEOPLE of her reaction to her Golden Globes nomination, which was announced Tuesday morning by the handsome singer. “I’m so very excited to come into this because I’m usually on the other side. I’m a fangirl and I watch these things happen, but they don’t happen to me!”
Sidibe, a self-professed ‘N Sync fanatic, might be as excited about its delivery as the news itself. “I told my roommate, and I literally said, ‘Oh my God, Justin just said my name,’” she said. “He finally said my name.”
