Gabourey Sidibe has hit back at Twitter jibes over her Golden Globes appearance.
The Precious star attracted criticism after gracing the red carpet at the Sunday night awards bash in a floor length, cream gown by Daniel Musto.
The Oscar-nominated actress has never shied away from her plus-size frame and regularly talks about the press preoccupation with her weight.
But after nasty comments about her frame were posted on Twitter following the Golden Globes, the 30-year-old actress decided to make light of the situation.
“To people making mean comments about my GG pics, I mos def cried about it on that private jet on my way to my dream job last night. #JK (sic),” she posted to her followers.
Among the caustic comments posted on the social networking sites were claims Gabourey’s dress made her look like a condom and “the chubby ghost from Casper”.
Currently starring in hit TV show American Horror Story, Gabourey has three movie projects currently in production.
She has previously talked about a decision she made to be happy in her own skin, and this is a mantra the actress still sticks too.
“When I was 21 or 22 I just decided that life wasn’t worth living if I wasn’t happy with myself so I just took all the steps that I could to figure out how to love myself and become confident,” she said at the Women In Entertainment Symposium in 2012.
“I get shaken a lot, especially being in this business. I have to keep going and living my life, so when things like that upset me I have to find things that build my confidence back up.”
