the actress who is starring(Gabourey Sidibe) in the new movie 'precious' was on oprah the other day and surprise, surprise the discussion turned to body image and dieting.

oprah noted on the show that the director of the movie(lee daniels) has said the actress speaks "like a white girl from the valley" and has so much confidence that she is either in "denial about her physicality or from another planet."

aside from the obvious ridiculousness of that statement, why does the conversation about this actress automatically have to turn to dieting and body image?

so she has to be in denial about her body image because she's confident??? really?? that doesn't exactly seem fair.

and, she probably isn't from another planet since there is no life on other planets.

she said that after a lifetime of body image issues and bad diets she had to: "sit down with myself and decide that i loved myself no matter what my body looked like and what other people thought about my body."
