We all first came to know Gabourey Sidibe as the 16-year-old Precious in the 2009 movie of the same title. Well, the actress is back with a lot of new things to offer. USA Today reports that Sidibe is releasing her memoir titled This Is Just My Face: Try Not to Stare.
The outlet notes that the book details the actress’ experience undergoing laparoscopic bariatric surgery in May 2016. In the book, the Empire star explains to her readers what will happen to her and her body after the surgery.
Apart from the surgery, the actress’ memoir also documented her mental health struggles which include “depression, anxiety, and bulimia.” The source noted that according to the book’s official website, Sidibe’s book “shares a one-of-a-kind life story in a voice as fresh and challenging as many of the unique characters (Sidibe’s) played onscreen, including her first job as a phone sex talker.”

However, during five months ago, Sidibe noted that she realized her goal is not going to happen because she only hangs out with either a gay man or woman. Fast forward to now, the actress said that she meets a lot of straight men. When asked what does she look for in a guy, Sidibe has a long list in her hands.
The actress said her man has to be tall but not very tall. “I’m 5’4, so if you are 5’6, I will consider you tall because you are taller than me,” said Sidibe. She also wants a guy with “some ambition.” Moreover, he also has to be smart and should love reading too. In addition, Sidibe says she likes funny guys too. Gabourey Sidibe’s new book will be out by May 1, 2017.
