Gabby Sidibe Has Her Say On That Super-White Vanity Fair Cover



Vanity Fair‘s most recent cover folded out to reveal 9 of Hollywood’s most celebrated new starlets, but there was a glaring omission: Gabby Sidibe, who has blown the world away with her Oscar-nominated performance in Precious. Now the actress is reacting to the much-discussed snub, which many saw as a racially-fueled exclusion. She told Access Hollywood, “At first I thought, ‘Hmm, should I be there?’ Then I very quickly got over it. I think if I were a part of that shoot I would have felt a little left out anyway.”

She continued: “I would have felt a little like… whether or not I should have been there. [It] doesn’t matter, because I wasn’t on it and I’m excited to be mentioned anywhere, and it doesn’t matter to me where I’m not mentioned. I mean, I come from a world where I’m not on covers and I’m not in magazines at all. And so I was happy to be in the magazine.”

We applaud Gabby for her obvious maturity, but wished Vanity Fair had done something to shift the world toward becoming a place where she is on covers of magazines. Get with it, Graydon.  [Photo: GettyImages/VanityFair]
