Gabourey Sidibe Doesn't Mind Being Left Out Of Vanity Fair's Young Hollywood Issue

"Precious" star Gabourey Sidibe "quickly got over" the snub she felt Vanity Fair magazine did when she was left out of its Young Hollywood issue. The glossy featured an all-white and all-skinny group of actresses, as critics pointed out.

With an Oscar Best Actress nod in tow, the 26-year-old newcomer was an obvious choice to be included in the cover. But the magazine apparently didn't think so. What Vanity Fair did instead was to feature a duplicate of the golden age of the industry, when an ingénue-type character with patrician look is the "in" thing.

The March 2010 issue features nine of Hollywood's young actresses, all of them white and skinny: Amanda Seyfried, Anna Kendrick, Kristen Stewart, Carey Mulligan, Abbie Cornish, Rebecca Hall, Emma Stone, Mia Wasikowska, and Evan Rachel Wood.

But as critics and online users pointed out, there's not one woman of color and definitely no one who weighs more than the skinny type.

Readers also why was Sidibe, the breakout girl who gathered rave reviews and numerous nominations for her portrayal in "Precious," left out.

But for her, being left out was no big deal.

She told Access Hollywood, "At first I though, '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."
