Gabourey Sidibe's Mom Brushes Off Howard Stern's Criticisms

Gabourey Sidibe's mother isn't taking Howard Stern seriously. Alice Tan Ridley, the Oscar nominee's mom, said that the shock jock didn't hire her daughter so he has no say if she has a career in Hollywood.

Speaking with Inside Edition, Ridley brushes off Stern's criticisms that the "Precious" star has no career in Hollywood because of her weight.

She said, "He can see, you can see, I can see Gabby is a big girl. She's a big woman, so what's wrong with that? She's not like everyone else in the worldÂ… I don't see giving jobs out to anybody so why should we care what he says? He might not hire her, but someone else will."

And Sidibe's mom is correct. Someone else hired the 26-year-old newcomer.

Sidibe is starring alongside Laura Linney and Oliver Platt in the Showtime dark comedy "The Big C." She will also be seen in the upcoming film "Yelling to the Sky."

Her mother continued, "You're going to be who you are no matter what anyone has to say about it. They didn't make you, don't let them break you."
