Howard Stern Attacks Gabourey Sidibe On Radio Show

Gabourey Sidibe lost the Best Actress award at the "82nd Annual Academy Awards" for her role in award-winning "Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire," but gained plenty of fans along the way. Except for one: Howard Stern, who took to his Sirius radio show to trash the 26-year-old star, calling her "enormous" and saying she's too fat to have a career.

"There's the most enormous, fat black chick I've ever seen. She is enormous. Everyone's pretending she's a part of show business and she's never going to be in another movie," Stern said. "She should have gotten the Best Actress award because she's never going to have another shot. What movie is she gonna be in?"

"'Blind Side 2,'" Stern suggested. "She could be the football player, take out the whole front line."

Stern, on the air with his co-host Robin Quivers, also played the speech given by Oprah Winfrey to Sidibe at the Oscars on the program. The hosts said Oprah was lying to her by saying she's going to have a career in Hollywood.

"Come on, be honest with the girl," Stern said. "Look in that room. Who else do you look like? Those are the people that work all the time," Quivers agreed.

But Sidibe already does have projects lined up following her turn in "Precious." She'll appear in the new Showtime series, "The C Word," opposite Laura Linney in a show about a cancer-stricked suburban mom. She also makes her next film appearance opposite the daughter of "Precious" co-star Lenny Kravitz, Zoƫ Kravitz, in the drama "Yelling to the Sky."
