Gabourey Sidibe says Joan Cusack told her to quit 'image-conscious' business


While playing "Plead the Fifth" with Andy Cohen on Wednesday's (April 25) "Watch What Happens Live," Oscar-nominated actress Gabourey Sidibe reveals that one of her "favorite, favorite" celebrities, Joan Cusack, told her to quit her job.

"I was at some industry party, and she says, 'Are you an actress?'" the "Precious" star tells Cohen. "And I said, 'Yeah!' And she says, 'Oh honey, you should really quit the business, it's so image-conscious.'"

Ouch.

Sidibe goes on to say that she's sure Cusack meant the comment in a positive way, but it was still disappointing. Sounds like Cusack is the one who should have pleaded the fifth.
