In the latest issue of The HF Magazine, actress Gabourey Sidibe poses for a few personality-filled photos. The 28-year-old Tower Heist actress dished on how music and children are her inspiration, her upcoming films and movie roles and jokingly shared what her profession would be if she weren’t an actress.
HF: If you could be anything but an actor, what would you choose to be?
GS: Professional video game tester. That’s of course in the case that Professional-chocolate-taster is unavailable.
HF: Aside from acting, what is your preferred method of artistic expression, if anything?
GS: I love to sing! I love music. I sing all the time without even realizing it. I also love to write. When most teenagers in my high school were getting high (and pregnant), my best friend Crystal and I would write stories for each other. It’s always been a great interest of mine. Whenever I have a bad day, it helps me feel better to write out the way the day should have gone.
HF: Any future projects you can tell us about?
GS: Well Tower Heist is in theaters now, I will shoot the third season of The Big C on Showtime early next year and I have another film, a cool dark comedy that I am attached to, called What’s the Matter with Margie, that I hope to start filming next year, as well.
HF: What and who inspires you?
GS: I’m inspired by music and children. Babies are the best! They haven’t been spoiled by the world and so their ideas are so fresh and selfless. [Source]
