Gabourey Sidibe Shares the Cover of Her Memoir: “This is Just My Face: Try Not to Stare.”

Sharing is caring!

Gotta say, It’s been a pretty amazing year for one of my all-time favorite plus size actresses! Body positive advocate and all around bad ass, Gabourey Sidibe is killing it!

And to end this year on an extremely high note, last week Gabby tweeted the cover to her long awaited memoir,“This is Just My Face: Try Not to Stare,” set to drop May 1, 2017 on!

Since first making the announcement of working on the memoirs in June of 2015, we’ve been pretty geeked for this moment. From her hilarious tweets to soooooo hilariously real Instagram posts, Gabby has practically spoke to my soul on many occasions.

“Moving from Bed-Stuy to Senegal to Cannes, as Gabby has done in a still-short lifetime, has helped produce a fierce, wise way of being in the world impossible not to admire.


‘Funny’ doesn’t begin to capture just how irreverent and complex Gabby’s stories are.” Deanne Urmy, Senior Executive Editor at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

Congratulations Gabourey Sidibe on an AMAZING YEAR!

Pre-Order this book at!

From Precious to various American Horror Story characters (Queenie was my favorite) and now Becky, on Fox Primetime hit Empire, there’s nothing she can’t do, so of course a book had to be in the works. One that we are sure is going to entertain!

“I’ve been writing since I was a child, and have always had so many stories to tell that are too long, shady, and impolite to share in interviews.


It brings me much joy to add Published Writer to my resume of Actor and part-time Foot Model.” Gabourey Sidibe

And in true fangirl pandemonium, over here we are screaming, “Hey Gabby! Girl, we see you!”

And well in true TCFStyle fashion, I had to round up some of our favorite Gabby moments!

  1. I’m obsessed with Gabourey’s blue and yellow dress on the book cover. Any idea who makes/sells it? Thank you.
