Gabourey Sidibe is an award-winning actress, best known for the title role of Precious, based on the novel Push by Sapphire. She currently plays the role of Becky on Fox’s Empire. In her new memoir, This is Just My Face, she shares a one-of-a-kind life story as challenging as many of the unique characters she has played onscreen. Sidibe paints her Bed-Stuy/Harlem family life with a polygamous father and a gifted mother who supports her two children by singing in the subway. Sidibe also writes about her unconventional rise to fame as a movie star, alongside “a superstar cast of rich people who lived in mansions and had their own private islands and amazing careers while I lived in my mom’s apartment.”
