Gabourey Sidibe is the lead actor for the upcoming blockbuster movie “Precious.”  The film isn’t going to open in  theaters until November 6, but it has been garnering Oscar buzz for months.  The film is executive produced by Oprah and Tyler Perry and directed by Lee Daniels of “Monster’s Ball”.

For the first time, we’re getting a bird’s eye view into the woman behind the “Precious” character.  Sidibe sat with ABC’s “Good Morning America” host Robin Roberts and revealed that she hasn’t even acted before.  This is her first role.  She is 26 and a college student.  You’ll find that Gabourey is a “little” different from the character she plays.

The lead character and Mo’Nique (who plays her mother) are the big scene stealers for the project.  Oscar buzz has also been circling Mo’Nique since the first viewing of the trailer.  She comes through the screen as the venomous, abusive mother of Precious.  Faye Dunaway in “Mommy Dearest” ain’t got nothin’ on Mo’Nique.

But there’s also a number of non-actors but are heavyweights in what they do.  For instance, Mariah Carey and Lenny Kravitz, who both shed their sexy big time for their roles.  Robin Thicke’s wife, Paula Patton (Idlewild and Deja Vu) also gives a commanding performance as Precious’ teacher and the most instrumental person in Precious’ life.
