Gabourey Sidibe was offered a year long subscription to weight loss pills. The company,, issued her a letter saying they were worried about her health and that she ought to consider weighloss for that reason alone, not her image. However, they did add in a snarky comment alluding to the fact that she’d need to lose weight in order to win an Oscar.

more Gaby after the hop…

As reports:

“She has amazing potential, Oprah believes in her, and she could someday be on that stage accepting an Oscar. We can only put it out there for her, we hope she takes us up on our offer. “The only way you can reach your goal of someday winning that Oscar is by being active, fit and most of all, healthy!” clearly did this for sales (they say there numbers have more then doubled), but aside from that, who’s to say an herbal pill of legalized speed will thin Gaby down to Hollywood size? It’s just icky all over.
