Quotable: Gabourey Sidibe Wants Justin Timberlake To Be Her Oscar Date
“I want to make Justin Timberlake and Anthony Mackie fight it out for the honor of being my date. I’m just going to throw them in the ring and make them do it!”
— Gabourey Sidibe in an interview with a Canadian talk show. When asked whom she’d pick if she had to choose between them, she replied: “Justin, if you’re not doing anything on that night, maybe you could be my date or something. It’s fine. No pressure!” [via NY Daily News]
Seriously, Justin, go to the Oscars with the girl — she’s nominated for best actress! Not gonna happen probably ever for Jessica Biel. In fact, Frisky readers, let’s start a Twitter trend — please tweet #justinescortgabby and let’s see if we can help get the word out. This is activism at its most well-meaning yet shallow.
