There might occur the question as to how rich is Gabourey Sidibe? As of mid-2017, authoritative sources estimate that Gabourey’s net worth is over $6 million, accumulated during her acting career which only began in 2009, so it would be no surprise if her net worth was to rise somewhat.

Sidibe’s mother is singer Alice Tan Ridley, who appeared on “America’s Got Talent”, while her father, Ibnou is a cab driver. She was educated at the Borough of Manhattan Community College, City College of New York, and graduated from Mercy College. Before her career as an actress started, Sidibe worked as a receptionist in Fresh Air Fund.  Sidibe’s debut in “Precious” won such awards as a Golden Globe, Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury and two Academy Awards. Later Gabourey acted in “Yelling to the Sky”, in which she had an opportunity to work with Victoria Mahoney, Zoe Kravitz, Jason Clarke, Tim Blake Nelson, Shareeka Epps and many others. Other movies that Gabourney has appeared in include “Tower Heist”, “White Bird in a Blizzard” and “Seven Psychopaths” among others. All these appearances not only made Sidibe more popular and acclaimed, but also positively effected the growth of Gabourney’s net worth.

In addition to her roles in movies, Gabourey has also appeared in several television shows: “Saturday Night Live”, “Glenn Martin DDS”, “American Dad” and “The Big C” to name a few. What is more, she is appearing in the television show “American Horror Story: Hotel”, following the original “American Horror Story: Coven”, and the first sequel “American Horror Story: Freak Show”, and  in which she works with Connie Britton, Evan Peters, Dylan McDermott, Taissa Farmiga, Zachary Quinto, Jessica Lange and many others. For the last three seasons she has starred in the TV series “Empire” as Becky Williams, so her net worth continues to rise.

Also Sidibe has appeared in music videos, including “Don’t Stop (Color on the Walls)” by Foster the People, and “(I Wanna) Channing All Over Your Tatum” by Jamie Foxx and Channing Tatum. These also added to Gabourey Sidibe’s net worth.

During her career, Sidibe has won several awards and gained many nominations. The awards that she has won include Chicago international Film Festival, Detroit Film Critics Society, Florida film Critics Circle, Hollywood Film Festiva and, Phoenix Film Critics Society Awards,  among others.

In her personal life, there is no hint of any romantic assignation(s), but she is very open about other aspects of her life, including behaviour, and likes and dislikes.

Quotes

#Quote
1I am the only consistent person in my life and so I better like myself, and I better love myself. And I really better know that I'm as beautiful as anyone else.
2Well, today I get a lot of people telling me how beautiful I am and it is very strange from going from the only person who ever believed that, to hearing that on a constant basis. And I feel like it's not like a weird cockiness thing, but because I had to train myself to believe it and I really do believe it, but I had to work at it. So, it's hard for me to say 'thank you' in a lot of ways because, I always thought of it as secret that only I knew, 'only I know I'm beautiful, you don't know what you're talking about.' It's very strange and I have to accept it.
3People are always like 'wow you are so strong,' but I think of it is my strength came from weakness in a lot of ways [...] because I just got so tired, it was like being beaten. That's what made me kind of start to stand up, for myself.
4When I was younger, anything that went wrong was the end of the world. But as I've gotten older, I've learned to stop myself and say, 'Hey , babe, calm down. Tomorrow there will be sun.'
5I don't know what it's like to be Precious, but--you know what?--she's not an alien to me. Not because she's a big girl. I've had to deal with difficult things in my life because of how I look. I have been made fun of for my dark skin by my older brother - he has lighter skin. In school the lighter-skinned or pretty girls would make fun of me. I don't know what it's like here or other places, but in the US it's definitely a big deal. Darker-skinned people sit at the back of the church, you know?
6I learned to love myself, because I sleep with myself every night and I wake up with myself every morning, and if I don't like myself, there's no reason to even live the life. I love the way I look. I'm fine with it. And if my body changes, I'll be fine with that.
