With a hit movie and an Oscar nomination for Precious under her belt, Gabourey Sidibe’s dreams are coming true. But there’s one thing she hasn’t gotten: Her dream date.
“I want to make Justin Timberlake and [The Hurt Locker actor] Anthony Mackie fight it out for the honor of being my date,” Sidibe told the Canadian entertainment TV show eTalk. “I’m just going to throw them in the ring and make them do it!”
But apparently the throw-down didn’t happen. Instead, Sidibe will be accompanied by someone even more special to the actress. “I’m bringing my mom,” she told PEOPLE Thursday at Eve Ensler’s annual V-Day luncheon to raise awareness about violence against women.
Search for a Gown
With her date dilemma settled, Sidibe is now focusing on what to wear. “My stylist sent me sketches, but I haven’t looked at them yet,” she says. “I certainly won’t go for a daring dress. I don’t like to do more than one color, or stripes, or patterns. I’ll certainly pick something classic.”
