Gabourey Sidibe - Gabourey Sidibe laughs off Golden Globes weight jibes

Gabourey Sidibe has dismissed criticism of her appearance at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday (12.01.14).

The plus-sized actress - who shot to fame with her Oscar-nominated lead role in 2009 film 'Precious' - was subjected to mean comments about her weight on Twitter after walking the red carpet at the Hollywood awards ceremony, but she was able to laugh at her critics.

Gabourey tweeted: ''To people making mean comments about my GG pics, I mos def cried about it on that private jet on my way to my dream job last night. #JK (sic)''

The 30-year-old star - who sported a floor-length silver gown to the Golden Globes - was praised for her witty response to the criticism, with nearly 25,000 people retweeting her message.

She later added: ''Yay! Everyone is so wonderful and supportive of my shade! This might be a problem down the line. Thank you! #notmyjetthough #imnotthatfancy (sic)''

The 'American Horror Story: Coven' actress - who also attended the FOX Golden Globes after-party at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California - has had to deal with a lot of mean criticism about her weight over the years, but she has always insisted she is happy with her size.

She previously said: ''I've never been a small girl. One day I had to sit down with myself and decide that I loved myself no matter what my body looked like and what other people thought about my body. I got tired of feeling bad all the time. I got tired of hating myself.''
