Double Standard?

When Gabourey Sibibe burst on the Hollywood scene she caused quite a commotion. When she was nominated for every acting award possible including an Academy Award everyone was both elated and agast- She didn’t LOOK like a “Hollywood” actress but she was good and lovable. Then Howard Stern came out and said he didn’t understand why people were so excited about her.

He and co-host Robin Quivers went on to discuss the impossibility of Gabby finding any work in Hollywood after ‘Precious.’
“And Oprah’s lying and saying you’re going to have a brilliant career,” said Robin.
“Oprah’s another liar, a filthy liar,” said Stern. “She’s telling an enormous woman the size of a planet that she’s going to have a career.”

But why is it that no one says that about an actor like Jonah Hill?
Personally I think that there are many roles for her- she could play ummm let me see AN AMERICAN- the T’ruth of the matter is – that’s the majority of Americans look like her and we come in every shade and race! –

What so you think?
