Gabourey Sidibe is NYLON magazine's April covergirl and the star is revealing some surprising secrets about her personal life. The "Precious" stars reveals in the magazine, that before landing the 2009 role that led to an Oscar nomination she worked as a phone-sex operator.
“I was actually pretty good at it,” she told People, a job she says actually helped her acting career. “I knew that when people were asking me, ‘So have you had any acting training?’ my acting school was on the phone, pretending to be some super young 21-year-old college girl named Melody. I know that was my acting! But I felt too stupid to say it.”
