Gabourey Sidibe wants Justin Timberlake
First time Oscar-nominee and star of Precious, Gabourey Sidibe, is already lining up potential dates for the Academy Awards on March 7, and she’s got her eye on Justin Timberlake.
The 26-year-old breakout actress was ecstatic to learn of her Best Actress nomination on Tuesday (Feb 2) and her excitement continues as she searches for the perfect date for the big night. So far, the two fellas making the cut are Justin Timberlake and The Hurt Locker actor, Anthony Mackie.
“I want to make Justin Timberlake and Anthony Mackie fight it out for the honour of being my date. I'm just going to throw them in the ring and make them do it!”
But Gabourey revealed that the SexyBack singer is definitely her first choice making a statement to the singer on Canada’s eTalk, “Justin, if you're not doing anything on that night, maybe you could be my date or something. It's fine. No pressure.”
