Gabourey Sidibe & Dakota Fanning Share Cover of “The Size Issue”
The newest issue of V Magazine (issue #63) has finally hit the newsstands with two fabulous actors to celebrate the body image– “The Size Issue” cover models feature “Precious” actress Gabourey Sidibe and Dakota Fanning. For sometime, we’ve posted images from the issues included a lovely sect of pictures with two models wearing identical outfits; One model– plus size superl model Crystal Renn, while the other, is traditional model size.
So, its not surprise that they are to covers with two very body types. Both Dakota Fanning and Gabourey Sidibe were shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin and each discussed her entrance into into young Hollywood and of course their body image.
Gabby, says “Growing up, there weren’t a lot of actresses and singers who looked like me. There were no real times that I thought maybe I can do it, until Mo’Nique came along. She’s a plus-sized woman who didn’t care about one day being skinny. All my life I’ve been hearing that I’ll never amount to anything until I am skinny. And she disapproved everything that everyone has ever told me.”
While Dakota says of experience “I think that when you’re in the public eye, you automatically become a role model, because people are reading about you and looking at pictures of stuff you’ve done. But, you know, no one’s perfect, everyone makes mistakes. I have made mistakes and I will make mistakes. I’m only human.”
The issue is available on newsstands now.
