Gabourey Sidibe has transformed herself in recent months.

The Precious actress showed off a slimmer figure as she hit the Watch What Happens Live red carpet earlier this week.

The award-winning star looked almost unrecognisable as she posed up a storm on the red carpet in a form-fitting black top and red patterned skirt.

She flashed a huge grin at the cameras as she showed off her new figure and confident attitude.

Gabourey, known for her roles in Precious and American Horror Story, has been on a weight loss journey this year, and while she’s not revealed how much she’s lost – reports are claiming it could be up to 100lbs.

While she didn’t comment on her weight loss, the actress revealed that her size meant that she had a tough time making her way through high school.

“Junior high school is a battlefield,” she explained. “It sucked for me.”

She continued: “High school sucked for me. I didn’t get good with myself until I was like, 25 years old. Tell her to hold strong. Tell her to hold on, but it’ll be worth it, honestly.”

The star, who is part of a new fashion inclusive movement, went on to reveal how she’s managed to cope with being trolled on social media over her weight.

Back in 2010, radio host Howard Stern famously called the actress “the most enormous, fat black chick I’ve ever seen,” on his radio show.

Gabourey told Andy Cohen: “I got a lot of therapy in my life – I champion for therapy. Sit with yourself. You have to figure out what about yourself you love.”

“I’m still dealing with the haters,” added the star.
