Guess Which Celeb Gabourey Sidibe Would Sleep With (And Make Sure She’d Wrap It Up Because He’s Fertile!)
Gabourey Sidibe is officially the dirty 30 (as of May 6) and Wendy Williams invited the actress to plenty of dirty talk during her appearance on her talk show today.
Wendy put the upcoming co-star of “American Horror Story” in her hot seat and didn’t waste any time getting turning up the heat with four degrees of questions. By the time Wendy got to the 40 degree mark, she hit Gabourey with this interesting quest into her thoughts on her former male co-stars: “Out of all of your former co-stars — Eddie Murphy, Ben Stiller, Lenny Kravitz — who would you marry, who would you sleep with, and who would you run over with your car?” Here’s what Gabby said:
“I would marry Lenny Kravitz because I feel like he’s a good strong Christian man – with his own island. I’d probably sleep with Eddie Murphy, but I’d wrap it up because he’s fertile. And I guess I’d hit Colin Ferrell with my car—nothing personal but I don’t know him like that.”
Poor Colin Ferrell, he wasn’t even supposed to be in the discussion. But more importantly, Eddie Murphy?? To be fair, it’s not like Gabby had the best choices to begin with, but I think I would’ve had to choose Lenny Kravitz twice, or switch my answers around. I’m pretty sure Eddie could buy his own island if he wanted to too. But, shout out to Gabby for the safe sex plug. Always gotta wrap it up.
Something you ladies might be able to relate with more is the answer Gabourey gave for her 100 degree question of who she would have a one-night stand with. The answer? Ryan Gosling. Good luck with that, she might have to fight off a few hundred thousand people to get to that one, including Eva Mendes.

We know that talent runs in the family of many of our favorite celebrities – many we see on a daily basis. But I bet there are a few you didn’t know…shoot, there are a couple I didn’t know myself! Check out the next few pages and see how many of them rang a bell for you!
I remember back in the day when Eddie Murphy used to be the beez-neez.
Everyone had seen most of his movies (with the exception of The Golden Child probably), and if I said to you, “What is this? Velvet?” and you didn’t know what I was referring to, you received the stank face. Murphy has pretty much done it all in his career: stand up, action films, the buddy-cop film, comedies where he has piled on the make up and disguises, and he has even done a musical (Dreamgirls anyone?). But sometime around and after his Oscar nomination for Dreamgirls, Murphy got lost in a sea of forgettable family films (aside from the never say die Shrek franchise) with thin plots and little demand. Did anyone actually go see “Meet Dave”?
But now Murphy is back, and he’s back in a role he knows all to well from past work early in his career: the bad guy used to do some good. Tower Heist is based around a staff of hard-working men and women who hold things down in a luxurious high-rise in NYC (near Columbus Circle to be exact for folks who live here). Their leader is Josh Kovacs (Ben Stiller), the honorable building manager. When a wealthy, Wall-Street working resident of the high-rise named Arthur (Alan Alda) dupes Kovacs into allowing the man to invest his and the rest of the staff’s pensions, they find themselves caught up in a shady Ponzi scheme. More than a little heated by the deception and the fact that Arthur looks like he’s going to go free for his actions, Kovacs teams up with small-time crook Slide (Eddie Murphy, of course) to help him and a few other building workers get their money back the hood way: by robbing the businessman’s penthouse on the top floor of that same luxurious high-rise.
Murphy’s role in the film is to show the men the ropes: how to be good thieves and how to work a good bobby pin–and not for your hair. And he is good at his task seeing as how he’s got a long rap sheet for thievery and living reckless. But this time around, he teams up with Kovacs not only to get his own cut of the stolen mula, but also to help the naive staff exact some proper revenge. You’ve seen Murphy play a role like this in Trading Places, you’ve seen it in 48 Hours, so why should you see it in Tower Heist? Maybe because after nearly 30 years since his first film, which was 48 Hours, it’s nice to see traces of the old Eddie Murphy. No more talking like “Donkey” in Shrek or watching kids in Daddy Day Care, Murphy is back to his old reckless self, talking crazy, stealing everyone’s attention even when he shows up in small scenes, and just straight up being the loud-mouth guy we’ve been missing all these years. On top of that, the rest of the cast in this film does some really good work. Especially Stiller, actor Michael Peña, and of course, Gabourey Sidibe. She and Murphy share some chemistry and a little bit of dirty talk in the movie as well.
I know going to the movies is expensive, and a gal is NOT trying to waste her dollars. However, you’ll be pleasantly surprised and delighted by Tower Heist and the new and improved Eddie Murphy (which is somewhat like the old). There are a lot of actually very hilarious moments in the film, as well as a fair share of “that couldn’t be me” type moments as well. And unlike other comedies that drag on too long these days, the film is under two hours, so you never find yourself lost or bored. So yes, to everyone’s surprise, Tower Heist is actually a good film, and a good time at the movies. Check-check it out!
