Along with funnymen Eddie Murphy and Ben Stiller, Gabourey Sidibe is starring in the new comedy flick, Tower Heist.
The 28-year-old Oscar nominee talked about hitting on Murphy while on the set and not knowing the cameras were rolling, and in this week’s People Sidibe says, “I have a comical crush on Eddie and I probably always will. I’m a girl that likes to laugh — and he is someone who is incredibly funny.”
While preparing for her role as a maid with a Jamaican accent, the actress says she practiced with her Jamaican friend during filming.
In regards to appearing in a comedy, Sidibe is clear, saying, “I believe that I’m hilarious.”
