Gabourey Sidibe: "Who Hasn't Dated a Gay Dude?"

The actress reveals details about her ex.

Jason Collins' ex may have been shocked to hear the news that the NBA player is gay, but Gabourey Sidibe isn't. 
"Who hasn't dated a gay dude?" says the Precious actress to Access Hollywood. Sidibe then went on to reveal her own experience dating in the wrong pool. "He didn't tell me [he was gay], I just sort of figured it out," she says. "There were weird things he would say. He once tried on my heels...that was a pretty big indication!"
The Oscar nominee, who will guest star on American Horror Story next season, laughed about the relationship and chalked it up to a normal part of 21st century dating, but may be wanting to settle down now that she's turning 30 this week. 
"I never throw myself parties," she says of her plans for the big birthday. "But I am gonna take like a big, grown-up trip to Milan."

Now that she's single again, a fling with a hunky Italian could be just what the birthday girl ordered.
