During a sit down with Bravo TV’s Andy Cohen on his chat show “Watch What Happens: Live”, “The Big C” actress Gabourey Sidibe revealed a disappointing encounter she had with Joan Cusack, star of Showtime’s “Shameless”.

“I met Joan Cusack, who is my favorite favorite. I love her… I was at some industry party, and she says, ‘Are you an actress?’ And I said, ‘Yeah!’ And she says, ‘Oh honey, you should really quit the business, it’s so image-conscious.”

Sidibe, whose turn in 2009’s “Precious” garnered an Academy Award Nomination and who recently started in the Eddie Murphy-helmed “Tower Heist”, said she was sure that Cusack meant well.
