iGabourey Sidibe*Gabourey Sidibe — who recently revealed the results of her weight-loss surgery — has opened up to Nylon Magazine about the phone sex operator job she held before she hit it big in 2009 with “Precious.”

“I was actually pretty good at it,” she told People, adding that the line of work helped prep her for her acting career. “I knew that when people were asking me, ‘So have you had any acting training?’ my acting school was on the phone, pretending to be some super young 21-year-old college girl named Melody. I know that was my acting! But I felt too stupid to say it.”

Sidibe, who is on a press tour promoting her new book, “This Is Just My Face,” also revealed to Nylon that she still turns on her phone-sex voice when ordering room service.

Gabby’s Nylon conversation then turned to “when politics and rape culture collide.”

“At this point, are we going to be able to fix society? We f***ed it up enough with Trump. It’s over. He’s not my president,” Sidibe told the mag. “But you really have to be aware in Trump’s America, OK? I think about freshman orientation in college when it’s like, ‘Ladies, look to your left and look to your right. One in four of you are going to be raped, so be careful.’ F*** that. You need to tell them to stop raping us. I don’t get that narrative of making us responsible if we are raped. After we are assaulted, putting us on trial. It’s just problematic, man.”

The actress hasn’t been sexually assaulted, but she recalls being told as a child that boys who were mean and nasty to her had crushes on her.

“What the f***? That’s low-key rape culture and that doesn’t work anymore,” she explained. “We need to make boys responsible for that s***. Instead, what we do is say, ‘Boys will be boys,’ and that’s not OK. But if it really happened to me, I think I would f***ing murder someone.”

Sidibe’s upcoming book hits shelves this May.
