The witches of American Horror Story: Coven may prefer stabbing each other in the back, but Gabourey Sidibe reveals that, in real life, the cast members have one another's backs no matter what.
Sidibe was on Chelsea Lately Wednesday night to talk about a recent bar fight the AHS:C cast found themselves in during a night on the town in New Orleans. The whole thing started when a woman glitter-bombed Sarah Paulson, which led to a full-on brawl.

The stars headed up to the Top of the Standard to celebrate the upcoming premiere of Girls, HBO's racy new comedy about four twentysomething women finding their way in New York City. And it was a glamorous cocktail party that was a far cry from the sometimes challenging Brooklyn living depicted on the witty new show.
With plates of charcuterie and cheese on reserved tables, guests such as Claire Danes, Chloe Sevigny, Gabourey Sidibe, former Real Housewives of N.Y.C. star Kelly Bensimon and the show's producer Judd Apatow fanned out around the circular room, mingling in the intimate space and taking in the panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline.
Danes shared a moment with the show's stars Jemima Kirke and Zosia Mamet while Lena Dunham, the new show's writer, director and lead actress, hung out at her private table, chatting with Apatow and greeting well-wishers such as John Cameron Mitchell with a friendly handshake. At one point, Dunham headed to Le Bain, just across the hall from the main party space, where she chatted with Boardwalk Empire's Steve Buscemi, who was enjoying a plate of food from the nearby buffet.

When it comes to dating, Gabourey Sidibe has a pretty good idea what she wants in a guy.
"I like smart men," she tells PEOPLE at the Three16 Music Showcase in New York. "Smart men with grown up jobs who share my unusual sense of humor."
"People might be surprised to know I have a thing for nerds too," Sidibe, 27, says. "I am looking for someone who is so sweet, who offers to help me put on my shoes before an event."

The MTV Movie Awards will have a taste of the serious and the silly this year – at least in the best breakout star category.
The Hangover's hilarious Zach Galifianakas will be up against Oscar-nominated Gabourey Sidibe, star of the heart-wrenching Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire.
"The moment I heard it my heart jumped a little and, oddly, I have always wanted golden popcorn," Sidibe says of the nomination and the statuette that will be handed out at the live broadcast on June 6.

Gabourey Sidibe's year just keeps getting better!
The Academy Award-nominated actress, 26, has another prestigious showbiz title to add to her resume: Saturday Night Live host.
Sidibe's rep confirms to PEOPLE that the Precious star will be taking on hosting duties for the April 24 show. Unfortunately Sidibe's self-professed crush Justin Timberlake will not be the musical guest. Instead, NBC announced that psychedelic indie rockers MGMT will perform on the show.
It's been a whirlwind past few months for Sidibe who kicked off her career with Golden Globe, SAG and Oscar nods and a win at the Independent Spirit Awards.
In addition to Sidibe, NBC has also announced that Tina Fey will host an April 10 episode of SNL with musical guest Justin Bieber, and Ryan Phillippe will helm the April 17 broadcast with musical guest Ke$ha.

Oprah Winfrey asked to introduce Gabourey Sidibe at the Oscars because she sees the young actress as a kindred spirit.
"I saw myself in her," Winfrey told PEOPLE at the Governors Ball after Sunday's Academy Awards. "This whole roller coaster that happens to you when you're passionate about something – she wasn't even thinking of being an actress; she just auditioned. And now here she is, being nominated alongside Meryl Streep, who is the greatest actress in the world, with Sean Penn reading her name. Only in America."
Sidibe, 26, who was nominated for Best Actress for her first film, Precious, told PEOPLE she had no idea Winfrey would be introducing her. What did it mean to her? "It means that I just might be a movie star," Sidibe said.
