Sidibe rose to fame after starring in the 2009 movie “Precious” and has also had roles in “Tower Heist” alongside Ben Stiller and Showtime’s “The Big C” alongside Laura Linney. Wilson has had recent turns in “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” and “Pitch Perfect,” released on October 5. McCarthy stars in the CBS sitcom “Mike and Molly” and a few years ago, starred in “Gilmore Girls.” Beth Ditto is the lead singer of Gossip and is a prominent body image advocate. Adele is one of the most successful female recording artists of all time, with several Grammy awards and albums that are consistently at the top of the charts.
