Precious star Gabourey Sidibe has added late-night Tv host to her resume after hosting Chelsea Handler's show Chelsea Lately.

The actress, who begged for the chance to host the show during a recent appearance, realised her dream on Tuesday (04Mar14) as she stood-in for Handler and joked about romancing Leonardo DiCaprio at a post-Oscars party.

Sidibe opened the show by telling the studio audience, "Let me just say, Leonardo DiCaprio doesn't only date supermodels.

"Also, a message to Leo: 'Please stop texting me boo. I told you one night and one night only'."
