Gabourey Sidibe has revealed she got into trouble with her dad for slapping Chris Rock.

The Oscar-nominated Precious star joked that the funnyman couldn't keep his hands off her at the third annual Black Women In Hollywood lunch in Beverly Hills.

"As I go up to get my award in a room where my dad is, because he's one of my dates, Chris Rock grabbed my b**t with both of his hands, and then I slapped him back - I didn't think too much of it at all but my dad was so mad," she told Entertainment Tonight.

She added: "Some dudes gotta have it - it's my own fault for being too damn fine."

Gabourey said she's almost ready for the Academy Awards on March 7 - save for some earrings.

"I need earrings. Once I get earrings I will be ready."

Queen Latifah was honoured with the Power Award at the glitzy bash, while Avatar actress Zoe Saldana won the Star To Watch gong.

"I'm happy they're being honoured for their fantastic work and I just hope it continues. They deserve to be recognised for the work that they've done, which is how it should be and how it always should have been," said Queen Latifah.

Zoe added: "It's another excuse to celebrate each other in every shape and form. I cherish it so much and it humbles me so much."
