In fact, in a recent interview the 32-year-old star made her dislike crystal clear, saying, "Red carpets are terrible."

"It’s so hard because I put so much thought into the perfect dress, shoes, jewelry," she explained to Zap2it. "Then I show up and I’m sweating because I’m nervous and it’s usually hot. All of the planning I put into looking presentable is wiped away because I’m all wet."

That said, Gabby isn't backing down from the challenge. The Precious star's career is only getting bigger as the years go on, and she's learning to deal with that dreaded carpet.

"I turn into the fear,” she said. “I know everything’s going wrong and I kind of make a joke of it." Laughter makes everything better!

Gabby also dished on what we can expect from her hilarious Empire character, Becky, explaining we'll get to see the sassy secretary "after hours" thanks to a love interest played by Mo McRae.

The more Becky the better, if you ask us! Just don't make her walk a red carpet...

Empire Season 2 airs on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on FOX.
