Jennifer Hudson Is Prouder Of Her Weight Loss Than Her Oscar

“I can’t care about whether I’m too big for some or too small for others. It goes back to how you feel about yourself. I like me the way I am. For anyone who wants to lose: Dude, if I can do it, you can do it. And for those who want to stay the same, I hope I can be an example to you, too; I was proud of being a big girl … It’s like my mother said: ‘Well, honey, when there is a will, there is a way.’ You have to want it. I’m prouder of my weight loss than my Oscar! I hope it has inspired people.”

Jennifer Hudson talks to SELF magazine about her dramatic weight loss over the past two years, and about how many fans have criticized her for getting too skinny. While I like her response to that, I can’t believe she said she’s prouder of her weight loss than her Oscar. Lots of people will lose a dramatic amount of weight over the course of their life. Very few will win a little golden guy. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »

Jennifer Hudson Loved Her Old Body, Too

“I never thought I was overweight. I thought my old look was pretty normal. That was how all the girls looked growing up in Chicago. I didn’t have any problem with it. It makes me smile to think back to myself when I did ‘Dreamgirls’ with Beyonce. I did see all these women in Hollywood, all very slim and I thought, ‘Wow, these ladies are very into themselves.’ I loved that I stood out in a room. You knew when you saw this woman it was Jennifer Hudson.”

Jennifer Hudson on her body image before her dramatic weight loss. I love that she said this. I think that’s a sign of true self-esteem if you can approve of yourself at every size and shape. She does look fantastic, but I’m wondering if she’s implying that she’s really into herself now that she’s one of those slim Hollywood ladies or if she no longer feels like she stands out in a room.

Oscar Fashions For the Four-Legged Set

When Wendy Williams isn’t smoking Slim Jims (no seriously, that’s her preferred snack of choice) she’s dreaming up ways to humiliate both Hollywood celebrities and animals. Hence, Williams created couture doggie gowns emulating several Oscar attendees on a recent episode of “The Wendy Williams Show.” Like this Shar Pei named Knox, who sports a stunning orange gown, just like Jennifer Hudson’s Versace. To the dogs, we say. [People Pets] Keep reading »

Jennifer Hudson Has A Shopping Addiction

“I have a serious shopping problem now. Each city we go to, my suitcase won’t hold my new clothes, so we have to box them up and ship them home. Then I get back and want to try on everything I bought, so clothes are just everywhere. It got to a point where I could barely get in my bedroom. And when did I realize I had a problem? Well, my bed is a canopy. I had nowhere else to throw the clothes. So I threw them on top of the canopy!”

Jennifer Hudson can’t stop shopping after going from a size 16 to a 4 … and she gives me a glimpse into what my shopping addiction can turn into. [ShowbizSpy via Racked] Keep reading »

“OK!” Magazine Co-Opts Bullying For Stars “Bullied For Their Weight”

The effects of bullying are in the news everywhere lately, from the teen girl, Megan Meier, who killed herself after being harassed on MySpace, to Rutgers freshman Tyler Clementi and the spate of copycat suicides that followed him. As crushing as the reports of each new suicide can be, I’m also grateful that the mainstream media is finally paying attention to the issues that lay underneath bullying — like an article about Clementi that made last week’s cover of People magazine. Any conversation about bullying is an opportunity to make people think about their own use of intimidation and the abuse of power.

But I take issue with OK! magazine’s recent cover depicting Jennifer Love Hewitt and Jennifer Hudson under the tag line “Bullied For Their Weight: They’ll Never Call Me Fat Again!” Um, skinny, beautiful, rich women are the two victims you could come up with for a bullying story? And they stuck it to their bullies by going on a juice diet? Yeah, that’s the message we want to send: capitulate to the bullies and you won’t be given crap anymore! If some jerks is calling you a heifer, drop from size 16 to size 4. That’ll show ‘em. Keep reading »

Quotable: Jennifer Hudson Is Thinking Of Shaving Her Head

“I am actually thinking about shaving my head…because I feel I’ve got a good structure. My cousin’s a beautician and she’s always saying, ‘You could wear any hairdo.’ So I’m thinking, what if I shave my hair? Not completely off, but low. I think that would be so hot. With my diamond studs? But with a cut like that, your face has to be made up at all times.”

– Jennifer Hudson is considering a drastic makeover. After seeing how amazingly Solange looked with a buzz cut, I say go for it! [Just Jared] Keep reading »

Quotable: Jennifer Hudson Speaks About The Murders Of Her Family Members

“It’s all a blur. It was surreal. It was like I was outside of myself. For almost two weeks straight, [I was] inside one room with just family and friends coming in and out. I prayed when I’d get up in the morning and prayed before I laid down at night. … I feel like I’ve lived about three or four different lives. [My son] reminds me of my nephew. [He] makes me feel like the most special person on earth. I want him to get the same love and the same upbringing my mother gave us.”

—Jennifer Hudson talks for the first time about the tragic murder of her mother, brother, and nephew in 2008, and how having a son of her own has helped her heal, on VH1′s “Behind the Music” [People] Keep reading »

Jennifer Hudson Decided To Lose Weight For Her Son

Weight Watchers is winning the spokesperson battle with its competitors by signing an Oscar and Grammy winner. Jennifer Hudson announced today that she’s been losing the weight she gained during her pregnancy — and then some — using the point-counting program.

Jennifer told “Good Morning America” that she wanted to make a change toward a healthier lifestyle for her son, David:

“It’s about the progress and just being comfortable, although I was very comfortable with myself before. It’s just OK, I have a child now, and I want to set a great example for him — make better life choices, health choices, and just create a good example for him growing up.”
