Woww….innneresting!!!

Come to find out, Jennifer Hudson was originally sought after for the role of Precious!!!

But J-Hud turned it down because she was doing so well in her weight loss and didn't want to gain any back!

The Oscar-winner says:

I had [gained weight] with Effie [in Dreamgirls] and as much as I was moved by this film, I wanted to try a role that had nothing whatsoever to do with my weight.

Woww…we're trying to imagine the movie with her in it now! Hmm, yeah, we definitely think fate stepped in on this one.

Gabourey Sidibe killed it!! J-Hud did that girl a favor by turning the role down, riight??

    She looks GREAT; she should weigh about 4 ounces in about four months at the rate she's going………

    Not more talk about her weight.

    Too bad the weight loss didn't make her face prettier and wig look better.

    She also sings like hell!

    It's in pretty poor taste to say "I passed on that role" because it's a slam to the actor who wound up getting the role. It's the same as saying, "I was the #1 choice but I didn't want it, so it went to the 2nd or 3rd choice actor." Jennifer has often shown that she's self-centered and classless & this is another example.

    Her face looks way too big for her body now..She should gain some weight..

    Jennifer was right to pass on this role, if she had taken it, she would have been stuck in the role of fat actress for the rest of her career and that is not a good place to be. I don't know why this revelation should be branded "classless" and "self-centred"; Bette Midler has told the story about how she turned down Whoopi Goldberg's role in Sister Act and wasn't criticised for it. JHud is an amazing role model and entertainer and now she looks just amazing.

    She looks beautiful but she needs to not lose more. Her head is looking like a bobble head.

    she looks thinner than before. im starting to think she might turn into one of those REALLY skinny hollywood girls, therefore i like her a bit less because IMO shes giving into the hollywood ”thin is pretty” state of mind. but neways good for her for but dont go overboard. still dont like her that much tho



  9. 9

    she lost too much weight.



  10. 10

    Nothing looks as good as pretty feels. She can be 90 lbs and she will still look like a dog.

    I think she looks good. Her face doesn't look too skinny, her hand kind of does though.
