In the latest issue of “Good Housekeeping,” an even slimmer Jennifer Hudson looks back on the road it took to become the larger than life star that she is today. Inside the mag she reveals that she was often rejected early on because of her big size.
She also talks about her baby being unable to recognize her in old footage. Sweetly, as if it isn’t enough that her husband is buff and fine, Jennifer reveals that her fiance David also goes hard for her on Valentines Day.
A FEW EXCERPTS:
On her former size:
“Early on, I remember one of the musical directors telling me that everything about me was too big – my voice, my size, and my personality. [I asked her,] ‘Isn’t that what being a star is?’ Stars are larger than life!”
On her son,David Jr.:
“What’s funny is that he’s never known me overweight. If he sees a clip of the old Jennifer from Dreamgirls, he doesn’t know who it is.”
On her fiance,David, and his Valentine’s Day rituals:
“Let me tell you, this man goes bananas. When I wake up that morning in February, I can’t see through the house because he’s got confetti and balloons everywhere, rose petals on the floor, and candles in every single room.”
On satisfying cravings:
“I’ll find a calm, peaceful moment, and I’ll sit back and eat my chocolate, which I make sure is really good quality, too. Quality over quantity!”
