I really have to give credit to anyone who pursues a career in Hollywood. Because it seems like no matter how much confidence that you have in yourself, in both talent and physically, they’ll tell you the opposite in order to make you into what they want. It seems that that was the case with Jennifer Hudson. According to E! Online, in an upcoming interview with Oprah Winfrey on Oprah’s Next Chapter Jennifer talks about not knowing she was a “big girl” and her reaction to it.
“Already I had lost like 60 pounds then, I was exercising everyday I got down to a size 12 and I got to Hollywood and they were like, ‘How do you feel being the big girl?’” Hudson shares with Oprah Winfrey. “And I was like, ‘Who are they talking to?’ I literally looked around like this is normal, this is fine, this is average, where I come from it’s totally fine, so I couldn’t understand.”
SMH. Jennifer also talked about getting lip injections. And the worst part is, is that she didn’t even WANT them! She was forced to get it:
“When I did Dreamgirls I actually had to get my dent right here injected because it was affecting the lighting,” she says pointing at her top lip. “And when I got it done the doctor was like ‘I do not want to do this do you realize people come in here and pay to have the lips you have naturally.’ And I was like, ‘I don’t want to but I have to for the movie!’”
The full interview will air on OWN this Sunday, September 9th, at 9 PM Eastern.
