Jennifer Hudson a Size Zero

Jennifer Hudson a Size Zero

The incredibly shrinking singer still isn't used to new body.

Published August 7, 2011

In an April interview with the U.K. magazine Grazia, Jennifer Hudson says, “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.”


She then says she was discriminated against by the entertainment industry, simply because she was plus size, Hello Beautiful reports. “In this slim world I do now realize I was being discriminated against. I’m offered more parts. There is much more excitement about me now.”


Today, the 30-year-old singer who won an Oscar for her role as the plus-size Effie White in 2006's Dreamgirls, is a size zero and all over the media. 


Even though she’s been a Weight Watchers spokesperson since last year, the weight loss is still taking some getting used to. The Huffington Post says J-Hud tells The View’s Joy Behar, "I feel like they’re talking to someone else” when her new size is the topic of discussion.
