Quotables: Jennifer Hudson Didn’t Know She Was Overweight

“I didn’t even know I was considered plus-sized until I came to Hollywood. I thought I was the perfect size! … [Later, though] an interviewer asked, ‘How does it feel to be plus-sized in Hollywood?’ I looked around, like, Who is she talking to? Oh, me? I’m plus-sized? In the neighborhood I’m from in Chicago, a 16 is normal. But in Hollywood, everyone looks exactly the same, so I stood out.”

As you all know, Hudson dropped eighty pounds shortly thereafter this fateful meeting, and lost ten dress sizes. (Seriously, holy crap, ten dress sizes.)

While this is all well and good, now that she’s exercising, and thus, much healthier, do you think she lost the weight for the right reasons? I mean, she was apparently just as confident (if not more confident) before the interviewer’s comment – she didn’t even “know” that she was plus-sized. Frankly, though she’s obviously thinner these days and looks great, I don’t particularly think there was anything wrong with the way she looked before, but hey. Who am I to say?

  • As long as one’s weight isn’t causing health problems, whether it is because they are too fat or too skinny, who are we to judge? If they are happy, it’s all good.

  • I thought she looked great before too. But as much as I hate to say it, you do get to wear prettier clothes when you’re thinner. Designers suck!
