Jennifer Hudson Turned Down ‘Precious’ Role

In Jennifer Hudson’s new book I Got This: How I Changed My Ways and Lost What Weighed Me Down, the actress opens up about why she turned down a role in the Academy Award nominated 2009 film Precious.

“I had [gained weight] with Effie [in Dreamgirls],” she explains, as excepted by Uptown Magazine. “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.

Instead, Hudson went on to star in Sex and the City with Sarah Jessica Parker and lost 80 lbs. using Weight Watchers.
