Dreamgirl: Jennifer Hudson works her curves as her dual career blossoms
02 APRIL 2010
Since her stint on American Idol back in 2004, Jennifer Hudson has topped the music charts and also established herself on the acting scene with roles in Dreamgirls, Sex and the City and The Secret Life of Bees.
And now the Oscar-winning mum-of-one has another string to add to her bow as the face of an international weight loss company.
This week, Jennifer, 28, showed off her slim-line figure – she gave birth to baby David in August 2009 – as she arrived in Times Square to appear on Good Morning America.
Wearing skinny jeans, a beige top and a stylish black blazer, she happily signed autographs for fans before heading inside.
Following in the footsteps of Sarah Ferguson and Jim Carrey’s actress love Jenny McCarthy, Jennifer has been announced as a spokesperson for WeightWatchers. And she credits her fantastic shape to the company’s points plan as well as regular exercise.
“It’s a lifestyle change, not a diet,” she said. “I don’t really diet as such. I actually get up and work hard every day.”
“I make sure I eat right and just make sure I stay focused. It is about being consistent and sticking with it.”
Meanwhile, on the professional front, Jennifer is certainly keeping busy.
She has revealed she is about ten songs into the recording process on her new album, and the actress, who won an Academy Award for her film debut in 2006 film Dreamgirls, is also gearing up to play Nelson Mandela’s wife Winnie in a 2011-released drama.
