Weight Watchers spokesperson Jennifer Hudson was spotted on the streets on NYC this morning (January 11, 2012).
Remember those reports that Hudson turned down the role of Precious because she didn’t want to gain back the weight that she’d lost at that time?
J-Hud says her weight was NOT a factor when she turned down the role of “Precious” but there was ANOTHER factor that rubbed her the wrong way.
Jenn explains to TMZ:
“I did NOT turn down the role because of the weight thing … I turned it down because I felt it was just too graphic for me at that time.”
Hudson’s explanation contradicts what she told “DatelineNBC” earlier this week, when she said she turned it down because she “would have had to be the big girl again.”
When Lester Holt asked if her decision to turn down “Precious” was motivated by fear of being typecast as a heavy actress … Hudson said, “I don’t like the idea of being boxed into anything.”
