Jennifer Hudson Never Knew What the Oscars Were Growing Up
Jennifer Hudson takes the microphone on the cover of Net-a-Porter’s The Editmagazine’s latest issue.
Here’s what the 32-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:
On not knowing about the Oscars: “I didn’t know what the Oscars was…where we come from, we don’t know anything about that world. If you see it on TV, it’s like, ‘Oh, people in fancy suits and ties.’”
On her success: “It is so bizarre to me to say, ‘OK, let me go email Alicia [Keys], let me go email Beyoncé, let me go talk to Oprah…’ For so long I sat and admired them; now I’m among them,”
On filming Sex and the City: “That was my first time filming in New York, I was in the biggest whirlwind…Walking on the set, I was like Louise [her character] – I’m just this real normal girl who all these crazy things happen to.”
On her weight loss: “It is still very fresh in my mind, being a plus-size girl in Hollywood. Now fittings are so much more fun.”
