Is she too thin or have we just gotten used to seeing Black women overweight? Jennifer Hudson has been taking some heat for being too thin from her fans who have watched her drop major pounds as the spokesperson for Weight Watchers. She has never been this thin and as photos emerged of the actress in a bra and jeans combo, fans had mixed reactions for the new look. Earlier in her career, she was told she was too big, now she is too thin; seems like no matter what she does people will have something to say.
Clearly she has lost a lot of weight and is not shy about showing off a new svelte look that goes very nicely with the newly cut coif hairstyle that seems to really accentuates very pronounced features of her face. However, according to alantablackstar.com the weight loss is for a new movie titled ”The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete”, where she plays a heroin addict named Gloria.
In October she told Huffington Post:
“They did request that I lose about 10 pounds for [the movie.] I don’t know that I did. [Laughs] But for ‘Winnie,’ I did. But for this one, it was just like, “Oh, if you could lose a little more weight.” But I did learn eventually that with heroin addicts, in doing our research, that it’s not necessarily like a physical thing where you’re too thin or too heavy. [Director George Tillman Jr.] had this thing where Gloria was so into her drugs that she sacrificed the food, like, “I don’t want to eat, I just want to get high.”
Hudson isn’t the only star to receive a negative response after weight loss. Rapper/actor 50 cent met the same fate while filming the movie “Things Fall Apart”. Fans weren’t too happy with his drop in weight, and some even said his image had been Photoshopped. What are you thoughts BWDW? Is she too thin or do you think that this is the size that most women are actually aspiring to be at with striving for weight loss goals?
