Jennifer Hudson wants to clear up some rumors!
In an in-depth interview in the December/January issue of Ebony magazine, the Dreamgirls star and Weight Watchers spokesperson denies that she ever told Joy Behar that she was a size zero – and RadarOnline.com has the details.
“I’m going to finally address that size-zero thing that Joy [Behar] said on The View,” Jennifer begins. “Hell, I wasn’t even on the show. I never said I was a size zero.”
After the talk show host detailed an encounter she had with Jennifer during a shopping trip, the actress reveals that there was a tremendous amount of backlash.
“I got crucified by I don’t know how many people who cussed me out because they said I’m putting out the wrong message and telling people to be a size zero. I got called every name under the sun and was told, ‘You should be ashamed of yourself for talking about being that size.’ Well, honey, when I do say I’m that size, then give me that speech. I never said that.”
“People say I’m always dwelling on my size. No, I’m not! Everyone else is always dwelling on my size.”
Jennifer, who has lost 80 pounds in 2 years on the weight loss program, isn’t the only Hudson on Weight Watchers – 75 of her family members have lost more than 2,000 pounds on it!
