Jennifer Hudson Says She Wasn’t Aware of Her Weight

“I didn’t even know I was considered plus-sized until I came to Hollywood,” the 29-year-old  2007 Oscar winner and Weight Watchers spokesperson, said her in recent interview of the September issue of Self magazine, “I thought I was the perfect size!”

That changed on a red carpet, when “an interviewer asked, ‘How does it feel to be plus-sized in Hollywood?’ I looked around, like, Who is she talking to? Oh, me? I’m plus-sized? In the neighborhood I’m from in Chicago, a 16 is normal. But in Hollywood, everyone looks exactly the same, so I stood out.”

Hudson decided to take action when she was pregnant with her now 2-year-old son, David.

“I thought, hold on – why doesn’t anybody know I’m pregnant?” she admits. “And I wanted to set a good example for my son.”

By sticking to a strict regimen of portion control and exercise, Hudson eventually lost 80 pounds and went from a size 16 to a 6 and says: “I’m prouder of my weight loss than my Oscar!”
