Over the holidays, it was reported that singer/actress/Weight Watchers pitchwoman Jennifer Hudson turned down the titular role in Precious due to the fact that she would have had to gain weight in order to portray the role of a put upon and abused, overweight teen. Given Hudson's recent weight loss and role as a WW spokeswoman, it's not a shock to think Hudson didn't want to go that route. However, Hudson chose to address and shoot down the rumors.
TMZ reports that Hudson said, "I turned it down because I felt it was just too graphic for me at that time." She also had told Dateline that she passed on the role because she "would have had to be the big girl again." So what's the truth? Those statements seem at odds.
