J-Hud’s Mag Cover + New Song

Singer/actress Jennifer Hudson is looking super svelte on the recent cover of Angeleno Magazine.

Jennifer, who is in the midst of promoting her new film “Winnie Mandela,” was shot by famed photographers Gomillion & Leupold back in July while she was in Los Angeles looking to purchase a new home.

In the accompanying interview, Jennifer speaks on her red hot acting career (she has 3 movies coming out this year), her true feelings on last season’s American Idol judging debacle, and why she finally decided to make L.A. her permanent home.

Excerpts and photo shoot below.

Jennifer on the magnitude of being called on to play activist shero Winnie Mandela: It was intimidating to play Winnie after seeing how much she means to the people in South Africa. To some she’s an angel and to some she’s Satan, but either way, woo! The strength that woman possesses is amazing. We put so much into the story, and it took a lot out of us.”

Jennifer on if there is a negative side to fame: I always look at everyday people and think: They have no idea how blessed they are; how good they have it that they can do whatever they choose.”

Jennifer on her support of Obamacare: “Obama is so hands-on and aware. He’ll tell stories off the top of his head about people who’ve written to him with their health issues, and he’ll remember their names and every detail. He cares enough to know.”

Jennifer on playing a drug addicted mother in the film The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete: “It terrified me to play that part because I had no reference point. I’m 31 and I’ve never, ever, ever had a drink or done a drug in my entire life. I stick with Diet Coke and Crystal Light and water.” [Former drug addicts were eventually brought in to coach Hudson]

Jennifer on American the Idol bloodbath that saw judges Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey and Randy Jackson let go: “It was a very chaotic and unprofessional work place, I here. The producers probably did what they felt was in the best interest of the show moving forward.”
