J-Hud’s new slimmy-trimmy and svelte body is causing a lot of chit chatter:
Jennifer Hudson looked stunning at the Oscars in her orange Atelier Versace gown. But even the statement hue couldn’t distract commentators from discussing her impressive weight-loss. The star, who has lost 80lb, has sparked furious debate since stepping out looking slimmer than ever on Sunday night. Nutritionists said that the 29-year-old had gone too far with her weight-loss regime, while a consensus among an Allure magazine writer’s friends found her to be ‘too thin’. Miss Hudson, who is a WeightWatchers ambassador, says her goals are ‘feeling good and being healthy, not fitting into a certain dress size.’
But in an interview with CBS News, dietitian Marisa Sherry said: ‘Jennifer Hudson’s appearance left me wondering how far she has pushed the Weight Watchers diet. ‘She looks good, but each time I see her she seems to be getting skinnier and skinnier and she’s now at the point where I would start to question how far she will go.’ Allure editorial assistant Alison Caporimo recalled comments made about the actress and singer at an Oscars party. She told how one friend mused: ‘I think she might be too thin, you know? I liked her better when she was in the middle: not overweight, but not too skinny.’
And Hollyscoop called Miss Hudson’s weight-loss ‘a disappearing act’. Its article read: ‘Jennifer Hudson has pulled a disappearing act on us. She was so svelte in her tangerine orange Versace dress at the Oscars, she nearly vanished when she turned to the side.’ But other commentators believe this all to be something of an overreaction. Jezebel believes that Miss Hudson is as slim as she is in the WeightWatchers advertisements, but it was just more noticeable in the revealing designer dress.
‘She wasn’t alarmingly thin, especially when compared to other actresses,’ the article read. ‘Apparently there’s a fine line between thin enough that you are no longer considered a failure at life (despite your Oscar and Grammy) and being so skinny, nutritionists must feign concern about your well-being in the press.’ It went on to ask if the root of this obsession with celebrities’ bodies was really rooted in concern for their health. ‘Are media commentators really hating on Hudson’s thinner body because they’re jealous or angry about her being subjected to society’s weight obsession?’ it asked.
SMH. She looks good…and as long as she’s healthy and happy, that’s all that should matter.
