Is Jennifer Hudson Too Thin???

- By Bossip Staff

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.

    No she is not too thin, I love how hollywood will praise some actresses for being so thin and healthy. But they want to perpetuate the black women are big stereotype. That’s how they want to see them, big and friendly. Before Natalie Portman got pregnant she was even skinnier than J-hud. And they always talked about how to get her shape. Apparently she is on a strict vegan diet.


      Totally agree with both you and serverine. Jennifer has added years to her life by simply changing her dietary habits and exercise… just plain common sense!

      I’d love to see her become a weight loss role model for African American kids. Love for her to hookup with Mrs. Obama and the Presidents Council for Physical Fitness. Today, a majority of our children are overweight with adult ailments (high blood pressure, diabetes, etc…). Since parents are dropping the ball, let someone else show them how to put down the chips, big macs, etc… and pick up some fresh fruit, veggies and do some exercise!

      She looks great!

      Fat mammies? Isn’t that what black people call “thick?”

    • Cher

      She looks great! Jen, you keep doing what you are doing. If you haven’t reached your plateau yet, you will reach it shortly. I was never a Big person, but I was up there at 157 lbs, and that was fat for me and all I decided to do was “portion sizes”, and I know that’s what they teach on these programs and it works. Then there is the exercise part of it. Now I am 135 lbs and I am trying very hard to maintain that, but Jen, girl…. you look terrific.

  • r u serious

    No she looks good. Also I agree with I’m ze true silver hare.

  • hotta than a lotta

    she is pretty skinny now but im sure last year’s headline was ‘Is she too heavy?’ Give her a break!

  • BritishGirl

    @ I’m ze- No she’s not too small i agree. I just think the media expect all black women to be really curvy or just plain obese. Jen is at a healthy weight, even smaller than the white celebrities like Gwyneth P and the like. It obviously offends them that we can also be slender when we eat right and exercise. So many double standards in society! Makes me sick!

  • daahlingnikki

    this is a case of damned if you do and damned if you don’t…

    • tg

      Couldn’t agree more with you. Dang shame

    • snapper

      I agree with you. Last year to heavy, this year to skinny DAMN!

  • mouthpiece

    • nonya

      Weight is the word not wait, but I completely agree.

    • mouthpiece

  • mimi

    She needs to take her fat friend with her….THAT should be cause for concern. Jhud looks fine right now!

  • KT

    She’s so fine now yummy

  • It's Me

    Yeah she getting too small. Put some weight on baby girl….

  • Slide Like a Fresh Pair of Gators

    Is Jennifer Hudson Too Thin?


    In my opinion she’s like 10-15 lbs too thin…

    AND what I don’t like about her weight loss is that she’s done it just by eating less and not in combination with exercising…

    You can tell because her arms STILL have a lot of fat on them…

    It’s kinda weird considering her husband works out a lot, is physically fit and is a wrestler if I’m not mistaken…

    She needs to work out also but not to the point that she looks like Cameron Diaz with the c0ck diesel muscle bound look…

  • Mrs. Rance

    Definately not. She is not even as thin as most Hollywood actresses.

  • daboss912

    Hey if she likes it I love it. At the end of the day its her body and shes the one that has 2 live in it.

  • aboveitall

    Yea. I thought that a while ago. she looked like she was getting too thin and she dropped that weight fast. I hate to say it, but when I look at her I think something else is going on with her emotionally.

  • Kimjc15

    Dang it was a problem when she was big,now its a problem she’s small….

  • Mz Goody

    Not thin just too damn ugly

  • jazzi jo the ho

  • lt

    i think she looks great. she is either a size 6 or an 8. as long as she’s happy with her weight and the way she looks that’s all that matters. people gonna talk no matter what.

  • whoopie

    When did a size six or even a four become too thin for Hollywood…..the jealous haters are the ones more offended.

  • Sweet Sable

    She looks just fine! She’s of average size now. I think all she needs to do is tone up (It will help raise her breasts).

  • Mak

    I think that she’s trying to take Whit’s place, when Whit was younger. But, Whit was naturally thin. Jen, if aight, as long as she stays where she is. The problem with skinny people is that they dont understand how it feels to be overweight.

  • Ellie

    She’s no where near too thin. I agree with the poster who said that Hollywood just likes black women to be fat. Sadly some blacks as well. I believe the dress she wore to the Oscars was a size 6…How is that too thin?

  • Mystyri



  • macori

    She looks good to me. Especially if that’s the weight she wants to be at.
    Click my name and don’t be ashamed.
