She may be playing a heroin addicted mother in the new flick The Inevitable Defeat Of Mister And Pete, but Jennifer Hudson says that she has NEVER touched any substance, including alcohol. Can you believe it? Not even a drag of a cigarette!
She told Manhattan magazine, “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.”
As for her role playing Winnie Mandela, Hudson said that was also a challenging role. “It was intimidating to play Winnie after seeing how much she means to the people there,’ she says. “To some she’s an angel and to some she’s Satan, but either way, woo!”
And to us, Jennifer Hudson is an angel!
